Car Sales Greece: 2010



To say that Greece is in big economic trouble is like saying the pope is a Catholic. Car sales in 2010 were about half of what they have been through most of the previous decade. There is no improvement in sight either.

Toyota retained its top spot without bother from VW. Citroen, Renault and Chevrolet all moved up the rankings with haste, while German premium marque's sales fell precipitously. Perhaps luxury isn't a good look at the moment in Greece.

In the chart below, italicised figures at the end of each line indicates a drop in market share. Now for the top 20:

Rank-Brand-Sales-Share-Inc/Dec
1 Toyota 16,716 11.8 -20.4
2 Opel 13,003 9.2 -24.6
3 VW 12,936 9.1 -31.0
4 Ford 10,165 7.2 -34.7
5 Hyundai 9,432 6.7 -21.8
6 Fiat 9,246 6.5 -18.6
