Consult 15 years worth of New Caledonian Historical Data here

New car sales rally back up 8.1% to 8.550 units in New Caledonia, a small French overseas territory located north-east of Australia. Sales for New Caledonia are counted separate to metropolitan France and allow for the sale of Chinese brands such as Great Wall and Chery, as safety and pollution laws are less stringent here. Ford remains the most popular manufacturer despite sales down 4% to 10.6%, ending the year just 13 sales above Dacia up 5% to 10.5% share. Toyota (+20%) overtakes Peugeot (+8%) to snap the last spot on the podium while Citroen (+23%) passes Renault (+8%) to round up the Top 5. Mitsubishi (+82%), Mazda (+55%), Volkswagen (+49%), Fiat (+48%), Dodge (+31%) and Hyundai (+26%) also post spectacular gains inside the Top 20. Model-wise, the Dacia Duster is the best-seller for the 2nd year in a row but sees its market share thaw to 5.7% as sales edge up 1%. The Ford Ranger (+5%) and Toyota Hilux (+6%) make it two pickups on the podium like last year with a Top 6 unchanged on 2016 with the Ford Fiesta (-23%), Peugeot 208 (+5%) and Isuzu D-Max (+1%). The Citroen C3 shoots up 352% and 33 spots to #7 thanks to the new generation while the Hyundai Creta (+206%) ends its first full year in market at #9. The Dacia Sandero (+12%) and Nissan Navara (+17%) also beat the market in the remainder of the Top 10. Finally, notice the RAM 1500 breaking into the Top 30 thanks to deliveries up 31%.

* See the Top 30 brands and models by clicking on the title *

New car sales in New Caledonia, an overseas French territory located north east of Australia, are up a slim 1.5% year-on-year in October to 677 registrations, meaning the year-to-date volume remains frankly in positive at +10.9% to 7.186 units. Brand-wise, Toyota leaps up two spots on last month to snap the pole position thanks to deliveries up 26% to 12.9% share. Citroen does even better, surging up 89% to 10.6% in 2nd place vs. 8% and #5 so far in 2017. Dacia (-3%) and Ford (-34%) lose ground but Renault (+17%) and Peugeot (+4%), #1 in September, improve. Notice the two main French carmakers ranking at a low #5 and #6 in New Caledonia this month. Being located on the other side of the world certainly has a negative effect on brand loyalty. Nissan (+12%), Mitsubishi (+525%!), Volkswagen (+29%), Chevrolet (+120%) and Dodge (+33%) also shine. In the models ranking, the Dacia Duster reclaims the top spot it holds YTD with sales edging up 5% despite the imminent arrival of the new generation (pictured above), distancing the Toyota Hilux (-3%) and Citroen C3, up 27-fold on the previous model a year ago. The Nissan Navara (+73%), Toyota Yaris (+300%), Suzuki Swift (+260%), Renault Trafic (+260%) and Citroen C1 (+143%) also make themselves noticed.
