New car sales in Singapore are down a dismal 29% year-on-year in November to just 1,632 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 20,375 sales, down 21% on 2012. For only the second time in the last 18 months after last July, Toyota leads the brands ranking in the country with a huge 342 sales and 21% share, keeping in mind this figure includes Lexus sales, and given this month Audi sells more than Volkswagen (192 units vs. 190) it is legitimate to wonder whether Lexus is the only reason why Toyota is ahead…
Mercedes reinforces its year-to-date leadership thanks to 270 sales and 16.5%, adding up to 3,506 and 17.2% so far in 2013 vs. 3,295 and 16.2% for BMW, leader over the Full Year 2011 and 2012 but down to #5 this month. 2013 will remain in the Singapore automotive history books as the first ever year Mercedes topped the sales charts, after BMW put an end to a decade of Toyota domination back in 2011. Further down the ranking, notice also Mazda up to #6 vs. #18 in 2012, Hyundai up 10 spots on October to #8, Chevrolet also up 10 to #14 and Subaru up 6 to #21.
