Netherlands October 2010: Polo takes the lead

The Dutch car market is growing fast in 2010: +23% vs. 09 in October (43,920 registrations) and +24% vs. 09 over 10 months (434,604 registrations).

The VW Polo leads in the Netherlands: thanks to a phenomenal month of October at 2,751 sales and 6.3% market share, the Polo now tops the year-to-date ranking with 16,310 sales and 3.8%, passing the Peugeot 107.

One of the particularities of the Dutch market is the flat-out success of the “Kolin sisters”: the badge engineered Peugeot 107, Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo. Virtually the same car with different badges, produced in Kolin in Czech Republic. All 3 models are hits in the Netherlands: the Peugeot 107 is #2 year-to-date with 15,886 sales (3.7%), the Toyota Aygo is #3 at 14,154 sales (3.3%) and the Citroen C1 is #5 at 10,477 sales (2.4%). All in all, the Kolin sisters amount to a staggering 40,517 registrations over 10 months, or 9.3% of the Dutch market!

Very fragmented and therefore very volatile, the Dutch market always sees significant changes month after month in the model rankings. This month, the Skoda Fabia is very strong in 2nd with over 2,100 sales and close to 5% market share. The Fiat Punto, Seat Ibiza, Skoda Octavia and Toyota Auris are also featuring unusually high in the rankings. The Kia Sportage tops the 4WD rankings with 410 sales (27th overall) whereas the Alfa Romeo Giulietta starts well in 38th with 0.8%.
