Greece May 2021: Peugeot and 208 take the lead, sales down -21.6% on two years ago

The Peugeot 208 is the best-selling vehicle in Greece in May.

New car sales in Greece bounce back up 141.3% year-on-year in May to 10.850 units, leading to a year-to-date tally up 57.1% to 44.487. Note May 2021 remains down -21.6% on two years ago in May 2019 (13.832) while the year-to-date volume is down -15.1% on the same period in 2019. This month Peugeot (+157.4%) takes the lead of the brands ranking with 11.5% share, edging past traditional leader Toyota (+69.8%) for just 8 units. Volkswagen (+152.5%) is up two spots on April to land on the third step of the podium and climbs to #4 year-to-date as a result. Kia (+568.9%), Fiat (+564.7%) and Hyundai (+299%) all post spectacular gains in the remainder of the Top 10 while Citroen (+168.1%) and BMW (+156.3%) are more measured but still outpace the market. Mazda (+612.5%), Jaguar (+425%), Volvo (+236.5%) and Renault (+220.7%) also get noticed further down.

The models ranking is completely reshuffled this month. The Peugeot 208 (+116.7%) is up two spots on April to take the overall lead with 4.4% share followed by the Opel Corsa (+114.4%) also up two to #2. The Toyota Aygo (+363.8%) surges 11 ranks to land at #3 ahead of the Citroen C3 (+390.7%) up one to #4. Still leader year-to-date, the Toyota Yaris (-1.6%) underperforms this month and falls to #5. Four or the five remaining Top 10 models vastly outrace the market: the Fiat Panda (+719%), Kia Stonic (+579.5%), Peugeot 2008 (+271.6%) and VW Polo (+213.5%) all score surreal gains, with only the Toyota C-HR (+65.1%) underperforming.
