Car Sales By Brand Belgium: 1975


Looking over the data below form 1975, then comparing the 2012 list of brands to the right highlights the changes over that time. Ford and GM have slipped down the rankings, as have Japanese makes apart from Nissan. Simca, BLMC, DAF, Chrysler UK and Autobianchi are no more with Lada selling just 26 cars in 2012. Land Rover and MINI are what is left of BL.

Both VW and the PSA makes have done well in this time, as have the three German premium brands, the latter reflective of increased wealth. Two brands from Korea are now making a mark in Europe and Chevrolet is new. Things are always changing.
