The Peugeot 208 is now the best-selling vehicle in Denmark year-to-date.
After spending two of the past three months in positive, new car sales in Denmark are back in hell in October at -17.9% year-on-year to 15.072 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down -18.1% to 157.229. Brand leader Volkswagen (-29.4%) is hit even harder while Peugeot (+0.6%) edges up at #2 and Toyota (-15.8%) ensures the podium remains in the same order vs. last month, YTD and in 2019. BMW (+13.8%), Mercedes (+11.6%), Hyundai (+7.2%) and Kia (+1%) stand out with year-on-year gains in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Citroen (-55.9%) implodes.
Model-wise, the Peugeot 208 (+0.8%) just manages to keep its volume in positive vs. a year ago and as a result topples the Citroen C3 (-74.4%) from the YTD pole position. Below the Toyota Yaris (-14.7%), the Peugeot 2008 (+41.1%) and Opel Corsa (+73.4%) both post fantastic scores, as do the Renault Captur (+312.2%) and Kia Niro (+100.7%) just below. The VW ID.3 sinks from 5th place last month to a much more modest #26, still remaining the best-selling new launch just above the Skoda Kamiq (#28).
