European car sales analysis April 2018 – models

European-auto-sales-statistics-2018-AprilAfter looking at the April 2018 car brand sales in Europe, let’s look at individual model sales. The Volkswagen Golf remains unbeatable and is as usual followed by three subcompacts, with the Renault Clio as its closest rival for the fifth time in seven months, just ahead of the new Volkswagen Polo and the new Ford Fiesta, both of which outperform the Clio in terms of year-over-year growth. In fact, the Fiesta is the best performer in the top-10 with a growth rate of almost a third on its slowest April in decades, just as the new generation was arriving in showrooms. The Volkswagen Tiguan is the best selling crossover again as the Nissan Qashqai suffers from a fallback after its excellent performance in March. Seat_Ibiza-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeThe Peugeot 208 and Dacia Sandero make it five subcompacts in the top-7, followed by the subcompact crossover Renault Captur. The Ford Focus manages to improve by more than 21% despite being in the last few months before its redesign and outsells the Skoda Octavia, while the Opel/Vauxhall Astra is still far behind with a loss of 28,1%. The Opel/Vauxhall Corsa is almost outsold by the Toyota Yaris, with the Citroën C3 trailing not far behind as well. The Peugeot 2008 (#16) manages to outsell the all-new Dacia Duster (#19) for the second month in a row after three months behind its French-Romanian rival. The Volkswagen T-Roc is closing in on these two, moving up to 26th place and ahead of the Toyota C-HR (#32) for the second month in a row. The Seat Ibiza just can’t seem to force a breakthrough despite being all new. It’s stuck in 35th place with stable sales while the Skoda Fabia is in 18th place with 37% more sales than its Spanish sibling despite being much older and sitting on the same platform.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC continues its strong performance as it holds on to 38th place and best selling luxury SUV. The Volkswagen Touran remains the best selling MPV in 45th place, just ahead of the Renault Scenic in 47th place. The Peugeot 5008 (#62) is back ahead of the Skoda Kodiaq (#70) after a one-month hiatus. The Mazda CX-5 has a strong month with a 78,5% increase into 84th place. Other strong performers are the Suzuki Swift, almost doubling up into #109, the new generation Nissan Leaf gaining 155% to #118 and best selling EV for the second month running, with the Renault Zoe up “just” 50% to #140. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio follows up on its record month with a third-best ever month, setting it back above the Range Rover Velar again (#157).

Jaguar_I_Pace-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeBest selling newcomer is the aforementioned VW T-Roc for the second month in a row, in 26th place, followed by the Citroën C3 Aircross up to #46 and the Seat Arona, up to #54 which puts it ahead of the Opel/Vauxhall Crossland X at #55. The Skoda Karoq moves up to 60h place, while the Jeep Compass (#72) moves past the Opel/Vauxhall Grandland X (down 6 places to #78). The Kia Stonic (#96) and its sibling Hyundai Kona (#100) re-enter the top-100 with the Volvo XC40 up 40 places to #120 which puts it ahead of the Jaguar E-Pace (#136). The BMW X2 is up to #149, while the first non-crossover newcomer is still the Volkswagen Arteon at #164. We welcome the Jaguar I-Pace to the ranking with its first 76 sales at #300.

    1. They are both profitable. It’s preferable to sell 1500 cars with good profit, than 6000 at a loss.

      1. @bazooka – that is not public but according to Carlos Ghosn who has always been very sensitive to profit margins, the whole Laurens van den Acker range is profitable, from Kwid to Espace.

      2. you can’t show any proof… so your theories are just funny… typical Renault fanatic who lives in his own so unreal world…

      3. Output in 2016 was estimated to 53.000 cars according to Renault. The real salesnumbers are way lower than that. It must be a disappointment for Renault. They properly drew the wrong conclusion on the aftermath of the VW dieselscandal, that buyers would flok to other brands, but as it has turned out, the buyers floks at the VW dealerships.

      4. @bazooka Can you show proof that they’re unprofitable? Or are you one of those ” can’t show any proof… theories are just funny… typical Renault basher who lives in his own so unreal world ” type of person?

      5. @bazooka – the only fanatic with complexes is that you, you were the fist to mention Renault.

      6. @Martin R- “Output in 2016 was estimated to 53.000 cars according to Renault. The real salesnumbers are way lower than that.” That’s false, you forget that the Talisman sells well in Middle East, and only in Europe the Talisman sold almost 40k cars, so the numbers, at least in 2016, were very close to the expectations.

  1. * 3/5008 #4!
    Even more than brand new Fiesta

    Duster and Sandero remain top sellers.
    In particular the ‘vintage’ Sandero at #7 increases every month / every year.

    BMW X1: -10%
    BMW 3: -21%
    BMW 1: -22%

  2. The Clio is better than ever, Renault should launch the new Clio V only in 2020 and not already in 2019 imho, the same with the Captur. The new Ibiza will grow up in the following months i guess, it’s a much better car but not as cheap as its predecessor. Great to see that the Seat Leon outsold the Astra.

