The VW T-Roc is getting closer to the YTD top spot.
After losing -18.1% a year ago in June 2022, the German new car market rallies back up 24.7% this month to 280,139 units. This means the H1 2023 tally is up 12.8% to 1,396,870. Volkswagen (+22.4%) slightly trails its home market but sports a solid 19% share vs. 18.6% year-to-date. Mercedes (+29.9%) stays in 2nd place above a soaring Audi (+42.5%) and a struggling BMW (-0.6%). Only Seat (+32.4%) and Kia (+26.6%) manage to beat the market in the remainder of the Top 10, with Ford (+14.2%), Hyundai (+13.6%) and Opel (+6.6%) weaker but still in positive. Below, Dacia (+44.9%), Tesla (+176.6%), Mazda (+90%), Volvo (+97.3%) and MG (+184%) impress.
Model-wise, the VW T-Roc (+14%) scores a third win in the past 4 months but remains in 2nd place year-to-date below the VW Golf (-10.4%) back up to 2nd place this month. The VW Tiguan (+46.2%) soars in third place but once again it’s the Tesla Model Y (+184.4%) that is the most dynamic atop the charts. The VW Passat (+44.8%) is also very solid while the VW ID.4 (+265.4%) manages its best ranking of the year at #6. The Mercedes C-Class (+97.7%) and Mini lineup (+47.2%) also shine in the remainder of the Top 10. The Renault Austral is the best-selling recent launch (< 12 months) at #77.
