Belgium August 2020: BMW (+41.8%) and Peugeot (+12.2%) top charts, ignore reeling market (-24.1%)

BMW is the best-selling brand in Belgium for the third time in 2020.

In line with other European markets we have covered so far, the Belgian new car market significantly worsens in August at -24.1% year-on-year to just 36.387 registrations compared to -1.3% in July, meaning the YTD tally is now down -26.3% to 297.524. BMW (+41.8%) goes completely against the grain with a surreal year-on-year gain and spectacularly takes the lead of the brands ranking for the third time this year after January and April. BMW ranks #2 so far in 2020 vs. #5 over the Full Year 2019. Peugeot (+12.2%) also defies the freefalling market to snap the August 2nd spot and advances to #3 YTD. Mercedes (-27.4%) leaps up 3 spots on July to #3, sidestepping Volkswagen (-39.8%) which endures the steepest fall in the Top 7. Volvo (+7%) and Skoda (+4%) are the only additional gainers in the remainder of the Top 20 while further down Bentley (+125%), Lotus (+75%), Ferrari (+66.7%), Porsche (+65.4%), Ssangyong (+42.6%) and Tesla (+15.4%) stand out. Polestar is up one spot to #33 with 77 sales.
