New car sales in the Hong Kong part of China are in excellent shape once again in August: up 21% year-on-year to 4,588 registrations, which brings the year-to-date total to 34,343 units, up 12% on 2013 which was already up 11% on 2012 at the same time last year. Good times. Brand-wise, Toyota unsurprisingly leads the way with 22.2% share ahead of Mercedes at 10.8%, BMW at 9.4%, Volkswagen at 8% and Isuzu at 7.4%, reproducing the year-to-date Top 5. The Toyota Hiace is the most popular vehicle in the country once again in a Top 5 dominated by commercial vehicles: the Toyota Coaster is up 10 spots on July to #2, the Hyundai H1 is up 2 to #3 and the Toyota Crown LPG Taxi stable at #4. The VW Golf is the best-selling passenger car in 5th place with 138 sales and 3%, followed by the Honda Jazz up 8 ranks to #6 and the… Mercedes CLA, astoundingly third most popular passenger car at #7 with 116 units and 2.5% share, equal with the Mercedes E-Class.
