SsangYong

SsangYong-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeSsangYong sales and market share in Europe have steadily declined from its peak in 2006 to 2013, as the South-Korean SUV-maker has been bought out of bankruptcy-protection by Indian automaker Mahindra in 2011.

The brand’s only year-over-year increase was in 2011 thanks to the introduction of the new generation Korando in 2010, which became the brand’s best selling car. The midsized SUV is a competitor to the Kia Sportage and Hyundai ix35, but a low brand recognition and small dealer network leave the model lagging far behind in sales.

Sales dropped sharply again in 2012 as the brand’s former best selling SUV Kyron was phased out and the Actyon SUV was discontinued. The Actyon Sports pick-up truck is still available, but this body-style is, in contrary to the United States, not very popular at all in Europe.

In 2013, SsangYong sales remained relatively stable, thanks to increased sales of the brand’s largest two vehicles, the Rexton SUV and the Rodius MPV. The Rexton was revised in 2012 with a restyled front-end and the Rodius is all-new for 2013, losing the dorm-window styling of the outgoing model. The MPV is available in Europe in a 7-seater, 3-row configuration with an enormous boot, as opposed to 4 rows seating up to 11 in other continents. Thanks to its roomy interior, the Rodius is mostly popular among taxi companies, as they don’t really mind the awkward styling of the car.

Sales rebounded sharply in 2014 and 2015 as the brand continued to build its dealer network and advertising in Europe, while the two new models kept their sales momentum. But the biggest contributor to the success was the SsangYong Tivoli small crossover, launched in Europe’s hottest segment of small crossovers with the Tivoli in 2015, which was followed by a stretched version called XLV in 2016.
