ASEAN Pick Up Truck Sales : 2017 (By Model)

The Colorado was the smallest selling model listed below
but had the largest percentage increase

Below are pick up truck sales of six models. For this exercise, small pick up commercial vehicles based on small vans are not included. Here we just look at the larger pick up, which often have SUVs baded on them.

Asean nations are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia,  Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. About 650 million people are encompassed within this grouping and roughly 3,150,000 vehicles were sold.

Overall sales were up nearly 5% up on 2016 so this sort of vehicle was ahead of the regional total. The one exception below was the Hilux, which was nearly caught by the Isuzu D-Max. The Ford Ranger is the most popular car in New Zealand and sells well in other mature markets and was third here, with a healthy 26% increase.



17 Brand/Model 2017 +/-


1 Toyota Hilux 157,000 -9%


2 Isuzu D-Max 149,300 11%


3 Ford Ranger 77,500 26%


4 Mitsubishi Triton 38,800 27%


5 Nissan Navara 36,800 15%


6 Chevrolet Colorado 21,400 36%

Range Rover Evoque Sales By Nation : 2017


The Evoque was one of the few times that an amazing concept made it into reality. Thanks to that boldness, well not really, rather common sense a really nice design made it onto the roads. Why car makers think we want insipid, dull as dishwater designs beats me. JLR understand style and elegance and deliver cars like that. To me a car should look good too.

Often cars with amazing styling don't sell strongly for too long. They date quickly. The Evoque has held up well throughout its life cycle, indicating it also had a classic look as well. The fact that it has continued to sell so strongly in Italy - a country where folk are known to appreciate the aesthetic - is testament to that.

The UK is the most popular place for the Evoque. China also has a strong following of the model, while the US prefers larger sized vehicles. Italy and Spain are well represented on the sales chart.

The China figure s for cars made there only. If any Evoques are imported, they are not included in that figure. All of the data is sourced from numerous places and nothing was provided by land Rover. Below the colours represent Asia (salmon), Europe (aqua), Americas (dark blue) and Africa/Middle East (green).

Land Rover Discovery Sport Sales By Nation : 2017

Here's a Discovery Sport at Land Rover Sante Fe 

The Discovery Sport is the one model in the range that would suit me. Not too large in external dimensions yet more than adequate room inside. It is made in the UK, China, Brazil and assembled in India. Over 300,000 have been made in the three years of its existence, bearing the first year production was being ramped up.

The figure below is for cars made in China. If any Disco Sports are imported, they are not included in that figure. However, looking at the 'Others' total at the base of the chart would indicate few were brought in. A few countries have commercial vehicle sales that would encompass the odd DS. Austria's sales seem to include the Discovery. The Czech Republic always has a sizable unknown quantity. This sort of thing affects the figures slightly but overall the numbers are sound.

All of the data is sourced from numerous places and nothing was provided by Jaguar itself. Below the colours represent Asia (salmon), Europe (aqua), Americas (dark blue) and Africa/Middle East (green).
