The New Caledonian market – a small French Overseas Territory located north-east of Australia – is up 5.4% year-on-year in November to 782 registrations, meaning the year-to-date tally is now up 10.3% to 7.968 units. Note New Caledonian sales are counted separately from French metropolitan data so these figures aren’t already included in our France November update. This month Peugeot snaps the brands pole position for the second time in the past three months, up five spots on October and 73% year-on-year to a stunning 14.2% share vs. 9% so far in 2017. Dacia (-11%) is up one rank to #2, followed by Citroen (+32%) and Renault (+56%) with Ford in difficulty (-17%) rounding up the Top 5.
