The VW Tiguan is the best-selling vehicle in Switzerland in July.
The Swiss new car market slips -19.4% year-on-year in July to just 15,656 sales, keeping in mind July 2021 was already down -14.2% on the year prior. The year-to-date tally now stands at 125,256, down -13% over the same period in 2021. Volkswagen (-9.8%) slices the market drop in two to cement its domination at 13.3% share vs. 10.4% YTD. Mercedes (-18.5%), Skoda (-14.5%) and Audi (-13.7%) beat the market and are all up two spots to #2, #3 and #4 respectively, all overtaking BMW (-35.4%) and Tesla (+321.1%) down to #28 for the month vs. #2 in June. There are no year-on-year gainers inside the Top 10, with Dacia (-3.4%) and Hyundai (-7.9%) resisting best. Below and in order of sales, Kia (+17.3%), Cupra (+218.1%), Citroen (+21.3%), Alfa Romeo (+31.1%), Genesis (+161.1%), and DS (+58.3%) stand out.
Over in the models ranking, the VW Tiguan (+5.1%) is up 12 spots on June to sign its 2nd monthly win of the year after last February. Confirming the Swiss market is one of the most fragmented in the world, 2.1% share is enough for the Tiguan to take the lead. It distances the Skoda Octavia (-18.2%) back to #1 YTD, the VW T-Roc (+15.5%) up 8 ranks on last month to #3 and the VW Golf (-3.8%) up 6 to #4. This means the entire Top 4 is composed of VW Group models. The Mercedes GLC (+41.5%) scores by far the largest year-on-year uptick in the Top 10 and is up 10 spots on June to #5. The Volvo XC60 (-2.9%), up 47 ranks on last month, Dacia Duster (-3.2%) and Skoda Karoq (-5.1%) resist in the remainder of the Top 10. Just outside, the Cupra Formentor (+98.3%), Skoda Enyaq (+65.9%) and Peugeot 308 (+284.5%) all impress.
