Greece September 2020: Peugeot 208 leads market up 20.5%
The Peugeot 208 is the best-selling vehicle in Greece in September.
New car sales in Greece surge 20.5% year-on-year in September to 7.107 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down -35.3% to 60.046 units. Toyota (-5%) easily keeps the lead of the brands ranking with 12.4% share while Peugeot (+123.2%) more than doubles its year-ago volume to reclaim the 2nd spot it holds YTD. Volkswagen (+9%) also returns to its YTD position at #3 while both Opel (+11.1%) and Mercedes (+34%) are up 3 spots on last month to #4 and #5 respectively. Despite surging 125.4% year-on-year, Renault drops 8 ranks on August to #10. Suzuki (+55.8%) also outpaces the market at #7.
Over in the models ranking, the Peugeot 208 (+106.5%) flies off to pole position, and interestingly this is not thanks to the BEV variant which only accounts for 7% of its September volume. The Opel Corsa (+16.6%) is up 5 spots to #2 while the YTD leader, the Toyota Yaris (-53.1%) seems to be suffering from its generation changeover and drops to #3 but remains by far the most popular model in Greece so far in 2020 with almost double the sales of the #2, the Peugeot 208. The Toyota C-HR (+109.2%) soars 10 spots on last month to #4, the Peugeot 2008 (+422%) is up 13 to #6, the Renault Clio (+142.5%) is way up year-on-year but drops 6 ranks on last month to #7 just as the Toyota Aygo (+45.3%) also beats the market in the remainder of the Top 10.
