In July Dutch companies bought 4,290 Light Commercial Vehicles, bringing the year-to-date total to 38,225 registrations. Big change this month: for the first time since we started tracking LCV sales in the Netherlands (in September 2011), the VW Transporter takes the lead with an outstanding 513 sales and 12% market share vs. 10.5% year-to-date, relegating the VW Caddy to the 2nd place at 498 units and a still very robust 11.6% share, compared to 11.8% (4,521 sales) year-to-date. A great performance for Volkswagen, grabbing nearly 24% of the market with just two models.
Up one spot on June, the Mercedes Sprinter jumps back on the podium thanks to 381 units sold for an amazing 8.9% share, its best this year so far. The Peugeot Partner also has a great month, up 3 spots to #4 with 309 sales and 7.2% vs. #7 and 5.6% year-to-date. Other great performers this month include the Opel Combo Van up to #11 and 2.9% and the Opel Movano up to #13 and 2.5%.
