Samoa corresponds to the western part of the Samoan Islands, the Eastern part being American Samoa. It is home to 192.342 inhabitants, with the two main islands being Upolu hosting the capital city Apia and the Faleolo International Airport, and Savai’i, one of the biggest islands in Polynesia.
New car sales in Samoa are up 4.6% year-on-year in 2017 to 389 units and are once again dominated by Toyota but the Japanese carmaker drop 2% to 38.6% share vs. 41.1% a year ago whereas Ford (+4%) and most strikingly Hyundai (+28%) both gain volume on 2016. These three manufacturers account for 98.2% of the Samoan market, with Chevrolet and Mitsubishi sharing the rest.
