The Dacia Jogger hits its highest ranking in the world in Ireland this month.
The Irish new car market accelerates its fall in June to -22.1% and 2,153 units vs. -10.4% in May. This leads to a year-to-date tally up 2.1% to 65,174. Hyundai (+217.7%) hits a whopping 27.5% share, by far its highest ever and to be compared with 14.1% over H1 where it ranks #2. Renault (+766.7%) is even more impressive with 12.1% share vs. 3.6% so far this year while Dacia (+695%) keeps on aligning tremendous results in most European markets, climbs up to a record 5th place with 7.4% share vs. 2.6% year-to-date. In third place, Toyota (-22.1%) matches the market but is far below its YTD level at 10.6% vs. 17.3%, by far keeping the YTD lead. Volkswagen (-72.8%) is in complete freefall at #4. Mercedes (+43.5%) is the only additional gainer in the Top 10.
Over in the models ranking, the Hyundai Tucson (+466.7%) roars to a barely believable 25.3% market share and of course cements its YTD leadership with 7.1% units. The Renault Arkana is up 126 ranks on May to land at a record #2, the nameplate’s highest ever ranking in the world. The Dacia Jogger is up 23 spots on last month to also claim a best-ever third place, also its highest anywhere including Romania (#5). The Renault Kadjar (+7400%) is up 128 ranks to #4, the Renault Clio (+2550%) us up 138 to #7 and the Dacia Sandero (+291.7%) up to #9. Notice also the Skoda Kamiq (+125%) up to #11 and the MG5 (+122.2%) up to #21.