    1. That’s nice for Seat, but compared with the Golf (and to a lesser extent Octavia) the position of the Leon is very questionable. Same platform, same engines, same materials et cetera, but not even close to its siblings. Only artificial tools (e.g. cheapest offer through (partly owned) leasing companies) can explain these differences VW uses keeping their cars quasi-dominant. Same goes for the Passat compared with the Superb. Other (non-)European brands aren’t able to challenge VW for multiple reasons with availability and higher pricing being the most important.
      .
      Recently Merkel stated “German law makers should not weaken the industry with introducing new laws concerning emissions standards”. Such ignorant statements show that at the end of the day Merkel only thinks about Germany making money and not about the health of the people and the environment in which we all live in. Even after the biggest automotive scandal in the history, she knows Germany controls the EU/EC and can get away with fraud. Ask VW. Ask Audi, Ask Porsche. They are being protected at the expense of others and can continue forcing their technologically rigged and outdated products onto the market.
      .
      In my opinion this vicious circle should be ended as soon as possible. Europeans like to think ‘we’ do everything better than other continents, but the VW Group emissions scandal has shown Europe needs others to correct them and has a long way to go to become the great (economically/socially/politically) diverse continent it could be.

      1. Losange’s as always blah, blah, blah… Why french cars fanatic fanboys always have some problems with german automakers (especially with VW Group)? Why these people are so full of complexes?

      2. Pretty relevant lay of the land, Losange.
        This blows the pathetic rant of a certain Bazooka out of the water.
        Have the impression this Baz is the same annoying person as the one infiltrating multiple other websites ….

    2. @Losange, the most polluting dieselcars are Renault……. Just to correct you. That was before and after that VW caught.

      1. @bazooka……Really? You, being the person only trash talking Renault on this beautiful website are asking this question? Go see a shrink.

        @Martin C……You keep mixing up Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission standards and are still in full denial of VW Group knowingly committing fraud companywide. You do know they admitted to this? You do know Audi developed the cheating software back in 1999? You do know VW managers/engineers are in jail? You do know thousands of innocent VW employees were fired?
        .
        Investigators stating other car brands have diesel cars with higher pollution are stating the obvious, because, and this is the important part so you should write it down and repeat it a zillion times, they are comparing Euro 6 (!) emission standards with emissions produced during outdated lab tests. A six year old kid can think of this, but not you.
        .
        When all things were equalised (the famous legal loophole, for example NEDC tests allowing cars to be lowered in weight), VW Group couldn’t meet Euro 5 (!) emission standards and manipulated software BEFORE a car entered the lab tests. That’s illegal and that’s why they have paid billions of dollars in the States. But in teutonic orientated Europe, they are treated differently. Merkel saying her law makers should protect the industry by not introducing new laws concerning emissions shows the German car industry acts modern, but clearly it isn’t. Porsche stopped selling cars at this moment because of it. Laughable!
        .
        Fortunately high ranked German politicians are aware of this and don’t mind saying the common money/volume orientated German corporate culture has to change. Hopefully they can convince Merkel too otherwise she turns into the European Trump.

      2. @Losange, I’m sorry but it’s true. For both Euro 5 + 6:

        “Renault diesel cars emit the highest levels of toxic nitrogen oxides of all the big manufacturers and the French company’s recent models produce nine times the legal limit, tests have found.

        Volkswagen, which has paid £15 billion to settle cases in the US over cheating emissions tests, now produces the least-polluting cars, according to Which?, the consumer group.”

        Published in The Times March 22 2017, 12:01am.

      3. @Martin C – Just to correct you, Fiat and Opel/Vauxhall (they share the same engines) pollute more than Renault, according to various studies. BMW and Porsche also have had problems because of emissions in South Korea, so this affects the entire car industry, the european authorities must to be and will be more rigorous in the future.

  3. Quote from my message at 20:54h: “they are comparing Euro 6 (!) emission standards with emissions produced during outdated lab tests”

    I forgot to mention that the Euro 6 emission standards were measured during real world tests.

    1. Swedish tests shows Renault are the worst in 6.

      1. Just throw in a couple of links and people think they have made a point. Are you not able to think? You probably didn’t even read the complete investigation. The Which? article also states the following:
        .
        “Testing by government has consistently shown that vehicles meet the legal emissions limits. The method employed by Which? is very different from the current official EU test, so it’s no surprise it delivers different results”
        .
        This investigation is a clear example of an institute looking for a result for which they have used a preferable method. Scientifically speaking, it’s a highly unreliable research method.
        .
        To be clear, I don’t care about which brand performs better than others or vice versa. I don’t have anything to gain from it, because I don’t work in the automotive industry. I’m just fascinated by people generalising things just to support criminal behaviour. I hope you don’t drive a VW product, because at the end of the day, their customers are paying the price.

      2. I think it’s funny to read, how you ditch others for being “rude” against French carmakers. Two lines later you ditch the entire German carindustry, and finds that OK. Even ditching the buyers of the VW. That’s okay with you because it’s not a French company. When someone tells their honest opinion about “precious” you turn into a bull.

        And actually. Just to tease you, my wife will buy a T-Roc.

        However you try and turn the results, in real life tests, Renault and Fiat are the most polluting brands out there.

