On paper the Spanish market is up by another flamboyant 12% year-on-year to 76.904 registrations, the best January score since 2008 (101.664), showing signs of being back to pre-recession levels. Looking closer though, the year-on-year gain is almost 100% artificial, with private sales up just 1.5% to 42.651 units and 55.5% share vs. 61.3% a year ago, whereas sales to rental companies are up a whopping 35% to 11.651 and business sales are up 26% to 22.602. Although the detail by channel isn’t available, Opel has been known to load up on tactical sales all across Europe and notably at home in Germany and – coincidence? – lodges a particularly spectacular month in Spain, shooting up 71% on a year ago to #1 brand in the country with 9.4% share vs. #9 in December.

Peugeot 308 Spain January 2016. Picture courtesy of 308 sales are up 42% year-on-year in Spain in January.

If the Seat Leon (+10%) holds onto the pole position it has now snapped for two consecutive years, followed by the VW Golf (-7%) and Peugeot 308 (+42%), it’s a festival of Opel in the Top 20. The Astra is up 60% to #4, the Corsa up 25% to #5, the Mokka breaks into the Spanish Top 10 for the very first time thanks to volumes doubling year-on-year at #10 (previous best: #13 last February) and the Zafira Tourer is up a gigantic 149% to #17. Notice also Peugeot up 31% at #3 in the brands ranking, Citroen up 27%, Audi up 21%, BMW up 18%, Mercedes up 19%, Kia up 50%, Mazda up 94%, Land Rover up 37% and Honda up 82%.

  1. Every brand does tactical sales. Look at what VW did this month in NL, France and Italy. They even admitted it was tactical sales.

    Ever considered Opel is just popular in Spain? I was just there a few months ago and saw a lot of them. The Zafira is used as a cab a lot, so is the C4 Picasso and basically all Dacia’s.

    1. Matt are always talking about tactical sales of others brands such us VW, Renault, Ford, etc.. You’ve been distracted.

      In regards to Gm-Opel in Spain, that’s normal, GM (Chevrolet, Vauxhall, Opel, Daewoo, etc..) has some factories in Spain.
