Polestar is the 36th best-selling carmaker in Belgium in February.
The Belgian new car market drops -6.3% year-on-year in February to 46.775 registrations, tilting the year-to-date tally into negative territory at -2.3% to 98.615 units. Volkswagen (-11.7%) reclaims the brands pole position ahead of Renault (-23.8%) and Peugeot (-20.9%) but the entire podium under-performs. The next best-selling four brands however post stunning gains, with Toyota (+53%) the most impressive ahead of Citroen (+18.2%), Mercedes (+7%) and BMW (+4.6%). Audi (+23%) also impresses further down the Top 10. Below, DS (+83.2%), Ssangyong (+71.2%), Porsche (+53.3%), Bentley (+42.9%), Jaguar (+19.1%), Tesla (+16%), Seat (+13.8%) and Skoda (+11.9%) stand out. A handful of newcomers make themselves noticed: MG shoots up 15 spots on January to #34 with 25 sales, Dongfeng Sokon sells one unit (#51) while Volvo’s premium marque Polestar, after a fleeting appearance at home in Sweden (1 unit in January), lands for good in Belgium with 12 registrations of the 1 coupe in February – most probably test cars allocated to the Volvo Gent factory.
