New car sales in New Caledonia, a French overseas territory located north-east of Australia, are down a harsh 12% year-on-year in August to 738 units, pulling the year-to-date total to 6.069 registrations, down 10% on 2014. Ford remains the most popular manufacturer on the archipelago but skids 42% to below 10% share vs. 12.4% (-14%) year-to-date. It distances Toyota up to 9.1% share vs. 7% year-to-date with Dacia rounding up the podium thanks to sales up 18%. Nissan (+26%), Suzuki (+133%) and Isuzu (+41%) also shine. In the models ranking, the Dacia Duster celebrates a 2nd consecutive month in pole position at 5.4%, dominating a herd of pickups: five of the Top 7 best-sellers in August belong to that segment: Ford Ranger (#2), Isuzu D-Max (#3), Nissan Navara (#4), Toyota Hilux (#6) and Mazda BT-50 (#7). Also impressive this month are the Toyota Land Cruiser at #9, Subaru XV at #10, Toyota RAV4 at #14, Chevrolet Aveo at #17 and Suzuki SX4 S-Cross at #22.
