It’s a very painful month for new car sales in Switzerland: June is down a harsh 28% year-on-year to 29,805 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 156,305 units, down 12% on 2012. The VW Golf comes back to earth at 1,066 sales 3.7% share vs. 4.5% last month while the Skoda Octavia is back up to its traditional 2nd place at 800 units and 2.8%, its best market share in the country since last February. The BMW 3 Series has been stuck at an outstanding third position for the last 3 months, which has now earned it a logical #3 spot year-to-date, passing the VW Polo and to be compared to #18 in 2012! If it manages to hold this third spot until the end of the year, it will be the first time since 2008 that the 3 Series ranks on the Swiss annual podium.
