Ireland May 2011: Ford Focus and Renault Fluence take off

Ford Focus

The Irish car market stays very solid this month, up 9% year-on-year at 9,380 units and 12% year-to-date at 66,1089 registrations. The Ford Focus reacquaints itself with a familiar situation: the domination of Ireland car sales. At 8.8% share and 823 sales, the Focus is a distant #1 and jumps up two spots in the year-to-date ranking to #2 with 2,863 units (4.3%), on its way to reclaim the year-end pole position it occupied from 2000 to 2009 before being dethroned by the Renault Megane last year.

Renault Fluence

The Renault Fluence also shines this month in Ireland, up to 2nd place with a best-ever 5.4% share and 504 sales. It is now #5 year-to-date at 2,393 sales (3.6%). Still #1 in 2011, the VW Golf drops one spot vs. April in 3rd position but improves its market share to a very solid 5.1%. The Ford Fiesta is up 7 spots at #4, the VW Passat down 4 spots at #5 and the Nissan Micra up 3 spots to #7.
