Brazil mid-January 2011: Gol at 10%, Kombi at its best in 6 months

The very first 2011 figures come from Brazil, thanks to Fenavabre’s bi-monthly updates. Brazilian car sales are up 16% at 114,015 registrations halfway through January, and the VW Gol is off to a great start just under 10% share at 11,262 sales, way above the Fiat Uno (7.5%) and VW Fox (4.9%).

Let’s take advantage of this relatively uneventful ranking to salute the performance of the 60 year-old VW Kombi. Launched in 1950 and built in Brazil since 1957, it is probably the longest running model still in production in the world, and it is #34 this month with 771 sales, its best position in 6 months. This is better than cars like the VW Golf, Honda CR-V or Mitsubishi Pajero!
