The Audi Q3 is the best-selling vehicle in Switzerland for the 2nd month running.

Note the data section of this article includes complete October figures.

In November, new car sales in Switzerland manage to contain their loss to -5.7% at 22.846 units, meaning this is the first single-digit drop of the year after 10 straight months of double-digit falls. The year-to-date tally is now down -25% to 207.377. This month the market performance is helped by very strong sales of alternatively-fuelled vehicles: HEV sales are up +81.6% to 4.017 and 17.6% share vs. 9.1% a year ago, BEV is up 181% to 2.200 and 9.6% share vs. 3.2% and PHEV is up 291.2% to 1.874 and 8.2% vs. 2%.

In the brands ranking, Volkswagen (+3.9%) goes against the market evolution with the only year-on-year uptick on the podium and is followed by Mercedes (-20.1%) and BMW (-9.4%) both in difficulty. Audi (+20.8%),  Toyota (+14.3%) and Volvo (+5.2%) sign the only additional gains in the Top 10 just as Skoda (-21.6%), Ford (-20.2%) and Renault (-18.9%) struggle. Below, DS (+200%), Ferrari (+188.9%), Peugeot (+169.8%), Citroen (+102%), Jaguar (+62.1%), Opel (+58.6%), Tesla (+39.9%), Mini (+28.4%) and Bentley (+27.3%) impress.

Model-wise, in October the Audi Q3 scored its first ever win in Switzerland above the Skoda Karoq at a record #2. The Q3 (+158.6%) brilliantly repeats at #1 in November with 2.6% share, distancing the VW Tiguan (+3.1%) and Golf (-21.6%). The BMW X1 (+60.7%) and Fiat 500 (+53.1%) also post fantastic gains to close the Top 5, while the Toyota Yaris (+92.5%) and Tesla Model 3 (+54.1%) shine in the remainder of the Top 10. The Mercedes GLB tops recent launches at #36 above the VW ID.3 down 10 spots on October to #43 and the Ford Puma down 20 to #46.
