Greece July 2020: Peugeot 2008 (+103.3%) breaks nameplate ranking record in market down another -18.8%

The Peugeot 2008 is up to a record 6th place in Greece in July. Picture

Although it is much more contained compared to the past few months, the Greek new car market endures a 5th straight double-digit year-on-year decline in July at -18.8% to 9.516 units, pulling the year-to-date tally down -40.4% to 46.086. Toyota (-15.5%) easily tops the brands charts at 13% share, with Peugeot (+2%) the only gainer in the Top 10 at #2 and Volkswagen (-9.4%), Hyundai (-38.6%) and Opel (-11.2%) ensuring the Top 5 brands are identical to the YTD order. Skoda (-1.9%), Kia (-4%) and Mercedes (-9.5%) all hold well in the remainder of the Top 10 but Nissan (-34.7%) and Citroen (-20.1%) underperform. Further down, Mitsubishi (+209.1%), Porsche (+166.7%), Jeep (+146%), Alfa Romeo (+85.7%), Subaru (+75%), Mini (+48.3%), BMW (+27.9%), Lexus (+16.7%) and Land Rover (+14.8%) impress.

Model-wise, the Toyota Yaris (-20.9%) remains by far the most popular model in Greece with 7.1% share, selling more than double any other nameplate in the country starting with the Opel Corsa (+11.8%) and Peugeot 208 (+19.3%) both in outstanding shape on the remaining podium steps. The Peugeot 2008 (+103.3%) is up 30 spots on June to land at #6, a new Greek ranking record eclipsing the #8 it hit last April, just as the VW T-Roc (+80.7%) secures a 6th Top 10 finish over the past 10 months at #8. The Toyota C-HR (+7%) also bucks the negative trend to confirm it is now a long-term Top 10er in Greece. The VW T-Cross (+132.1%), Kia Stonic (+110.2%) and Mini Countryman (+108.6%) also impress just below while the Skoda Kamiq (#25) tops recent launches again, distancing the Ford Puma (#33), Mercedes GLB (#61) and Kia Xceed (#64).
