New light vehicle sales in New Caledonia, a French Overseas archipelago located north-east of Australia, continue to struggle in this start of 2018: after dropping 18% in January, February sales are down another 11% to 582 units, bringing the year-tpo-date total down 14.9% to 1.246 registrations. Hyundai brilliantly takes the lead of the New Caledonian brands ranking thanks to sales surging 35% to 11.2% share, followed by Peugeot up an equally impressive 27% to 10.7%. The remainder of the Top 5 all drop heavily: Toyota (-40%), Ford (-23%) and Dacia (-30%), the latter remaining #1 YTD at 10.1% share thanks to a strong January score. Further down, Citroen (+84%), Land Rover (+240%), Subaru (+63%), Mitsubishi (+225%), Fiat (+43%) and Dodge (+50%) all impress. Model-wise, the Dacia Duster reclaims the lead it held over the FY2017 despite a 24% year-on-year drop and for just one unit above the Ford Ranger (-3%) while the Toyota Yaris (+175%) rounds up the podium and the Peugeot 3008 shoots up 27 spots on January to #4 overall. The Hyundai Kona lands directly at #6 for its first month in market, distancing the Creta at #6 and the i10 at #8. Notice also the Range Rover Evoque up to #11.
