After four consecutive months of double-digit year-on-year gains, the Swiss new car market falls back into recession in October at -4% to 25.236 registrations, with the year-to-date total still up 8% at 264.829 units. The three flagship brands of the Volkswagen Group account for a large part of this year-on-year drop: both Volkswagen (#1) and Audi (#3) are down 14% while Skoda (#4) is down 8%. Mercedes takes advantage of the situation by climbing to #2 overall with sales up 17% to 1.724. BMW is surprisingly down 12%, Renault is up 22%, Suzuki up 10% and Mazda up 46%.
