New car sales in Taiwan shoot up 12% year-on-year in October to 35.810 registrations, lifting the year-to-date tally up 5% to 359.460. Toyota advances at twice the rate of the market with sales up 27% to 10.152 and 28.3% share, way above Mitsubishi/CMC stable at 3.654 and 10.2% and Nissan/Infiniti up 26% to 3.564 and 10%. Honda drops 12% to 6.5% but is up two spots on last month to #4. Mercedes (+15%), Lexus (+83%) and Luxgen (+41%) impress. In the models ranking, the Toyota Corolla sells more than any brand in market bar Toyota at 10.4% share and the RAV4 (6%) holds onto the 2nd place it holds year-to-date. The Mazda3 lodges another very impressive month at #3 again ahead of the CMC Veryca and Toyota Yaris but the hero of the month is the Honda HR-V appearing directly in 7th position and making Taiwan yet another market where the diminutive crossover is a blockbuster seller. Note that like in China an XR-V model is also available in Taiwan.
