Now 2013 looks like the Spanish market is slowly coughing its way out of depression… July is up 15% year-on-year to 75,184 registrations. Excellent news indeed, as this is only the 5th month of year-on-year increase in the last 3 years after August 2011, January 2012, August 2012 and April 2013. Even more impressive, this is the biggest year-on-year gain since June 2010 and the largest for a month of July since 1999! The PIVE scrapping plan is finally starting to show its effects. Threatened by the Opel Corsa for the title of best-selling car in Spain over the first half of the year, the Seat Ibiza regains control of the Spanish sales charts in July, ranking #1 for only the third time in the last 13 months after June 2012 and April 2013 thanks to 2,505 sales and 3.3% share and thus reinforcing its 2013 year-to-date pole position at 16,195 units and 3.5% vs. 15,254 and 3.3% for the Corsa, down to #7 this month.
Volkswagen has a stellar month: it is the #1 brand in the country with 9.7% market share, and places two models on the podium: both the Polo at #2 with 2,410 sales and the Golf at #3 with 2,377 units gain 6 spots on June and hold 3.2% of the market. The Renault Megane remains at a very solid 4th position vs. #9 year-to-date while the Renault Clio is down 3 ranks to #5 but still robust at 2.9% share. Further down, notice the Toyota Auris up 9 ranks to #13, the locally produced Renault Captur breaking into the Spanish Top 50 for the first time at #36 (+18), the Mercedes CLA sliding down one spot again to #58 and the Peugeot 2008 up 16 to #59.
