One year ago, lunar year celebrations falling early in the month and a series of typhoons resulted in a particularly weak month at 25.226 sales. Accordingly, this year’s September score is up 33% on this low base to 33.461 units, lifting the cumulative total up 4% to 323.650. Toyota surges 78% to 8.327 sales and 24.8% share vs. 28.1% year-to-date, distancing Mitsubishi/CMC at 11.8% (+59%) and Nissan/Infiniti at 10.8% (+58%). Mazda (+73%) also impress in 5th place. Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla stays on top with 9% share vs. 9.9% year-to-date ahead of the Toyota RAV4 at 4.5% vs. 4.3% – replicating both the 2016 YTD and FY 2015 orders. The Mazda3 is the performer of the month, jumping up to third place overall with 1.409 sales, while other stunners include the Mercedes E-Class (#18), Hyundai Tucson (#23), VW Tiguan (#25) and Mercedes GLE (#34). The Suzuki Vitara makes its very first appearance inside Taiwan’s Top 70 directly at #33 with 255 sales.
