Germany Sales : 2021 (Jan-Apr)










Registrations for April were +90% and +8% YTD. The '+/-' column below is comparing market share variance for four months of 2021 with a full 2020. VW did very well extending its lead over Mercedes-Benz. Opel had a strong start to the year, led by the Corsa. Again, Cupra is just the Formentor model. Renault and SEAT can't decide if they are 8th or 9th.

Switzerland Sales : 2021 (Jan-Apr)

A funny place to eat your fish 'n chips











Registrations for April were +135% and +21% YTD. To find out the winners in the share stakes, the '+/-' column below is comparing market share variance for four months of 2021 with a full 2020. In that context, Mercedes-Benz did very well, gaining 27% in registrations and a 7% improvement in its share. 

Of the others, Toyota, Opel and Land Rover pushed on nicely, but Renault, Dacia and Tesla have work to do. The Cupra brand is a new one, separate from its parent SEAT. It is combined I the official data but I have separated the Formentor model and counted that model only.

Denmark Sales : 2021 (Jan-Apr)

Caution: Always watch where you are going

Registrations for April were +52% and +1% YTD. Looking at the data, the '+/-' column below is comparing market share variance for four months of 2021 with a full 2020. 

VW maintains its lead without a problem, although a slightly reduced margin. BMW has taken a giant leap for Munich up to 4th from 10th. Clearly no stock shortage with this company. Renault did its usual sales fall and Tesla did its usual impression of a cork in a choppy sea, all over the place. JLR is a tiny operation here yet managed to shrink that still further in a most effective manner.
