Hong Kong (China) August 2019: Nissan and Kia resist in market down -16.2%

Nissan is the only Top 10 carmaker in positive in Hong Kong in August.

The Hong Kong new light vehicle market is starting to feel the effects of the protests affecting the territory, enduring a double-digit year-on-year drop for the first time in 2019 at -16.2% to 3.257 registrations. Brand leader Toyota (-9.8%) resists the best on top with a 34% share, distancing Mercedes (-16.4%) at 12.4%, BMW (-18.4%) at 10.6% and Honda (-36.1%) at 9.5%, all in freefall. In contrast, Nissan (+0.7%) is the only Top 10 carmaker to manage a (meagre) uptick, with Kia (-0.9%) also resisting fantastically. Just outside the Top 10, Suzuki (+220%), Hyundai (+170%) and Subaru (+87.5%) impress, as do Mitsubishi (+57.1%), Citroen (+866.7%), Lamborghini (+266.7%) and Infiniti (+216.7%) further down.
