New car sales in Taiwan are up 3.2% year-on-year in March to 39.260 units, lifting the year-to-date volume up 6% to 114.161 registrations. Toyota unsurprisingly remains the most popular carmaker here but freefalls 18% to 21.2% share vs. 24.1% so far this year. Mitsubishi/CMC evolves like the market at +3% to 12% share in 2nd place, while Honda soars 29% to remains at #3 and now also ranks at that level YTD, overtaking Nissan/Infiniti (-11% this month). Lexus is by far the best performer in market this month wth sales up a stunning 127% on March 20178 to rank #7 with 5.1% share. Mazda (+36%) and Mercedes (+18%) also shine. Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla (-23%) and RAV4 (-28%) are on top like YTD and despite very steep drops, while the CMC Veryca is up 3 spots on February and 3% year-on-year in third place. The Honda CR-V (+103%) continues to evolve well above the previous generation a year ago, while the Toyota Sienta (+23%) rounds up the Top 5. But it’s the Lexus NX (+579%) that takes all the honours this month, up 12 spots on last month to reach an all-time record 7th place, its 2nd ever incursion into the Taiwanese monthly Top 10 after the #10 it hit back in February 2015.
