Opel scores the best hold among the Top 10 brands at -28%.
30/06 update: Now with Top 10 models.
New car sales in Luxembourg rally back in May as the country is progressively reopening after a COVID-19 lockdown with sales down -43.8% to 3.041 leading to a year-to-date tally down -37.7% to 16.145. Although still ghastly, the drop isn’t as dramatic as in April (-78.9%) or March (-50.2%). Volkswagen (-43.6%) almost exactly matches the market decline at 11.6% share ahead of BMW (-47%), Audi (-48.7%) and Mercedes (-51.1%) all falling faster and therefore losing share year-on-year. Opel (-28%) and Skoda (-28.6%) post the best holds in the Top 10, with Volvo (-36.9%) and Ford (-38.9%) also resisting relatively well, but Renault (-63.8%) and Peugeot (-46.8%) are still struggling. Further down, Toyota (+10.9%) scores the only year-on-year gain in the Top 20, with Tesla (+95.2%), Mitsubishi (+25%) and DS (+12.9%) also in positive below. Model-wise, the VW Golf (-23.8%) tops the charts above the Audi Q3 (-42.1%), BMW 3 Series (-10.4%), Mercedes GLC (-21.1%) and A-Class (-59.7%).
