The Toyota Aygo X is the best-selling vehicle in Denmark in October.
The Danish new car market continues its freefall at -14.3% year-on-year in October to 10,852 units. This is the 8th double-digit fall in the past 9 months and down a ghastly -40.9% on pre-pandemic October 2019. The year-to-date volume is now down -21.4% over the same period in 2021 to 119,937 sales. Strikingly, the Top 4 brands go completely against the market and all lodge double-digit gains, they also remain in the same order as last month. Volkswagen (+37.9%) is in the lead once again with 13.6% share vs. 11.1% so far this year. It is followed by Toyota (+21.6%) up to 10.4% share vs. 9.2% YTD, Mercedes (+14%) at 8.8% share vs. 7.8% YTD and Audi (+37.6%) at 8.6% share vs. 5.5% so far this year. Skoda (+6.2%) is also up in 5th place whereas Peugeot (-49.4%), Kia (-40.1%) and Ford (-31.1%) all implode. Volvo (-2.4%) rounds out the Top 10 and Cupra (+253.8%) remains above sister brand Seat (+8.9%).
Over in the models ranking, the new Toyota Aygo X is the overall best-seller for the third time in the past 5 months and advances to #4 year-to-date as a result. The VW T-Cross (+149.5%) is up a whopping 43 spots on September to land in 2nd place overall, a new record for the nameplate (previous best #5 in July 2019). Toyota also places the Yaris (+68.2%) and Yaris Cross (+356.4%) inside the October Top 4.
