Tesla is back on the Hong Kong podium for the 2nd time in the past 3 months.
The Hong Kong new car market logically retracts -18.5% year-on-year in November to 3.100 registrations as social movements in the territory continue to cripple dealership activity. The year-to-date tally is now down -9.1% to 35.007 units. Toyota (-24.5%) easily remains the most popular carmaker in the country at 28.6% share vs. 32.1% year-to-date, despite falling faster than the market. Mercedes (+9.3%) defies the market with a sturdy gain keeping it at #2 overall while Tesla (+4375%) takes full advantage of Model 3 deliveries to climb two spots on October to #3 with 11.5% of the Hong Kong market for the month, crossing the 1.000 unit mark year-to-date for a 3.1% share at #7. Lexus (-46.8%), BMW (-44.3%), Audi (-43%), Nissan (-37%) and Honda (-32.8%) are hit the hardest in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Suzuki (+117.2%) more than doubles its sales to #9. Below, McLaren (+400%), Rolls Royce (+300%), Alfa Romeo (+200%) and Volvo (+25%) post the only other year-on-year gains in market.
