Fascinating months for the Algerian new car market, with recent launches being met with instant success in the country. The overall market is up a whopping 64% year-on-year in February to 44,360 registrations and up 47% year-to-date. The Dacia Logan is once again the runaway leader thanks to a huge 5,522 sales and 12.4% share, now adding up to 10,425 units after just two months. Astonishing start for the Renault Clio IV landing directly in 2nd place at 3,083 units (this includes a few Clio III as well).
The ‘low-cost’ Peugeot 301 confirms it is a serious contender for the title of Algeria’s most popular model in 2013: after lodging a world-best 5th position in January, it is up a further two spots this month to land on the Algerian podium at #3 with 2,530 sales and 5.7%, and now #4 year-to-date at 4,572 units. The other Peugeot newcomer, the 208, also fares well: it ranks #6 this month with 2,085 sales and 4.7% share. Brand-wise, Peugeot stays on top with 8,970 sales and 18,231 year-to-date (thanks to the 301 and 208), followed by Renault at 7,275 and Dacia at 6,026. Hyundai is back in the Top 5 at #4 and 4,914 units with the Accent back up to #4 with 2,109 sales.
