New light vehicle sales in Turkey are up 132.4% year-on-year in April to 61.488 units. This ends three consecutive months of all-time record results but still marks the highest April volume since 2018 (71.216). The year-to-date tally is now up 72.4% year-on-year to 260.148. Fiat (+131.7%) almost exactly matches the market growth to easily retain the brands top spot at 14.2% share. Volkswagen (+175.4%) is ahead of the market and cements its 2nd place at 11.6% share vs. 10.9% so far this year. Renault (+114.7%) is a little shy in third place, distancing Ford (+134.2%), Toyota (+2968.9%) up on a devastated April 2020 score, Hyundai (+274.9%), Dacia (+297.1%) and Honda (+488.8%) all outpacing the market. Peugeot (-38.2%) is actually down year-on-year at #9 as it led the market outright a year ago, while Citroen (+46.1%) also underperforms. Further down, Skoda (+602.9%), Kia (+493%), Nissan (+306.7%), BMW (+261.7%) and Mitsubishi (+243.8%) stand out. We have three newcomers in this month’s brands ranking: Cupra (#29), MG (#32) and DFSK (#42) short for Dongfeng Sokon.
Over in the models ranking, the Fiat Egea (+178.7%) and Toyota Corolla (+4224%) remain the best-sellers overall, followed this time by the Renault Megane (+355.7%) and Clio (+41.9%). The Ford Transit/Tourneo Courier (+743.4%) rounds out the Top 5 above the VW Passat (+134.8%) and Honda Civic (+561.1%). The Dacia Duster (+462.6%) remains at #8 and breaks into the year-to-date Top 10 as a result, while the Hyundai i20 is up five spots on March to land at #9. Notice also strong results by the VW T-Roc (+376.9%) at #16, VW Transporter at #17, Opel Crossland at #18 and the Skoda Kamiq breaking into the Turkish Top 25 for the first time at #22.
