Serbia Car/LCV Sales : 2018


This was the best year since 2011 with a 6% increase for 2018. It's a challenge to get data for this nation of the Balkan region but finally here it is. Green shows market gain and Škoda certainly managed that, taking back the top spot with authority. Fiat too did well, but not by enough to retain its top ranking.

Yellow is increase but with a reduced slice of the pie with Toyota notably in that category. Blue is down and Ford Excelled in that regard. The Blue Oval brand is working on improved profitability in Europe and that is probably the reason.

NZ Top 45 Models : 2018


Getting data for sales by model for NZ isn't easy. I managed to get a top 45 which includes light commercial vehicles as otherwise it would have been an even shorter list. Anyway, now for a few points of note.

Japan dominates here with 60% of the list total. Toyota in particular does well, thanks to having such a strong presence in the fleet market. The USA is next, thanks to both Ford and GM Holden both contributing. Ford has the incredibly popular Ranger pick up, classed as a light commercial. The Hilux was the most popular pick up for decades but yielded the top spot a few years back.

Europe make the chart thanks to a van (Ducato) and China with a pick up (T60). Europe does provide a few models here but not with logos from that region. The Qashqai, Commodore and Astra are of that ilk. Overall it is a country where cars with Japanese brand names are by far the most sought after.
