Spain February 2011: Ibiza #1, Focus & Polo strong

Ford Focus

Difficult times for Spanish car sales, down again in February at -28% and 66,120 registrations. The Seat Ibiza keeps the pole position but drops to 3.8% share at 2,539 sales. A very volatile market sees the Ford Focus jump up 9 spots to #2 at 2,233 sales and 3.4% (concessions are starting to receive the new generation), and the VW Polo gain 13 spots to #3 with 2,166 sales and 3.3%.

The Nissan Qashqai drops to 4th and the VW Golf stays 5th. The Citroen C4, helped by the new gen, is back in the Top 10, whereas the BMW 1 Series delivers a brilliant 14th place and the Fiat Punto is in very good shape at #15.

    In Spain Ford sells the old Focus yet.

      Hi Pedro,
      Thanks very much for this info. I realise the new Focus’ official launch in Europe is in March 2011, however the sudden surge of sales for the Focus in Spain in February looks to me like it is due to deliveries of the new generation into dealerships. Sales figures are traditionally sales to dealerships, not to end consumers so this is a typical pattern. I may be wrong, but it looks like the most logical explanation for this Feb figure, along possibly with strong price cuts on the old model. It would be interesting to know whether Ford has run any promos on the old gen Focus in February in Spain?
      cheers
      Matt
