After one month off I am now able to share with you the sales of absolutely all models in Australia for May 2012. You can check out the original Top 40 article here. We won’t dwell on the top of the ranking as it has been covered before. Actually just one thing: notice (again) the 8th place of the Toyota Prado in May and 9th year-to-date compared to #28 in the Full Year 2011. Impressive. In the Top 20 it’s also worth mentioning the Nissan Dualis up to #19 this month: after a shy start it looks like the small Nissan SUV has found its target market in the country, it is now #26 year-to-date vs. #34 in 2011.
The Honda Civic is back into familiar territory at #23 in May vs. #43 year-to-date and #48 in 2011, whereas the Ford Falcon sinks to (very) unfamiliar depths: down to #28 this month at 1,008 sales and #20 year-to-date vs. #9 in 2011… Solid performance of the Great Wall V-Series #41 with 0.8% market share both in May and year-to-date and of the Mercedes E-Class up 53 spots on April to #46 with 693 sales and 0.7%. Notice also the Subaru XV down 8 ranks to #45 vs. #33 year-to-date: has the novelty effect rubbed off already?
Other notable performers in the Australian Top 100 this month include the Toyota FJ Cruiser at #70, the Mercedes M-Class up 37 spots to #78 and the Toyota Prius c at #83 with 243 sales and 0.3% vs. #58 with 405 units and 0.5% in April, its first month of sales in the country. Further down, the Audi Q3 is up 33 ranks on last month to #103, the Porsche Cayenne is up 20 to #126, the VW Scirocco up to #143 with 76 sales and the Peugeot 4008 is up to #214 with 13 units sold in its 2nd month in market.
