Netherlands November 2022: Toyota repeats at #1, Yaris Cross signs first win
The Toyota Yaris Cross is the best-selling vehicle in the Netherlands in November.
New car sales in the Netherlands edge up 2.1% year-on-year in November to 27,810 units, a poor result given November 2021 was down -17.5% on the year prior. The year-to-date tally stands at 281.383 sales, off -2% over the same period in 2021. In the brands ranking, after topping the charts for the first time in 13 years last month, Toyota (+35.2%) delivers the largest gain in the Top 10 and repeats at #1 with 10.7% share. It distances last year’s leader Volkswagen (+8.4%) at 9.9% of the market vs. 8.1% YTD. Notice a very rare occurrence: Toyota and Volkswagen have sold exactly the same amount after 11 months and rank equal #2. In the lead year-to-date, Kia (-21.9%) crashes down to #3 this month, distancing Peugeot (+1.7%) up three spots on October to #4 and Renault (-6.6%) down one to #5. Audi (+33.9%) posts the biggest improvement in the remainder of the Top 10, with Volvo (+11.7%) and BMW (+1.1%) up but Skoda (-29.9%) and Hyundai (-22.7%) in a rut.
Model-wise, the Toyota Yaris Cross (+85.6%) signs its very first monthly win with 3.3% share and almost 200 sales more than the #2. It advances to #6 year-to-date as a result. The Peugeot 208 (+9.6%) is back up four ranks on last month to #2 and cements its YTD leadership where it gains a whopping 70% on the first 11 months of 2021. The Volvo XC40 (+37.6%) stays in third place with a tremendous year-on-year evolution, but not as good as the Opel Corsa (+49.8%) at #4. The Lynk & Co 01 (-5.4%) is back inside the Top 5 despite a negative year-ago comparison, with the Toyota Aygo X confirming its success in this market at #6. The Peugeot 2008 (+29.4%) is the only additional gainer in the Top 10, just as the Kia Niro (-48%) and Skoda Enyaq (-47.3%) both implode. Below the Aygo X, the next most popular recent launches are the VW Taigo (#18), Toyota Corolla Cross (#29), Dacia Jogger (#34) and Renault Megane E-Tech (#39).
