In July, new car sales in Singapore are down a horrid 27% year-on-year to just 1,702 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 13,391 units, down 21% on 2012. For the first time in almost one year (since August 2012), Toyota is the most popular manufacturer in the country this month (Lexus sales included) with 367 sales and 21.6% but remains #4 year-to-date at 1,786 units and 13.3%. Mercedes stays #2 with 288 sales and 16.8% and keeps its pole position year-to-date at 2,365 units and 17.7%.
Both Volkswagen at #3 and Audi at #4 are up one spot on June to 15.9% and 9.2% share respectively, both significantly higher than their year-to-date levels of 13.9% and 8.1%. Leader last month, BMW falls to #5 in July at just 7.2% share vs. 15.5% year-to-date (#2). Notice also Mazda at #7, Hyundai and Kia both up 5 ranks to #8 and #12 respectively, Subaru at #14 and Datsun (re) appearing in the ranking at #30 with 1 unit sold which could be a freak event or the very first Datsun Go registered in the country.
