After Brazil and France, Iceland is the third country on Best Selling Cars Blog for which I am now able to share with you an intermediate ranking at mid-month. In fact, Umferdarstofa, the Icelandic website publishing car sales, updates its data daily! If you are interested in checking car sales in Iceland every day you should click here. At mid-June, 1.003 vehicles were purchased in Iceland, that’s nearly as much as for the full month of May! (1.334). Potentially because in June in Iceland it’s daylight literally 24/7 so there is a lot more time to check out cars in dealerships…

Given the size of the Icelandic car market, monthly and fortnightly models rankings are to be taken with a pinch of salt. While last month Toyota monopolised the podium, in June it’s the turn of Volkswagen to dominate, placing the Polo at #1 with 94 sales and 9.4% share followed by the Golf at 75 units. They are respectively #3 and #6 in the 2012 year-to-date ranking.

Suzuki also has a fantastic time with the Grand Vitara up 32 spots on May to climb onto the podium at #3 with 62 sales and the Jimny up 10 ranks to #5 and 55 units. The Toyota Yaris, #1 year-to-date, is down to #8 while the Skoda Octavia (#2 YTD) is #4. Other great performers over the period include the Hyundai i10 up 40 spots to #9, the Kia Sorento up 14 to #10 and the Toyota Corolla up to #19.
