Only available once a year, the Light Commercial Vehicle Turkish figures are always fascinating because most of theses LCV’s are built locally and are actually the best-selling vehicles in the country. And 2011 is no exception even though the fight was extremely tight. After 5 years of Fiat Doblo domination, the Ford Transit Connect becomes the best-selling vehicle in Turkey with 37,883 sales, up 17% on 2010 and just above the Renault Symbol at 37,478 units (+31% and 2 spots) and the Fiat Doblo with 37,232 sales (+11%).
The overall Turkish market reaches record heights in 2011 at 864,439 units, up 14%. 270,920 of these are LCVs, up 8%. In the LCV ranking, all Top 3 models improve their share as they progress faster than the market, with the Ford Transit Connect at 14%, the Fiat Doblo at 13.7% and the Ford Transit rounding up the podium at 34,758 sales and 12.8%. The next 3 models are unchanged: the Fiat Fiorino at #4, followed by the Renault Kangoo and VW Caddy.
