BMW has led the Belgian charts 6 times over the past 12 months.
The Belgian new car market bounces back up 56.1% year-on-year in March to 44.966 units as year-ago volumes were hit (-47.5%) by the coronavirus lockdown. The year-to-date tally is now down -7.8% to 117.438. BMW (+88.4%) vastly outperforms the market to threepeat at #1 this month and remains unbeaten this year. BMW has now led the Belgian brands charts 6 times out of the past 12 months and has a 2.000+ sales lead over Volkswagen (+32.2%) so far this year. Peugeot (+100.3%) exactly doubles its sales year-on-year but drops one spot on February to #3 overall, distancing Mercedes (+67.8%) and Audi (+61.2%) both eclipsing the market growth. Opel (+107.4%), Volvo (+90.8%) and Skoda (+68.2%) are in the same boat, but Renault (+38.5%) and Citroen (+35.5%) are left behind. Spectacular gains are rarer outside the Top 10 and include Polestar (+7700%), MG (+475%), Smart (+360%), Jeep (+167.1%), Ssangyong (+106.7%) and Porsche (+100.7%).
