German Private Sales (PS) data is always a little controversial because by definition: are counted as private the cars sold to private buyers. Demo cars, rental cars and long-term leases are not counted as private along with cars sold to companies. This explains the fact that as cars become more expensive, their PS ratio tends to drop: a lot of them are actually on a long-term lease, which can be argued is also a private ‘sale’. In June there were 103,235 new Private Sales in Germany, a 38.2% PS ratio, exactly the same as in June. The year-to-date Private Sales total stands at 644,577 out of an overall market at 1.8 million, or a 37.3% PS ratio.

Mercedes GLA Germany July 2014Outstanding 57% Private Sales ratio for the Mercedes GLA vs. a market average of 38.2%.

As it is the case in the overall ranking (albeit with one other model), Volkswagen monopolises the Private Sales podium with the Golf (34.1% PS ratio), Polo (61.1%) and Tiguan (48.4%) but this month the Ford Fiesta establishes itself in 4th position with private buyers thanks to 2,479 sales and a 57.7% PS ratio much stronger than the one it displays year-to-date (44.4%). Mercedes places no less than 4 models inside the Top 12: the B-Class (#5), C-Class (#7), A-Class (#8) and E-Class (#12) while Audi only has one (the A3 at #6) and BMW none, with its best performer at a low #17 (the 1 Series). Finally, notice the Mini at #15, the VW Beetle at #27 and the Mercedes GLA at a best-ever #33.

    Not rent companies.

    The Passat is the working horse for field service engineers and commercial representatives. This cars are leased by companies for 18 to 36 months and then sold on the second hand market.
