New car sales in Ireland are down 8% year-on-year in February to 10,617 registrations, that’s better than the -19% from January but still not very encouraging for the rest of the year. Year-to-date the Irish market is down 15% on 2012 to 27,854 units. After ranking #3 over the Full Year 2012 and in January, the Nissan Qashqai brilliantly takes the lead of the Irish models ranking for the 2nd time after last March thanks to 676 sales and 6.4% share, a score that enables it to also rank #1 year-to-date at 1,335 units and 4.8%, just ahead of the VW Golf  (#2 in February) with 1,323 sales and 4.7%.
