The brands ranking comes first, detailed models ranking will follow shortly. New car sales in Monaco are up a stunning 17% year-on-year to 2.867 registrations. The podium is unchanged on a year ago: Mercedes (+15%) leads the way with 15.8% share, followed by Audi at 12.6% (+26%) and Porsche at 9.6% (+27%).
