New car sales in Hong Kong (China) are up a splendid 17% year-on-year in October to 4,364 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 39,538 units, up 12% on 2012. For the first time since last February, the BMW 5 Series, leader over the Full Year 2012, manages to top the Hong Kong sales charts thanks to 247 sales and 5.7%. This is however not enough to catch up on the Toyota Hiace, still #1 so far in 2013 at 1,852 units and 4.7% vs. 1,664 and 4.2% for the 5 Series. The Mercedes E-Class is solid at #2 with 4.4% share, as is the Toyota Noah at #5 with 3.3%.
Other great performers this month in Hong Kong include the BMW 1 Series up 5 spots on September to #7 with 115 sales and 2.6%, the Audi A3 up 21 to #10 at 101 units and 2.3%, Toyota Wish up 18 to #16 and Mitsubishi ASX up 19 to #31. But the big event in the Top 20 is the thunderous arrival of the all-new BMW 4 Series at #20 with 66 sales and 1.5%, making Hong Kong the very first territory in the world where this model has managed to crack the Top 100 (let alone the Top 20!). Notice also the Lexus ES up from #166 in September to #26 this month.
