Yes, that’s right. I give you sales figures for all cars sold in Europe last year!
Let’s look straight outside the Top 50, already well-known to you, to notice the best newcomers of the year: the Dacia Duster at #73 (54,388 sales) and the Citroen DS3 at #74 (52,987 units). The Jaguar XF is up 22% at #136 with 20,109 sales and the Range Rover Sport up 29% to #141 at 17,935 units.
Not a really good year for the BMW X6 down 10% to #142 and the Audi TT down 11% to #143. The Porsche Cayenne is boosted by its facelift, gaining 33% and 18 spots to #163 while the Porsche Panamera knocks on the Top 200’s door at #202 with 6,606 sales, up 141%.
The best-selling Lexus in 2010 in Europe is the RX at #179 but the CT will pass it in 2011. The outrageous Mercedes SLS AMG lands in 276th position with 1,601 sales, the Ferrari California is up 45% to 1,375 sales at #288 and the Lamborghini Gallardo is down 28% to 351 sales at #338.
Rolls-Royce places the new Ghost at #339 with 350 sales and the Phantom at #363 and 131 units, while Bentley positions the Continental Flying Spur at #352 with 235 sales. The last model on the list is the Bugatti Veyron with 11 units sold, down 35%.
There are only 5 Chinese models in the ranking. The DR1 (or Riich M1) is the best-seller at #246 with 3,153 sales, possibly the first time a Chinese model ranks within the European Top 250. The DR5 (or Chery Tiggo) follows at #271 (-29%), then the Great Wall Steed at #302 (+3%), the Great Wall Hover at #322 (+1%) and the Brilliance BS4 at #330 (+130%). Nothing too impressive yet…
