* Click on title for the Top 160 best-selling models and Top 55 All-brands ranking! *

LAST UPDATE: Now with all models selling over 100 units this month. .

Thanks to Autoblog Español and STAC I can now share with you more detail about the French October 2012 models ranking, all the official Clio generations sales as well as the 206/207, C3/C4/Picasso splits. The Clio 3 is at 6,360 sales and 3.9% vs. 4,721 and 2.9% for the Clio 4 and 1,389 and 0.9% for the Clio Campus. The C4 is slightly lower than my estimates and ranks #8 while the C3 is slightly higher but stays #3 with 6,187 units and 3.9%. The Peugeot 206+ now sells more than the 207 at 1,873 units and #21 vs. 1,052 and #42. This will change now that the 207 has become the 207+ and the 206+ will see its production stop.

The biggest other new news are the arrival in the Top 50 of the all-new Ford B-Max, up 61 spots on September to #49 with 858 sales and 0.5%, and the Volvo V40 breaking into the French Top 100 for the first time, up 35 ranks to #87 with 481 units and 0.3% as does the Fiat 500L at #99 and 354 sales. Notice also the Honda CR-V up 19 spots to #111 and the Peugeot 4008 up 7 to #126. Other notable results for new models include the Dacia Dokker at 47 sales, Seat Toledo at 32, Skoda Rapid at 18, Citroen C-Elysée at 15 and Peugeot 301 at 9.

There is now also a Top 55 All-brands ranking, with Renault, Peugeot and Citroen logically leading the charge. Volkswagen is very robust at #4 with 12,740 sales and 7.4%, and notice Fisker and Tesla each selling one unit in France this month.
