It seems like the Swiss new car market has suddenly started shaking off years of stagnation in the past couple of months: August marks the third consecutive double-digit year-on-year increase at +18% to 23.431 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total to 215.457 units, up 9% on 2014. Volkswagen is the most popular brand in the country as usual, evolving like the market at 12.5% share (+18%). The 3 luxury German carmakers continue their race to the top: Mercedes is up to 2nd place overall thanks to sales up a whopping 42% on August 2014 to 1.925 units, distancing BMW at 1.850 (+31%) with Audi in 4th place at 1.701 (+26%). In ranking order, Renault (+46%), Opel (+32%), Mazda (+71%), Seat (+39%), Subaru (+154%), Porsche (+77%) and Smart (+361%) all take off.

Mazda CX-3 Switzerland August 2015The CX-3 helps Mazda sales up 71% in August in Switzerland.

Model-wise, below the ultra-dominant VW Golf (5.2% share) and Skoda Octavia (3.7%), the Seat Alhambra soars 26 spots on July to brilliantly land on the podium thanks to the facelifted model with 479 sales and 2% share. The VW Polo makes the Top 4 best-sellers 100% Volkswagen Group, with the BMW 2 Series improving further on extremely strong scores in the past two months (#9 in June and #6 in July) to reach an outstanding 5th position with 452 units and 1.9%. Only in Germany (#3) does the 2 Series sell better than in Switzerland. Notice also the Mercedes A-Class up 5 ranks to #9, the Audi Q5 up one to #11 vs. #23 year-to-date, the Mazda CX-5 up 16 to #12, the Opel Mokka up 19 to #16, Hyundai i20 up 58 to #17 and the Subaru XV up 61 to #18.

VW T6 Switzerland August 2015The All-new VW T6 is about to crack the Swiss Top 100.

Among recent launches, the Suzuki Vitara is up 25 spots to #42, the Mazda CX-3 gains a further 5 ranks to #44, the Tesla Model S remains in the Swiss Top 50 for the third consecutive month at #48, the Hyundai Tucson is up 119 spots to #59, the Renault Kadjar down two to #71, the Opel Karl up 10 to #80, VW T6 (new gen Transporter) up 28 to #107, Jaguar XE up 7 to #147 and the Land Rover Discovery Sport up two to #148. We also welcome the Honda HR-V at #250 and the McLaren 675LT at #333 with its first Swiss unit sold this month.
