New light vehicle sales in Taiwan are up a very satisfying 19% year-on-year in April to 34,236 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 133,640 units, up 12% on 2013. Below the Toyota Corolla (10.3% share) and RAV4 (4.2%) both in fine form, two model updates bring the nameplates from the bottom of the ranking straight into the Top 5: the Toyota Vios shoots up to #3 with 1,349 sales and the Nissan Livina is back where we are used to see it at #4 with 1,327 units, both models instantly grabbing almost 4% of the Taiwanese market. Notice also the Hyundai Santa Fe making its appearance at #15 with 609 sales and 1.8% share, the Mercedes E-Class extremely solid again at #17, the Mitsubishi Outlander up 16 ranks on March to #29 and the Ford Fiesta up to #33.
