Up until a month ago the model sales detail for Hyundai, Kia, Great Wall and (on and off) Mercedes were not available publicly in South Africa. This is not the case anymore, and exclusive to BSCB we are able to share a second update on the entirety of the South African new car market including sales of all models for the aforementioned brands along with Chery and FAW. This is a significant step towards understanding fully the largest market in Africa.
Among the resulting newcomers in the ranking, let’s notice the locally assembled Mercedes C-Class forever solid at #12 in August and #10 year-to-date, the Hyundai Grand i10 at #13 and #11 YTD, the Kia Picanto at #18 and Kia Rio at #20. Hyundai also places the i20, Tucson, H100, i10 and Accent inside the Top 50, while on top of the C-Class Mercedes has six additional nameplates within the August Top 100. The Great Wall Steed for its part remains at a high level with just under 100 sales this month.
