Suzuki leaps up 19% year-on-year and 11 spots on July to #1 with a fantastic 15.5% market share vs. 9.3% so far in 2018. It is followed by Fiat up 80% to 15.1% and Volkswagen down 16% to 12.3%. Renault (-23%) and Chevrolet (-22%) both implode to complete the Top 5.

Further down the ranking, Kia (+210%), Jeep (+90%), Toyota (+74%), Chana (+58%) and Mazda (+11%) are the rare carmakers standing out, while at the other end of the scale Chery (-97%), Geely (-94%), BYD (-84%), FAW (-77%), Mitsubishi (-62%), Ford (-60%), Honda (-56%), Mercedes (-47%), Dongfeng (-43%) and Subaru (-42%) all implode.
