Germany: Top 100 Car Models Ranking 9 months 2013.

This report follows others we have recently introduced and called “Top 100”. It regards the largest car market and had covered USA, China France, UK, Italy, Canada and Europe.

German Top 100 Models Ranking is dominated – of course – by German made models. The first 26 models are made in Germany or are produced by brands owned by a German group, like Mini, Seat and Skoda. Only in others two countries in the World there is a similar domination, in Japan, by Japanese’s and in Korea, by Koreans. However, while in those cases domestic leadership is built over barriers for imported vehicles, in case of Germany the leadership has been achieved in a market fully opened at competition and is based on superior quality, technology and image.

Volkswagen led the list with Golf, first with 6.0% of share in 9 months, followed by Volkswagen Passat, with 2.5% of share. Others Volkswagen are in 4th, the Polo, in 6th, the Tiguan, and in 16th, the Touran.

BMW is third thanks to the last generation of the Series 3, ranked third with 2.4% of share, while the first Mercedes is the Class C in 8th place.

Considering the current position versus the full year 2012, the list of winners must start from the Audi A3, 5th from 19th. Then, new Mercedes Class A in 10Th was up 14 spots and Mercedes E Class was 13th from 20th.

Among the losers, we should call the Mercedes B Class, 15th from 7th, Opel Zafira, 44th from 25th and the Opel Insignia in 60th from 43rd.

Perhaps we should name also some imported vehicles. The first was the Hyundai i30, in 27th and imported by a neighboring country, being produced in Slovakia. The second imported in the list is Fiat 500. But this data include both the “classic” and the “L” models.

Now, see below the Top 100 Models Ranking in the first 9 month 2013:
