I wish I could bring you good news about Spanish new car sales in June but it is not the case: at -12% year-on-year, the market totals only 73,352 units, the first June below 80,000 sales in 20 years. At half-year, sales are down 8% to 406,581 units, here again its lowest level in 20 years and only 47% of the record 870,723 units reached in 2005. After falling down to #5 in April, the Seat Ibiza takes command of the models ranking again with 3,295 sales and 4.5% share, bringing its year-to-date total to 15,738 units and 3.9%. It is the 8th time in the last 12 months that the Ibiza ranks #1 in its native country.
In fact this month the models podium is identical to the 2012 year-to-date and Full Year 2011 rankings, with the Nissan Qashqai at #2 with 2,728 sales and 3.7% and the Renault Megane at #3 with 2,446 units and 3.3%. The Opel Corsa and VW Golf both drop one spot on May but stay solid at 3.2% share, well ahead of their 2012 YTD levels. Good performances of the Ford Focus (+6) and Citroen C4 (+5).
In June we welcome a new entrant in the Spanish Top 10: the Peugeot 208 is up 19 ranks on last month to land in 10th position with 1,475 sales and 2% share. Other great performances this month include the Audi A1 up a massive 19 spots to a record #18 with 1,053 sales and 1.4%, the Audi A4 up 17 to #19, the Skoda Yeti at #59, Seat Mii at #67 and Dacia Lodgy at #97.
