The VW ID.5 is up to 2nd place overall in Denmark this month.
9,828 new cars hit Danish roads in July, that’s a ghastly -38% year-on-year fall. It brings the year-to-date volume down an equally heavy -33.7% to 83,318 units. Volkswagen (-2.5%) is almost stable and reclaims the top spot off Toyota (-36%) to hold 14.8% of the market vs. 10.5% so far this year. Below Toyota in 2nd place, Skoda (-5.5%) and Mercedes (-12.6%) also resist well in the current context, while Ford (+3.1%) actually posts a year-on-year gain, the only in the Top 17. Kia (-24.8%), Audi (-33.5%) and Hyundai (-36.1%) are all in freefall yet beat the market, unlike Peugeot (-47.4%) and BMW (-51.2%). Outside the Top 10, Cupra (+215.4%) is above Seat (-62.5%) for the 7th consecutive month.
Model-wise, the Toyota Aygo X easily repeats at #1 with 3.8% share, climbing to #9 year-to-date. It has ranked on the podium for the last three months which is the extent of its career so far. The surprise is the 2nd place of the new VW ID.5 up 24 spots on June to 2.5% share, and now #66 YTD. The Skoda Enyaq (+177%) and Ford Mustang Mach-E (+202.6%) post extravagant year-on-year gains to ensure there are 3 EVs in the Top 4. In fact the entire Top 7 defies the market with positive year-on-year evolutions: the VW T-Roc is up 50% to #5, the Renault Captur up 24.7% to #6 and the VW ID.4 up 52.3% to #7 vs. #43 YTD. The Peugeot 208 (+130.9%) also impresses at #9 but remains far from its YTD ranking of #2. The Toyota Yaris Cross repeats at #10, making it three recent launches in the Top 10.
