The Taiwanese new car market is down slightly in October at -0.8% to 35.512 registrations, yet the year-to-date tally remains in positive territory – just – at +0.7% to 362.016 units. Market leader Toyota is in great difficulty this month with sales down 20% year-on-year to 22.8% share, a full three percentage points below its YTD level of 25.8%. Nissan/Infiniti (+0.1%) rallies back up three spots on September to #2 overall, distancing Mitsubishi/CMC down 5%. Both Honda and Ford surge 30% ahead of their score a year ago, the only carmakers registering double-digit growth. Mercedes is up a solid 7% to #6 overall. Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla (-19%) and RAV4 (-35%) lead once again but both drop sharply, they are followed this month by the Nissan Tiida (+46%) and Honda CR-V (+87%) with the Toyota Sienta rounding up the Top 5. The Luxgen U5, launched last month, is up 82.5% and 8 spots on its inaugural score to break into its home Top 10 at #7. This is the highest ranking hit by a Luxgen nameplate since the U6 Turbo ranked #6 in January 2015. The U6 Turbo holds the record for the highest ever ranking posted by a Luxgen model at home: #3 in January 2014. Finally, notice also the Ford Kuga up 208% to #17, the Mercedes GLC up 158% to #21 and the Suzuki Vitara up 88% to #23.
