The Fiat 500 is the best-selling vehicle in Greece in June.
New car sales in Greece dive -20.1% year-on-year in June to 11,091 registrations, bringing the year-to-date tally down -6.1% to 54,798. In the brands ranking, Toyota (+44.7%) goes completely against the market with a fantastic year-on-year uptick leading the brand to 17.6% share vs. 15.3% so far this year. Hyundai (-11.6%) is far from performing as well but also gains share year-on-year, reaching 10.2% of the market vs. 9.5% over H1. Fiat (+58.2%) shoots up four spots on May to land on the third step of the podium with 8.3% share vs. 4.6% so far this year. Mercedes (+36.1%) and Dacia (+34.1%) are the other spectacular gainers in the Top 10 with all other carmakers losing significant even more ground than the market: Peugeot is at -58.4%, Opel at -45.1%, Kia at -40.5%, Nissan at -29.2% and Volkswagen at -28%.
Model-wise, the Fiat 500 (+290.1%) lurches 16 spots on last month to snap the overall pole position with a stellar 7.1% share vs. 2.7% and #7 over H1. This is the first time the Fiat 500 tops the Greek charts as it usually ranks between the 20th and 40th place. A large rental company order should be at the root of this immediate success. The Toyota Yaris (+39.5%) is also in outstanding shape at #2 and 6.3% of the market and easily holds onto the year-to-date lead with 5.7% share. The Hyundai i20 (+108.5%) more than doubles its sales year-on-year and lifts two spots on last month to #3. The Toyota Yaris Cross rallies back up eight ranks on May to #4 vs. #8 over H1, continuing to be the most popular new launch in the country. The Toyota C-HR (+4.7%) is up 10 spots on last month to #5 and now ranks #2 year-to-date, displacing a freefalling Citroen C3 (-66.8%) dawn to #33 for the month. All other Top 10 models drop year-on-year with the Dacia Duster (-4.9%) resisting best and up 14 ranks to #9. Notice also the new Toyota Aygo X up 9 spots to #11.
