Ireland April 2019: New Corolla, Camry lift Toyota up 192.4% to #1 in first market uptick this year

The new Toyota Camry already knocks at the Irish Top 20’s door.

New car sales in Ireland score their first year-on-year gain of the year with April deliveries up a sturdy 10.7% to 8.913, leading to a year-to-date tally down -8.5% to 73.030. Toyota (+192.4%) spectacularly multiplies its April 2018 volume by 3 and easily overtakes Volkswagen (-10.5%) for the brands pole position just as Nissan (+127.7%) also posts a stunning gain to step up 3 spots on March to #3. Only BMW (+14.1%) also manages to outpace the market in the Top 10, with Kia (-45.2%), Hyundai (-17.4%) and Skoda (-11.3%) the hardest hit. Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla (+1062.3%) remains at #1 and is now #3 YTD, while the Nissan Qashqai (+407.5%) reclaims the #1 YTD spot off the Hyundai Tucson (-0.5%). The Hyundai Kona (+75.7%) and Ford Fiesta (+198.9%) complete a Top 4 in fantastic shape and we welcome the Toyota Camry directly at #21.
