Switzerland 6 months 2010: Golf and Octavia clear leaders

The Swiss car market is handling well in 2010 with +7% over the 1st half of the year and 143,046 registrations.

Not surprisingly, the VW Golf is by far the best-selling model in the country, but its market share (4.2%) is much weaker than in Germany (8.2%) and Austria (5.2%). And contrary to those two countries, the Skoda Octavia grabs the second spot at 2.6%, ahead of the VW Polo at 1.9%. The Swiss market is indeed the most fragmented in Europe (and perhaps the world) with only two models above 2% market share.

Other strong performers are the new gen Opel Astra (6th), Seat Ibiza (10th), Renault Megane (11th), BMW X1 (21st), Dacia Sandero (26th but 16th in Quarter 2) and the Mercedes E Class (12th in Q2).
