France 2005: Scenic #1 in 1st Half, Clio takes the lead in full year

The best selling models followed a particular pattern in France this year: the first half was dominated by the Peugeot 206 (#1 in Jan, Feb & March) and the Renault Scenic, in the lead in April, May and June and #1 overall at the 6 months mark.

The Renault Clio then took the lead in August and never looked back (helped by the launch of the Clio III in September) even reaching an advance of 75% over the #2 in November and the #1 position for the whole year at 6.4%.

The 206 finished 2nd at 5.8% followed by the Scenic and Peugeot 307 both at 5.5%.  The Citroen C3, 5th, reached its best-ever share in May at 4.5%.

The Peugeot 407 is 7th for its first full year, reaching a best-ever 5th place and 4.2% share in May, and the Citroen C4, 8th, broke into the Top10 definitively in January, peaking out at 4.1% in February and #6 in October.

The ‘oddity’ of the year is the Renault Modus: after starting like a rocket in late 2004 it only delievered 2 months at #5 (Feb & June) before slipping out of the Top 10 from October onwards. It is 9th overall.

2005 is also the year the Dacia Logan was launched in France, reaching an outstanding 14th place in November with 2,725 sales (1.6%).

Note: 2005 is the only year where sales of Clio II & III are not differentiated.
