At 23.726 deliveries, new car sales in Egypt are down again in October: -9% on the same month in 2014, a further decline than the one it is experiencing year-to-date at -2% and 232.783 units. Surprise in the models pole position this month: the Nissan Sunny is up 65% on its September score to lead the market overall with 2.408 units, crossing the symbolic 10% market share mark. Unfortunately this is coming too late in the year to have a serious impact on the Sunny’s year-to-date ranking: still #3 with 5.1% of the market below the Chevrolet TFR (8.9%) and Hyundai Verna (7.8%), kicked down to #2 and #3 respectively this month. The Renault Logan lodges another extraordinary month in 4th place at 6.5% share vs. 3.3% so far in 2015, and is followed by the Chevrolet Lanos and Aveo. The Kia Sportage is up 4 spots on last month to #7, the Chevrolet Cruze is up 18 to #11 and the Nissan Pickup up 19 to #17.
Korean manufacturer Hyundai launches two new nameplates this month in Egypt that are revealing of the new commercial links the local automative industry is continuing to build worldwide. First, the Hyundai Solaris, shipped from St. Petersburg and specifically adapted to Egypt (and Lebanon)’s harsh climate, lands directly at #15. Hyundai says it will have 4.000 Solaris ready for both markets by the end of 2015. More on this here. Secondly, the Indian-made Creta SUV appears in the Egyptian ranking at #34 ahead of its official launch across Africa and the Middle-East scheduled for November.
