European car sales analysis March 2018 – models

Nissan_Qashqai-facelift-2017After looking at the March 2018 car brand sales in Europe, let’s look at individual model sales. After having its long-time streak on top of the ranking broken exactly one year ago when the Ford Fiesta briefly finished in the top spot, the Volkswagen Golf seems stronger than ever with a lead over over 14.000 sales over its closest rival as it’s the fastest growing nameplate in the top-15. Traditionally strong in March due to its sales leadership in the UK market, the Fiesta is back up into second place ahead of the Renault Clio but not with the kind of margin we’re used to, especially considering the little Ford is still brand new and the Clio is starting to age. In fourth place we find the Nissan Qashqai as Europe’s best selling crossover ahead of the Volkswagen Tiguan in 7th place and the Renault Captur in 10th place. Despite having an all-new generation in showrooms, the Volkswagen Polo is still struggling to gain traction after the previous generation had a strong finish to its life cycle. Mercedes-Benz-A-Class-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeThe Polo does manage to outsell the Peugeot 208 for only the second time in the last six months. The Ford Focus returns to the top-8 for the first time since last September despite being in the final stages of its life cycle. The Opel/Vauxhall Corsa is hit by a triple whammy of an aging design, reduced rental fleet deliveries under the new owner PSA and a depressed UK market, resulting in a 29,4% year-on-year loss, the latter two reasons are also valid for the Astra in 19th place, down 36,3%. The Skoda Octavia is out of the top-10 for the first time in 12 months while the Citroën C3 records its first year-on-year loss since September 2016 when the new generation was launched. The Ford Kuga (#15) outsells the Peugeot 3008 (#16) for the first time since last September, helped by its stronger sales in the UK. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class (#23) outsells its rival Audi A3 (#24) for only the second time in five years, after last December.

The Dacia Duster (#27) has now outsold the Opel/Vauxhall Mokka (#28) for the sixth consecutive month and the Ford Ecosport continues to improve (#43) while the Nissan Juke (#54) is aging quickly among all these fresher models. The Nissan Micra enters the top-40 for the first time in over 10 years time. The BMW 3-series (#41) is down 29,4% as it’s due to be replaced soon. The Toyota C-HR (#47) appears to have peaked as sales are stabilizing with a small loss of 2,5% in March.

Jaguar_E_Pace-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeBest selling newcomer is the Volkswagen T-Roc (#39), taking over from the Citroën C3 Aircross at #53, which only enjoyed one month in that position. Its sibling Opel/Vauxhall Crossland X is at #59, followed by the larger Grandland X (#72) and the siblings Skoda Karoq (#75) and Seat Arona (#77).  The Jeep Compass is the final newcomer in the top-100 at #93, while the Kia Stonic (#107) and its sibling Hyundai Kona (#113) drop out of the top-100. Further down we find the Range Rover Velar (#138), Jaguar E-Pace (#144), Volvo XC40 (#160), Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross (#166) and BMW X2 (#168), making the 14 best selling newcomers all crossovers. The first sedan newcomer is the Volkswagen Arteon at #179. The DS7 Crossback almost hits 1.000 sales for the first time at #229,

    1. Why so epic? VAG is the by far leading european car group in this segment, the Arteon will grow up even more.

      1. Maybee because of comments like this at it’s introduction?

        From Autonews:

        “Assembly of the new Renault Talisman began in September 2015 at Renault’s factory in Douai, France. Output is expected to peak at more than 53,000 units this year, according to IHS Automotive.”

      2. @Martin C . Talisman sales were 34k in 2016 in Europe (+58k in S. Korea) maybe with a engine like a 2.000 diesel they would reach those numbers in Europe but the Arteon is a new car from the best generalista european car brand so that’s quite normal, i don’t see why is so epic.

      3. I agree Bryan. I don’t see what’s so “epic” about the Arteon beating the Talisman ??

  1. Btw, the Talisman and the Espace need a restyling and the 2.0 dCi which is one of the most powerful and reliable engines in its category but this two models are not for volume but for profit and they are not even present in UK/Ireland so they won’t never sell too much. Also the new Koleos is absorbing potential customers of this two models so would not shock me if they were discontinued but i hope not because mainly the Espace is such a unique model in the market with its technology, futuristic styling, 4Control, confort, etc..

    1. My sources tell me that Renault has been preparing for production of new engines, which will be able to pass new WLTP cycle testing. This is the reason for somewhat lower overall production of currently available engines. The production should stabilize until end of this year. Also, all their models except Koleos have been in sales for at least 2 years, and in my opinion the sales will raise with new models starting from new Clio.

      As for sales of Talisman and Espace, it’s such a shame to see them sell in so few numbers. I think they should have never went to sale without 2.0 dCi engines. They are getting new 1.7 dCi and 2.0 dCi engines before end of the year but I don’t think it will improve their sales. It will only stabilize them at this level, since current models have been in production for a few years already. Also Talisman interior quality is not such a high level, which should have been improved before releasing the model. Renault wanted people to forget Laguna 3 with releasing Talisman, but now I don’t really know what they will do as Talisman hasn’t been able to make some very good impressions. As for Espace, it will be best if it becomes an SUV like 5008, otherwise it’s over with it. Koleos comes with only two diesel engines, which is also affecting it’s sales. The stronger one, 2.0 dCi 175 will be exchanged for a new diesel one at the beginning of 2019. I don’t know if a gasoline engine is planned for it.

