I am hoping to set in place a regular models ranking update flow for the Philippines when I visit the country in early April for the Manila International Auto Show, but for now I can give you a brands ranking. The Filipino new market is up a huge 23% year-on-year in February to 16,635 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 31,417 units, up 33% on 2012. After lodging an all-time record figure in 2012 at 182,955 new vehicles sold, Philippines car sales are on track for their first year above 200,000 units in 2013…
No surprises in the brand ranking: Toyota leads the way by far with 5,913 sales and 35.5% share this month, which is exactly its 2012 share. Mitsubishi shines and reaches a world-best 21.4% market share thanks to 3,554 units compared to 20.4% year-to-date and 19.1% in 2012 while Hyundai rounds up the podium like in 2012 but with a disappointing 9.8% share and 1,632 sales due to supply issues.
