The South African new car market posts a shy 0.4% year-on-year improvement in November at 51.256 registrations, yet 2015 is headed towards a negative result at -4% after 11 months to 568.584 units. Light commercial vehicles including bakkies (South African for pickup truck) save the market this month at +1% to 15.242 while passenger cars are down 0.6% to 33.038. Toyota is up 18% to 22.9% share but the Volkswagen Group is down 4% to 13.9%, just above Ford at 13.3% (+8%). GM Isuzu overtakes Hyundai-Kia for 4th place.
The new model pushes the Ford Figo inside the South African Top 10.
For the fifth month running we are proud to be able to offer to you BSCB members a complete models ranking for South Africa including Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes and Great Wall nameplates which are otherwise not made public. Boosted by run-out prices before the new generation arrives in February 2016, the Toyota Hilux triumphs with 3.938 sales and 7.7% share above the new Ford Ranger at 5.1% and the facelifted Toyota Corolla/Auris at 5%, relegating the VW Polo and Polo Vivo to #4 and #5 respectively. The Toyota Quantum is up five spots on October to #6, the Ford Figo up 8 to #9, the Hyundai i20 slips out of the Top 10 at #11, the Mercedes C-Class is solid at #15, the Renault Captur up 11 to #21 while the new Toyota Aygo (#39) handicaps the Etios down to #12. The all-new Ford Everest is up 7 ranks to #56 and we welcome the Suzuki Vitara at #138 and the Mazda CX-3 at #143.
