BMW sales surge 67% year-on-year in Belgium in July.
Whereas neighbours France (+3.9%) and Luxembourg (+14.9%) have returned to positive, new car sales in Belgium can’t quite get there just yet with July volumes down -1.3% year-on-year to 44.532 units. The year-to-date tally is now down -26.6% to 261.137. As it has been the case in most European markets we have covered so far, Volkswagen (-7.9%) trails the Belgian market but remains in the brands lead at 10.4% share with Renault (+12.6%) strong in 2nd place like last month. BMW (+67%) posts the largest gain in the Top 20 and rallies back up two spots on June to #3, toppling Peugeot (-12.9%). Dacia (+63.7%), Ford (+40%) and to a lesser extent Skoda (+14.7%) also impress in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Mercedes (-38.3%) is hit full frontal. Large gains are a lot sparser further down, with Subaru (+122.2%), Porsche (+118.4%), Kia (+24.1%), Ferrari (+23.1%) and Ssangyong (+21.5%) standing out.
