New car sales in Hong Kong are still compiled by a separate organisation (HKMTA) even though it is now technically part of China and show new car sales up a meagre 0.6% year-on-year to 4.652 units, with the year-to-date total now standing at 46.330 registrations, up 5% on 2014. Below Toyota down a worrying 21% to 1.054 sales and 22.7% share, BMW is up a spectacular 72% on a year ago to 688 deliveries and 14.8%. This fantastic result is partly due to the exceptional success of the BMW 2 Series Tourer: thanks to 215 deliveries of the all-new Gran Tourer, the BMW nameplate simply takes the lead of the Hong Kong models ranking in October with 273 sales and 5.9% share, outselling the perennial leader the Toyota Hiace at 235 units and 5.1%.
Audi also impresses with sales up 3-fold on a year ago to 253 units and 5.4%, as do Land Rover (+131%) and Volvo at a round +100%. Over on the models ranking, notice the Honda Stepwagon remaining at #3, the Toyota Spade at #5, Toyota Sienta at #7, BMW 1 Series at #10, Mercedes S-Class at #11, Land Rover Discovery Sport at #18, Volvo XC90 at #28 and Mercedes GLE at #30.
