Just as the country is thrown into turmoil with its president in exile in Saudi Arabia, we have access to rare official data for Yemen where 4.811 new light vehicles found a buyer over the 1st Quarter of 2015. Yemen is the country in the world where Toyota dominates the most, with an unbelievable 81.6% market share so far this year (3.927 sales), 83.7% when adding Lexus (4.026 units)… Suzuki (4.1%), Hyundai (3.6%) and Isuzu (2.2%) follow at a very large distance.
Accordingly, the models ranking is completely obliterated by Toyota, with the Top 3 models holding a combined 70.1% market share: the Hilux leads at 28% followed by the Land Cruiser Pick-up (21.1%) and Land Cruiser (21%). The Toyota FJ Cruiser ranks at a world-best #5, the Lexus LX points its bonnet in 6th place and the Suzuki APV Truck is the best-selling non-Toyota model at #8.
