New car sales in Hong Kong are counted separately from Mainland China, and in 2018 they drop 7.3% to 34.585. Toyota (+10.2%) easily cements its brands leadership, going against the grain to post a splendid double-digit uptick and improving its share by almost four percentage points from 19.4% in 2017 to 23.1% this year. #2 Mercedes (+8.1%) also markedly improves on 2017 to 16.5% share but BMW (-15.5%) is in difficulty at #3, still managing an outstanding 11.3% share. Nissan (+33.7%), Honda (+20.5%) and Lexus (+16.9%) post the largest gains in the Top 10 while further down McLaren (+104.8%), Renault (+83.3%), Rolls Royce (+34.5%), Infiniti (+32.2%), Subaru (+22.8%), Mitsubishi (+18.2%) and Volvo (+16%) all score fantastic gains. At the other end of the scale, Tesla (-96.8%) falls into oblivion from #4 in 2017 to #24 this year, as the capping on the tax waiver for electric vehicles was substantially lowered in 2017.
