Always with a little bit of delay as it takes time to compile all the data, I give you the 300 best-selling vehicles in the world in June! Remember this is as close an estimation as you will get online, in the absence of official sales figures released by manufacturers and taking into account all the worldwide data accumulated on BSCB. The fight for the title of best-selling car in the world continues to rage, with the Ford Focus taking advantage of the generation change for the Corolla sedan to climb back into pole position with 96,985 sales vs. 95,040 for the Corolla, while the Ford F-Series maintains itself on the podium at #3 and 80,577 units. The Hyundai Elantra remains #4 with 79,373 sales but teases the Focus and Corolla when sales of the i30 hatchback are added: the Hyundai compact car adds up to 94,776 units in that case…
Excellent operation of the Chevrolet Cruze up 4 spots to #5 with 75,179 sales, its best worldwide ranking since last September, partly thanks to a best-ever performance in the USA due to the success of the new Turbo Diesel version. The Ford Fiesta is up one further rank to #7 at 65,312 units and the Renault Logan/Sandero is up 2 to #8 with 64,230 sales, now that the 2nd generation of the combo is starting to make waves worldwide. #38 over the Full Year 2012 and #24 in 2013 so far, the Ford Kuga continues to progress, up 4 more spots on May to land at a fantastic 15th position with 51,549 units and now teasing the Honda CR-V (#12 at 58,207 sales) to become the world’s best-selling SUV…
Further down, the Renault Clio is up 13 ranks to #19, the Toyota RAV4 remains extremely robust at #23 vs. #32 year-to-date and the BMW 3 Series is up 7 spots to #26. As far as newcomers are concerned, the Nissan Dayz landing directly at #139 in the world thanks to 12,231 units sold in Japan, the Renault Captur up 101 spots on May and breaking the 10,000 monthly units mark for the first time at #168 with 10,563 sales and the Peugeot 2008 making its very first appearance within the worldwide Top 300 at #243 with an estimated 6,565 units.
