Boosted by stock clearances ahead of the new WLTP emissions standard in effect on September 1, the Danish new car market soars 35.5% year-on-year in August to 20.740 registrations, lifting the year-to-date tally back into record heights at +2.4% to 157.974 units. Volkswagen surges 60% to 12.5% share vs. 14.1% YTD, distancing Peugeot (+55%), Renault (+37%) and Citroen (+80%) all outpacing the market.

The Nissan Qashqai (+239%) loads up on non WLTP-compliant sales and enjoys its third consecutive month in the Danish pole position but remains #2 YTD below the Peugeot 208 (+14%). The Citroen C3 (+180%) is #3 again ahead of the Toyota Yaris (-2%), Renault Clio (+28%) and Peugeot 308 (+460%). Other strong gainers include the VW Polo (+233%), Tiguan (+189%), Fiat 500 (+170%) and Audi A3 (+86%). The VW T-Roc (#20) leads recent launches above the Opel Grandland X (#48).