      1. Thank you very much for your information, i don’t really understand what was the reason to not launch a 2.000 diesel engine on the Talisman and the Espace, the 2.0 dCi or even the 2.3 dCi would fit perfectly on these fantastic cars as these engines are known for their power ane reliability.

  2. The drop of both Talisman and Espace sales continued in April.

    Some consolation: The S.Korean Talisman – SM6 – means the model reached 5k in total.
    Another consolation: Global Koleos (QM6) sales was over 10k in April.

    For the out-of-favor Espace – great looks- there isn’t foreign aid. He/she is on his/her own.

    1. I’ve read that the Espace will be launched in China real soon maybe when/if receives the restyling. The Espace was launched in 2013 and wasn’t received yet any update. Taking into account all these factors (lack of markets, lack of engines, lack updates) these two models are selling well imho. Renault just needs to update them.

      1. Renault simply couldn’t meet the pollution requirements with 2.0 dCi. 2.3 dCi engine is available in Talisman in some Middle East countries, but it would be even more difficult to prepare it for EU market. One of the things 2 new diesel engines will use is AdBlue, which has been used widely by other manufacturers. I don’t understand why they haven’t started using it before.
        New engines will be more expensive than current ones(some maybe even more than 1000 euros) and the real CO2 emissions will surprise everyone, since they are really much higher than previous ones. The WLTP test will show true data.

      2. @Nikola – Thank you very much for those informations, i had no idea that the 2.3 dCi was avaible in Talisman is some markets, thank you, best regards.

      3. @Bryan After some checking, it seems I have made a mistake about 2.3 dCi. It’s not available in Talisman, at least I cannot find such information on the internet. It must have been some other car, not Renault. In fact, there is no diesel engine in Talisman in Middle East countries. There are only petrol engines, but also 2.0 petrol. Koleos has 2.5L engine in Saudi Arabia. Maybe there was a diesel at the beginning of sales but not anymore. Sorry for my mistake.

    2. Both Talisman and Koleos are selling well in middle east funny enough. I’m not sure Renault really targeted Europe with those 2 cars to be honest. However, they would have sold more it they had better engine range. And Espace is on sale in China but you don’t get numbers since it is imported( same as Capture).
      I predict both Talisman and Espace will be dragged for quite a while until we get a new Kadjar/Koleos range. Espace will probably morph into new Koleos 7 seater, maybe chance to build something more premium(?) and Talisman I predict will be gone, unless they will see a point doing something for Korea/ Middle east and they will bring it to us.

  3. Unheard of support for the Renault-Nissan Alliance:

    In April combined sales of Logan & Sandero was 72.000 units. Mind boggling!
    This total means top 5 in the Global sales ranking.

    But I would be really pleased of the Talisman was more successful.
    But given the immense EU success of the 3008/5008 (and Tiguan) quite a number of former D sedan segment lease folks will have made a switch to lucious ‘high-heeled’ SUV’s.

  4. March sales show the on-going levelling of the European market. Crossovers/SUVs are taking more control of the popular (luxury) segments at the cost of existing models. Even the new Polo (-19,4%, ouch!) can’t do anything about it which is a big surprise, because just like big brother Golf VW’s B segment model has always been a corporate car, especially in Germany.
    .
    It’s a shame car brands don’t see the purpose of a simple 3 door hatchback (e.g. 208, Polo axed) or a compact station wagon (e.g. Ibiza ST axed) anymore, let alone an affordable convertible or coupe. In a way, customers are responsible for this. Apparently ‘we’ want to drive a crossover and don’t really care enough about the decrease within the car industry.

  5. Renault has 3 problems when it comes to segment D:
    – 3 models competing fot the same custromer: Talisman, Koleos, Espace -> combined they have sales about 6k a month, not bad at all. Other brands do not have such big variety of models (not talking about VW).
    – Limited range of sales (UK is known for loving seg. D ang Vans).
    – Limited engines range (1.8 barely introduced for only one version. No pertol engines @ Koleos. No strong diesel eigines). This is most likely connected with demand and production abilities. Renaulst has introduced to much new models in to short time.

    And in the end: segment D is collapsing. Almost every model loose ground.

    1. It all starts with the homemarket.

      The Golf in Germany, Fiesta in the UK, Panda in Italie, F-150 in the US, Prius/Aqua in Japan, Maruti Dzire in India etc

      Same applies to D and E segment cars. Traditionally the French have no (fin.) interest in this segment due to tax rules dating back at least half a century ago. Where Germany brands have a favorable and large home market, cars such as the 505, 605, 607, CX, XM, C6, 20/25/30,Vel Satis always had to start with a huge disadvantage. It also meant R&D costs couldn’t be recovered over a high volume such as Audi, Bimmer & Benz can. Good: Based on a Ghosn’s statement, the whole Laurens van den Acker range is profitable, from Kwid to Espace. Let’s hope so.

      1. THX a lot for an overview. I didn’t know that historical impact.

        I believe that even Espace is profitable. This is the advantage of CMF -> all common components.

      2. “Good: Based on a Ghosn’s statement, the whole Laurens van den Acker range is profitable, from Kwid to Espace. Let’s hope so.” That’s very good, just as I thought the Talisman/Espace models are for profit and not for volume, they are profitable even with such low sales numbers. Thank you very much.

      3. The question is if these are really “such lows sales numbers”. Espace has already about 65k units sold since it’s launch.

        It is far more then VelSatis thought 8 years of production, not mentioning Avantime for example.

        Renault often count Espace as seg. D crossover or even segment E. That way, sales for about 1000 units per month, with limited number of countries, are not bad at all!
