Car Sales Spain: 2010


Spain had a very poor year in 2009 for car sales and 2010 was not good either. Both years are well down on usual and 2011 will be another bad one. Sorry for the gloomy report.

On the positive side, Seat became the number one brand, something it hasn't achieved for this century at least. VW leaped four places to second, while Renault fell from 1st to 4th, Citroen 2nd to 5th and Ford 3rd to 6th. Further down, Dacia climbed five places and Suzuki dropped four.

In the chart below, italicised figures at the end of each line indicates a drop in market share. Now for the top 30:
