The UAE new car market is up 1% year-on-year over the First Quarter of 2015 to 101.676 registrations. Toyota is the most popular manufacturer in the country once again thanks to 30.575 sales and 30.1% share, distancing Nissan (17.2%) while Mitsubishi shoots up to 12.4% share and rounds up the podium like in 2014. Hyundai (5.3%), BMW (4.7%) and Ford (4%) follow with Lexus at #8 and Land Rover at #10. Apart from the Toyota Hilux sovereign in pole position with 5.8% share, we witness a complete reshuffle in the models ranking: the Mitsubishi Lancer EX is up 3-fold year-on-year to jump to 2nd place overall thanks to 5.117 units sold for a 5% market share, a rare performance for a nameplate that hasn’t made significant waves in any country so far.
