BMW is once again the best-selling carmaker in Belgium.
It’s a race to the bottom for the Belgian new car market, down another -11.9% year-on-year in February while February 2021 was already down -21.9% on the year prior. The year-to-date volume is now off -10.9% to 66,148 on a 2021 volume already down -24.7% on 2020. BMW (-23.3%) is the most popular carmaker in the country for the 9th time in the past 12 months despite falling almost twice as fast as the market. Mercedes (+16.7%) advances to 2nd place ahead of Volkswagen (-13.7%) which however remains at a paltry 5th position year-to-date. Peugeot (-27.6%) was the leader last month but falls to #4 in February, still ranking #2 year-to-date. Audi (+43.6%) and Toyota (+43.1%) also shine in the remainder of the Top 10 while Renault (+16%) also posts a solid gain and Volvo (+5.5%) is up to #8. Kia (-5.5%) is down but gains share year-on-year and Citroen (-39%) freefalls. Below, notice Polestar (+190.6%), Cupra (+161.9%), Tesla (+70.4%), Mini (+27.3%) and Dacia (+13.3%) all sporting very satisfying lifts.
