Switzerland Automotive Sales Data & Trends


Here you will find annual car sales figures for Switzerland. These statistics are Total Market Volumes, which include passenger cars as well as light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

Since the late 1990s, the Swiss car market has fluctuated between 250.000 and 400.000 annual sales, and has been relatively stable since 2011. The market recovered from a low of under 290.000 sales in 2009 to a peak of over 350.000 sales 6 years later. Switzerland was the only country in Europe to lose volume in both 2016 and 2017 and the market declined again in 2018, marking three consecutive years of losses, despite continued growth of light commercial vehicle sales. The losing streak was broken in 2019 with a 4,2% growth. LCV sales typically make up 8% of total car sales in Switzerland, but their share has increased to over 9% since 2012 and surpassed 10% in 2018.
