Toyota (-10.2%) is the only Top 4 carmaker in negative and sees its market share thaw from 41.2% over Q1 2019 to 36.5% this year. In contrast, Lexus (+31%) is up 3 spots to #2 and 9% share, Hyundai (+22.8%) is up one to #3 and 8.8% and Nissan (+14.9%) is down one to #4 and 8.6% despite evolving one percentage point of share above its 2019 level. Kia (+56.4%), MG (+47.3%), Mitsubishi (+41.5%) and Isuzu (+26.6%) also post fantastic gains in the remainder of the Top 10.
