Germany September 2010

This year the German market is taking a hit due to the phasing out of the scrappage scheme. September is at -18% vs. 09 (259,748 sales) and the market is at -27% over the first 9 months of the year.

No surprise, the VW Golf leads the pack as it has for the last 30 years or so in the country. After a lukewarm summer its market share shoots up again to reach 8.9% thanks to 23,205 units sold (the Golf Plus and Jetta are included in this figure).

#2 most of this year, the VW Polo drops one spot behind the Mercedes C Class which delivers September’s best performance at 3% of the market and 7,912 sales. It’s a very strong month for Mercedes which places 2 more models in the Top 10: The E Class is 5th, followed by the A Class, both with 2.3% market share.

Full ranking table and more commentaries below.

Good performance for the Opel Astra in 4th, recuperating after a dismal August score (13th). The Astra is now 3rd in the year-to-date ranking, passing the VW Passat which lodges another weak month (8th), waiting for the new generation to take the relay.

Not counting Skoda, owned by VW (the Fabia is 10th and the Octavia 15th), the best selling foreign model is extremely low in the rankings this month: the Hyundai i30 is only 30th with 2,343 sales and 0.9% of the market.
