Jeep is the only carmaker in the Top 15 to gain ground in November.
No respite for new vehicle sales in Argentina, down another devastating -35.2% year-on-year in November to 25.624 units, even though November 2018 was already down -44.9% on the previous year. The year-to-date volume is now -43.3% to 435.675, by far the lowest this decade. Volkswagen (-29.9%) and Toyota (-34%) manage losses just below the market rate and cement their market domination at 15.3% and 14.1% share respectively. It’s a much tougher moth for Renault (-53.8%) and Chevrolet (-50.3%) both losing over half their November 2018 volume. Jeep (+8.6%) clearly stands out in the Top 15 as the only gainer at #10, with Scania (-12.9%), Nissan (-15.1%) and Peugeot (-23%) managing the slimmest losses. Further down, Ram (+104.8%), Agrale (+100%), Foton (+25%), Mini (+22.2%) and Volvo (+4.9%) are among the rare carmakers in positive.
Over in the models ranking, the Toyota Hilux (-8.8%) and VW Gol (-1.9%) resist particularly well to rank #1 and #2 with 6% and 3.7% share respectively while the Ford Ka (-28.2%) rounds up the podium. The VW Amarok (+2.7%) repeats at #4, its highest ranking in 3.5 years and is the only nameplate in positive in the Top 20 alongside the Fiat Toro (+18.7%) at #18. The VW T-Cross advances two spots on October to #21 and easily leads new launches above the Honda WR-V (#81) and DS 3 Crossback (#118). The Fiat Mobi (+2.8%), Jeep Compass (+24.8%), Nissan Versa (+57.8%), Citroen C4 Cactus (+30.7%), Citroen Jumpy (+517.6%) and VW Tiguan (+1.5%) are the only additional Top 50 nameplates gaining ground year-on-year.
