Car Sales Switzerland: 2011


Switzerland had a good year in car sales, you have to go back to 1990 to find a higher number of units sold - according to my records. VW took top spot off Opel in 1999, and has not relinquished it since. In fact daylight now comes second and I don't think Vee Dubs are that good. The Passat is apparently sleep inducing, it's that bland. Even the female model (in the picture below standing next to one) seems to be asking do they really want her there? ;-)

1 VW 40,600 12.7%
2 Audi 18,500 5.8%
3 Ford 18,400 5.8%
4 Renault 18,300 5.7%
5 BMW 17,600 5.5%
6 Skoda 17,500 5.5%
7 Opel 16,000 5.0%

33 Lancia 850 0.3%
34 Jaguar 460 0.1%
35 Ssangyong 450 0.1%
Others 1,980 0.6%
Total 318,950 8.4% increase.

Nothing very dramatic happened in the market in 2011. Winners were VW (+20%), Skoda (+21.4%), Hyundai (+59.6%), Nissan (+20%) and Volvo (+21.6%). Some of the vanquished were Fiat (-11.3%), Subaru (-13%) and Honda (-17.2%).

My guess: Probably another strong year about to unfold.

Statistics: auto-schweiz.
