Whereas all other large European markets record a year-on-year gain, German new car sales are down 3.5% in June to 327.693 registrations. The year-to-date tally remains however in positive halfway through the year at +3.1% to 1.787.026 units.  Strikingly, the Top 7 best-selling manufacturers all lodge a negative result this month. Leader Volkswagen falls faster than the market at -5% to 18.5% share, as is the case for Audi (-9%), Opel (-9%), BMW (-18%) and Ford (-9%). Mercedes (-1%) and Skoda (-3%) manage meagre share gains thanks to restrained declines. Renault (+22%) and Seat (+19%) are the heroes of the Top 10 while beyond, Toyota (+23%), Peugeot (+14%) and Mitsubishi (+32%) are the only other Top 20 carmakers able to post a double-digit gains this month. Improvements are more frequent among smaller brands, with Tesla (+46%), Lada (+82%), Lexus (+31%), Maserati (+45%), Chevrolet (+184%), Bentley (+54%), Aston Martin (+46%) and Lotus (+58%) all excelling, none selling more than 400 units however.

The Opel Crossland X is up to #70 in June. 

Over in the models ranking, the VW Golf holds dearly onto the top spot but drops another 10% to 6.1% share. The VW Polo climbs up one spot on May and 17% on a year ago on the back of discounts on the outgoing generation and lands in 2nd place above the VW Passat (-7%) and Mercedes C-Class (-3%). One year after launch, the new generation still boosts VW Tiguan sales up 23% at #5. The Skoda Fabia is up three ranks on last month to #6, distancing the Opel Astra, down a surprisingly harsh 19% and the Skoda Octavia down 11% despite its recent facelift. The Seat Leon is down 1% year-on-year but climbs to #12. Just renewed, the Mercedes E-Class (+24%) and BMW 5 Series (+46%), now the brand’s best-seller, gain significant ground, just as the Mercedes GLC (+30%), Seat Ibiza (+83%) and Mitsubishi Space Star (+77%) also do. The Audi Q2 (#55) is the most popular recent launch ahead of the Opel Crossland X up 93 spots on May to #70, the Skoda Kodiaq (#81) and Toyota C-HR (#89).

  1. @ Rick: talking to yourself ?

    I wonder how many e-Golf were sold. Unfortunately they are not listed separately by KBA like in the USA: 1,887 units in the first 6 months of 2017, 30 % more than 2016.

  2. Renault The master of Fake Sales: 6234 +51.42% and Master of Discount -20 % for a new Megane(and more) or with a one-day registration -30% and more…
    Peugeot sales here in Germany in 3 Weeks 5000 Peugeot 208 for 99 Euro/Month (all inclusive !!!)
    The Q5 has a Delivery time from 7-8 Months here in Germany…big Deliverys starting from October…
    The Q2 cannibalized the Q3..

    And VW is stingy with Discounts only 8-10 % for new Golf,This is too little for the private Buyers..

    Porsche 911 ? : 713 from that has 428 All Wheel Drive and 454 Convertible and 46,4% Private Buyers

    1. Old news: The 208 E99 offer. Has been postponed 2 months ago, only a few hundred units were involved.
      Golf Rabatt just 8-10%? Think again! http://www.meinauto.de/volkswagen/neuwagen/golf/
      Master of Fake reg’s? Check Wolfsburg: 800.000 inaccurate VW registrations, and not just in France

      Other than that, “fake registration” is a common issue. VW, Renault, Opel, FIAT, many US brands in the US, they all “steer” along that practice. One of the reasons PSA is so profitable is b/c its CEO Carlos Tavares simply refuses to give in.

    1. Hi Justas – thanks for picking this up, the 911 is now in the ranking with 713 sales.
      All the best,

    1. Hi Pat,
      In the compact segment, sedans have traditionally struggled in Germany, and the Jetta only follows suit. See how BMW did not release a 1 Series sedan (only in China) and Audi took a couple of generations to launch an A3 sedan which is, here too, mainly destined to China. Only the Skoda Octavia (which you can argue is a class above), and to a lesser extent the Skoda Rapid have been successes in this segment.
      Hope this helps,
      All the best,
      Matt

    1. True!
      And they suffer even more when we look at private sales only (make sure to check the update of this article).
      All the best,
      Matt

  3. Audi Q5: -36%
    Audi Q3: -43%

    Such declines in Germany are very rare, especially from 2 (German) vehicles operating in the heartland of the current automotive frenzy, SUV’s.
