Market down -20.2%, Peugeot 208 #1, VW T-Roc, Ford Puma, Kia Sportage break ranking records – Best Selling Cars Blog

Bernice


The Ford Puma is up to a record 4th place in Europe in April.

According to data by ACEA, the European new car market (EU+EFTA+UK) endures a -20.2% year-on-year loss in April to just 830,447 registrations as supply chain issues continue to complicate the environment. This is the 2nd lowest April volume since at least 1991, beaten only by the pandemic-plagued April 2020. Among the Top 5 markets, Italy (-33%) fares the worst, with France (-22.6%), Germany (-21.5%), the UK (-15.8%) and Spain (-12.1%) in tow. Iceland (+79.6%), Romania (+23.4%), Ireland (+10%), Croatia (+2.7%) and Sweden (+0.3%) brave the negative context with year-on-year upticks.

In the groups ranking, the VW Group (-28%) and Stellantis (-31%) both fall faster than the market as opposed to Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi (-13.2%) containing its loss somewhat. Hyundai-Kia (+13.2%) once again defies the negative context with a solid year-on-year uptick. It distances the BMW Group (-17.6%) and Toyota Group (-7.4%) both resisting relatively well. Daimler (-22.6%) loses some share year-on-year and we welcome back Jaguar Land Rover (-27.7%) inside the Top 10 at #10.

First European Top 10 finish for the Kia Sportage at #9.

Brand-wise, Volkswagen (-33%) is the most popular as usual, with Toyota (-6.1%) posting a 4th consecutive month at a record 2nd place overall. BMW (-14.7%) jumps up 2 spots on March to round out the podium ahead of Mercedes (-21.9%). At #5, Kia (+12.5%) scores its third ever European Top 5 finish after last September (#5) and January (#4). It distances Audi (-17.8%) and Peugeot (-34.9%). Hyundai (+14%) lodges the biggest year-on-year gain in the Top 10 and one of only two inside the 10 best-seller alongside sister brand Kia. Renault (-29%) evolves at lowest-ever rankings: #10 this month vs. #5 over the Full Year 2021. Dacia (+7.9%) is the only additional gainer in the Top 20 at #13. Below, notice MG (+219.1%), Honda (+29.5%) and DS (+17.7%) all in excellent shape.

Over in the models ranking, the Peugeot 208 (-15.1%) comforts the status of best-seller in Europe it holds year-to-date with a victory in April. The VW T-Roc (-18.5%) shoots up 14 spots on March to hit a record 2nd place overall (previous best: #4 in August 2019 and May 2021). The Dacia Sandero (-2.3%) is up two ranks on last month and holds onto the 2nd spot year-to-date. The Ford Puma (-4.9%) is up a further three spots to break its all-time ranking record for the 2nd consecutive month at #4. The Toyota Yaris (-28.3%), Fiat 500 (-24.2%) and Opel Corsa (-30.1%) follow and all lose more ground than the market. At #8, the Toyota Corolla (-4.3%) resists and scores its best position so far this year while the Kia Sportage (+53.5%) is lifted by the new generation to its first ever European Top 10 finish at #9 (previous best: #17 last month). Notice also the VW Golf (-43.4%) down to #14, the Renault Clio (-57.3%) down to #31 and the Peugeot 2008 (-61.6%) to #32.
