January 21, 2011 Leave a comment

In spite of a good month of December at +9% (14,086 sales), Algerian car sales are down 3% in 2010 with 216,862 registrations. The Renault Symbol is the best selling car in Algeria again this year at 21,411 sales, just under 10% share, ahead of the Dacia Logan at 14,024 sales (6.5%).

Hyundai delivered a fantastic year, topped off with an out-of-this-world 34% share in December. Interestingly this is due to relatively old models: the Atos goes from #7 in 2009 to #3 this year at 12,037 sales (5.6%) and the Accent (old gen + Era) is #5 with 10,202 sales, including 2,174 in December: a 15% market share!

Very strong month of September in Algeria at 17,686 registrations (+45% over 2009), whereas the year-to-date score is 171,207 sales, still down 8% over 2009.

The 2010 year-to-date model ranking sees the Renault Symbol grow 19% over last year to reach a very impressive 10.4% market share and stay #1 with 17,733 registrations. Also growing, the Dacia Logan is #2 with 12,384 registrations, including 1,304 MCV versions.

Following in the ranking, two old Hyundai models see their sales increase significantly over 2009: the 2003 Hyundai Atos grows 13% to 7,822 sales and 4.6% market share, and the 2000 Hyundai Accent (two generations ago) grows 10% to 6,889 registrations. An interesting trend that shows how Hyundai adapts its range to maximise sales in African markets.

Two French models follow: the Peugeot 207 is 5th with 6,835 units sold (+3%) and the Renault Clio III is 6th with 6,616 registrations (+32%).
