Registrations for all the market in June were -10% (-23% for import brands) and the first six months of 2022 were -16% (imports -15%) compared to the corresponding period of 2021. The 'Diff' figure below compares six months of this year with the total 2021 share. 

Toyota, Daihatsu, Subaru and Lexus slipped slightly while Honda, Suzuki, Nissan, Mazda and Mitsubishi enjoyed an upward shift. Mercedes remains the strongest selling import brand, even outdoing local premium Lexus. The Tesla figure is an educated estimate.

Spain Sales : 2022 (Jan-Jun)










Registrations for June was a modest -8% and for the first six months of 2022 sales were only -10% on the corresponding period of 2021. The 'Diff' figure below compares six months of this year with the total 2021 share. 

Local brand SEAT was the best selling for the past two years but for now, at least, it has fallen back to sixth, with Toyota being comfortably ensconced at the top of the leaderboard. With no brand managing to get to double figure market share, the top places do tend to change often.

Belgium Sales : 2022 (Jan-Mar)










Registrations for June were -16% and for the first six months of 2022 were -15% on the corresponding period of 2021. The 'Diff' figure below compares three months of this year with the total 2021 share. 

BMW showed that 2021 was no fluke by continuing at number one for the 2022 YTD. After that it's tight with VW, Peugeot, Mercedes and Audi in close proximity. Toyota is looking as a potential disrupter as it presses toward the top placings.
