Passenger car sales are up 12% year-on-year in June to 1.29 million units, adding up to 8.18 million units halfway through 2013, up a magnificent 17% on 2012. The Ford Focus is back in pole position for the first time so far this year thanks to 31,499 sales, a great way to celebrate one year since its first #1 month. However this figure includes two generations of the model, which Ford does not separate unlike all other manufacturers.

Hyundai Elantra Langdong China June 2013Should it be the Hyundai Elantra instead? Or the VW Lavida?

…At this little game, the Hyundai Elantra (3 generations currently on sale) adds up a much stronger 35,140 sales, or 32,069 with the last 2 generations alone. The VW Lavida is down to #2 at 25,610 units, still up a whopping 148% year-on-year, and remains #1 so far in 2013 with 211,567 sales. Notice the VW Gran Lavida, its station wagon version, up 91 spots and tripling its sales on May to #66 at 6,122 units, meaning the Lavida total stands at 31,732, above the Focus.

Great Wall Haval M4 China June 2013. Picture courtesy of bitauto.comThe Great Wall Haval M4 ranks at a best-ever #32 this month.

The Chevrolet Sail is up 2 spots to #3, the VW Sagitar stays at #4, the Nissan Sylphy is up 780% year-on-year (!) to #9 and #1 Japanese model and the VW Magotan (aka European Passat) is up 2 to #10 vs. #17 year-to-date. Further down, the VW Tiguan is up 4 to #12, Honda CR-V up 5 to #13 and the VW Santana is now taking full advantage of the new generation, up 35 ranks on last month to #18 at 14,231 units.

Roewe 350 China June 2013. Picture courtesy of che.comThe Roewe 350 sells over 10,000 monthly units for the first time in June.

The Great Wall Haval H6 is the most popular Chinese model for the 4th consecutive month at #19 with 14,171 sales, but its advantage over the Emgrand EC7 (#21) has thawed to just 147 units. Great performance of the… Great Wall Haval M4, up 6 ranks on May and 226% year-on-year to #32 at 11,401 sales. The Roewe 350 arrives at #4 Chinese and also hits a very significant milestone: it breaks the 10,000 monthly sales-barrier for the very first time at #36 with 10,223 units, up 88% year-on-year. The BYD F3 Surui (#37), ChangAn Honor (#43, up 31 spots!), BYD L3 (#46) and Venucia R50/D50 (#50) are the only other Chinese cars in the Top 50.

FAW Besturn X80 China June 2013. Picture courtesy of cheshi.comThe FAW Besturn X80 launched in April (#184), was up to #141 in May and is #84 in June.

Other great performers this month include the Nissan Teana up a further 4 spots to #27 vs. #57 year-to-date, the Ford Kuga up 10 ranks to a best-ever #41, the Toyota Highlander up 22 to #42, Skoda Fabia up 71 to #65, Audi Q3 up 28 to #80, the FAW Besturn X80 up 56 to break into the Top 100 for the first time at #85 and the Skoda Rapid up 96 to #103. There are also a few all-new models making their very first appearance in the ranking in June but they will be covered in our new monthly Chinese series “Focus on the all-new models…”
