Sales of Kei cars are down by just 1% year-on-year in February to 184,927 registrations, which is very impressive given we are comparing it with a very high base one year ago. Year-to-date, the market is stable at 339,095 units. The Honda N-Box leads the way for the 5th consecutive month and the 10th time in the last 11 months thanks to 22,353 sales, up 46% year-on-year. But the #2 is catching up: boosted by its new generation, the Daihatsu Move is up 39% on February 2012 to 20,206 units while the Suzuki Wagon R rounds up the podium like last month and last year with 17,033 sales. The Daihatsu Mira is back up 2 spots to #4 but still down 37% year-on-year whereas the Honda N-One continues to progress at a record 10,981 units but down one rank to #6.
