Ireland October 2020: VW ID.3 repeats at #1, sales up 5.4%

The VW ID.3 is the most popular vehicle in Ireland for the 2nd month running. Picture completecar.ie

As the year comes to an end, new car sales in Ireland dwindle to a trickle as a bi-annual license plate system encourages buyers to wait until January to get a 21 licence plate that will start with the car forever. As a result volumes from October onwards are particularly low. Irish new car sales however manage a second consecutive year-on-year gain at +5.4% to 2.297 units. The year-to-date tally remains frankly in negative at -25.2% to 86.815.

In the brands ranking, Volkswagen (+4.3%) is the only carmaker in positive on the podium, followed by struggling Toyota (-40.2%) and Hyundai (-18.5%). On the other hand Kia (+103.5%), Peugeot (+51.4%), Renault (+25.7%) and Skoda (-17.3%) all stun with fantastic gains. Model-wise, the VW ID.3 takes advantage of the slow month to repeat at #1 and only needed 94 sales to do so. It distances the Hyundai Tucson (+42.2%), Skoda Octavia (+30.2%) and Kodiaq (+8.5%). Below the VW Tiguan (-12.9%), the Kia Niro (+253.3%), Sportage (+152.4%) and Dacia Duster (+117.9%) all more than double their sales year-on-year.

Previous month: Ireland September 2020: VW ID.3 scores instant win in market up 66.3%

One year ago: Ireland October 2019: Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Kona top market up 29.2%