  4. @Martin C……it’s clear you are just as selective as the links you blindly copy without comprehensive reading.
    .
    All the best with your wife’s inferior Skoda Karoq.

    1. Losange. No matter how you twist and turn everything, when dieselcars are tested for pollution outside normal testing method, Fiat, Opel (PSA) and Renault are the worst. That was before the VW scandal and after. There’s just been a test published in March 2018. True. All manufactures meets the euro 6 and 5 norm after official meassurements, but real life tests, shows something else. Even with cheating device in the Renault cars.

      After testing, amongst other Renault Kadjar but found it lacking in interior quality like she did with the Talisman, she had actually narrowing it down to either a Ford Kuga Vignale or Nissan Qashqai.

      I actually got more news. Friends of ours are turning back their Renault Capture, as it has spent more time at the garage than with them. They’ve ordered a….. *drumroll* Volkswagen Tiguan.

      And now I’ll take an evening drive in my new Volvo XC40.

      1. According to a lot of reliability studies and ratings Renault is nowadays one of the most reliable car brands on the market and even the humble Dacia or Kia are more reliable than the top german brands, i like german brands but their reliabilty is very disappointing for their price. The emission problems are about the 1.6 160cv biturbo, that’s why Mercedes and Nissan have had better results as they also uses Renault engines. Renault and Nissan are developping a brand new 1.7 dCi to replace the 1.6 biturbo. Good luck with your T-Roc, i like that car such as the Captur but the T-Roc is much more expensive but more sophisticated.

      2. “The emission problems are about the 1.6 160cv biturbo, that’s why Mercedes and Nissan have had better results as they also uses Renault engines.” I forgot to mention that both Mercedes and Nissan don’t use the 1.6 160cv biturbo, that’s why they have had better results than Renault in the emission tests, and the new 1.7 dCi will replace it.

      3. Yesterday, Fleetcar UK stated all new diesel cars fail the current EU NOx emission standards.
        .
        You have to stop making false statements concerning cheating devices. That’s pure slander.
        .
        The methodologically questionable investigations you mentioned compare emissions measured during real world driving tests with emissions measured during lab tests and use current emission standards as a reference. Just like fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, NOx emissions in real life are different. That’s no surprise and this goes for all brands like I mentioned above. The issue you are still ignoring is the fact VW Group knowingly fixed their cars BEFORE they entered a lab test. Without cheating, VW wasn’t even able to reach the required lab (!) emission standards. Do you see the difference? Yes, all cars show different numbers in real life testing, but VW Group forced themselves to develop cheating software to pass a lab (!) test.
        .
        Recently, investigators discovered another scandal at Audi concerning their use of Adblue (lowers NOx emissions). The bigger diesel engines used by Porsche as well were able to shut off the Adblue-system while driving, but when they were tested in a lab the system worked just fine. This resulted into higher NOx emissions in real life. So again they cheated which they’ve already admitted. Perhaps they should’ve used more diesel exhaust inhaling monkeys for their lab testing?
        .
        You can generalise all you want. I’m not saying other brands are the cleanest of the bunch. The industry and the EU finally acknowledge the way cars are tested needs to be changed. Customer institutions like Which? should represent the needs of customers instead of trying to insult others. Automotive media are already controlled by the marketing departments of car companies. It’s up to the people and customers organisations to demand better products and fair treatment instead of blindly follow corrupt companies. Otherwise these companies will never change.
        .
        Finally, I don’t understand why you need to mention which car you and your wife are driving to make a point. French cars aren’t reliable? That’s so old and very weak. Then you should say the same about VW, because the new Polo has problems with the seat belt. Quality, right? So your friends are not happy with a Renault Captur. Who cares? That’s what I call N=1 reasoning which I expect from bazooka. All of us here probably know stories like that. I know people who are happy with their Italian/Japanese/Korean/German/French/British/Swedish cars and in the same way I know people who aren’t happy with all sorts of cars.

      4. Why did you buy the worst looking Volvo? New Volvos look great but why buy the only one that looks cheap inside and doesn’t look that good on the outside.

  5. @bazooka – “Why french cars fanatic fanboys always have some problems with german automakers (especially with VW Group)?” You are always the only one to try to bash French brands on here, you’re just hypocrite. You just can’t understand that profit is much more important than volumes. btw, i love the VW Group.

  6. Dont understand why german car fans bash renault or any french cars. If you want to bash properly by just mentioning “laguna”. Ruined the concept for 3 rd generation car. Even the latest looked 2000-ish and facelift looked like 05. The renault-samsung sm7 should have made it less painfull to watch.

    1. We have it, it looks better then Passat of same age. But the biggest thing is, it runs down all the german competition to the ground in reliability, it is the oldest car at home with biggest millage and it has the least problems of all 3 cars ( Clio IV and VW Up). More then 10 years of trouble free motoring, no idea what to buy since we don’t trust Talisman or Tiguan/Passat to be working flawlessly in 10 years.

      1. Hello Blaz, buy the new Renault Koleos II, it’s a Nissan X-Trail with more technology and sophistication, mechanically it’s a typical Japanese robust and reliable SUV. Best regards.
