In South Africa, Hyundai, Kia, Great Wall and (on and off) Mercedes only share total brand sales but not models splits. For the first time in the history of BSCB we are able to share with you official sales figures for all Hyundai, Kia, Great Wall and Mercedes models for South Africa, as well as Chery and FAW. This enables us to finally understand the entirety of the South African market, giving us a fascinating insight into what are the real best-sellers in the country, without omission. The period for this new data is the First Half of 2015, and as expected Hyundai comes out in force, placing the Grand i10 at #10, the i20 at #22, the Tucson at #26, i10 at #33 and Accent at #35.
Mercedes for its part has the C-Class at a fantastic 11th position and the A-Class at #42 but manages to place a total of eight nameplates in the South African Top 100 so far in 2015. Kia also does very well with the Rio, Picanto and Sportage all slipping inside the Top 60. As far as Great Wall is concerned, the release of models splits uncovers a very solid performance of its Steed pickup, ranking #84 so far in 2015 and accounting for 56% of the brand’s sales in the country. Notice also the FAW V2 at #100, the Chery QQ3 at #184 and the Chery Fulwin2 at #189.
