The Renault Captur is the best-selling vehicle in Portugal in June.
15,510 new passenger cars hit Portuguese roads in June, that’s a -18.1% year-on-year decline. Halfway through the year, the volume stands at 75,449 units, down -7.4% over the same period last year. Despite imploding -46.6%, Renault is up two spots on May to score its first pole position since last July with 11.2% share vs. 7.4% so far this year. Renault climbs from #6 to #2 in the YTD ladder as a result. Peugeot (+12.9%) drops to #2 but easily retains the YTD top spot with 11.5% of the market. As it has been the case in most European markets this month, Dacia (+236.8%) is easily the best performer in Portugal, up 10 spots on May to land at a record third place overall, less than 100 units from a monthly win. The French-Romanian brand seems unstoppable at the moment as customers reach for affordable and available vehicles in the current difficult economic context. Kia (+18.3%) and Mercedes (+13.5%) are the other Top 10 gainers.
Model-wise, the Renault Captur (-15.2%) is up 7 spots on May to lodge its first monthly win since April 2021 with 6.7% of the market. It is the only nameplate above 1,000 sales this month. The Peugeot 2008 (+77.3%) is up to #2 and scores the #1 YTD spot as a result. For the month it distances the Dacia Sandero (+249.5%) and Duster (+132.4%) both posting fantastic results. The Sandero is up 15 ranks on May and the Duster up 33. #1 last month, the Peugeot 208 (-8.6%) drops to #5 and distances the Fiat 500 (-62.1%) and BMW 1 Series (-34%) both struggling. Below, the Fiat Tipo (+532.5%), Nissan Qashqai (+337%), Citroen C3 Aircross (+218.2%) and Kia Stonic (+69.7%) all manage surreal year-on-year gains.
