Thanks to STAC I can now share with you sales of absolutely every single model sold in France in 2012! The highlights in the Top 50 best-sellers are covered in the original France Full Year 2012 here. Just outside the 50 most popular models, the Citroen DS5 is up 99 spots and 623% to land at #51 with 10,943 sales for its first full year in market, the Kia Sportage is up a solid 42% to #59, the Kia Rio up 152% to #67 (both models broke into the French monthly Top 50 for the first time this year), the Audi Q3 up 634% to #70, VW Up! up 2103% to #72, Hyundai i20 up 115% to #82, Range Rover Evoque up 247% to #89 and Hyundai i30 up 63% to #93. Only one additional newcomer finds its way into the ranking between the #51 and #100 spots: the Citroen C4 Aircross landing at #88 with 5,293 sales which is actually a relatively disappointing performance.
Beyond the Top 100, the new generation VW Beetle is up to #105 for its first full year of sales, the Ford B-Max hasn’t convinced yet and lands at #117, the Hyundai i40 is up a superb 475% to #121, even falling just 10 units short of the Renault Laguna in December, the Volvo V40 lands at #140, the Bollore Blue Car is up 287% to #149, Peugeot iOn up 121% to #153 thanks to slashed prices, the Peugeot 4008 arrives at a weak #154, Citroen C-Zero up 107% to #157 and the Citroen C6 up a surprising 106% to #160 for its last year of activity: production ceased on 19/12/2012 after only 23,384 units were built since launch in 2005.
