World Car Market: Top 50 Brands ranking in first half 2013. Renault and Dacia up.

In June 2013, top 8 positions were unchanged from May, while Renault advanced in 9th overtaking Fiat. ChangAn in 20th and Skoda in 21st gained 3 spots from May, while Maruti in 24th is losing terrain affected by negative Indian market trend.

Byd in 34th gained 4 spots while Dacia in 39th outpaced Seat in 40th. In few years a clear low cost strategy is paying back to Renault, while an unclear Seat positioning is not delivering for Volkswagen Group!

Looking at the Top Brand performance:

Toyota’s sales in June were 641.168 with a share of 9.5%, up 0.1 points of share from the previous month. Although the performance was improving, it was almost 1 point below last year, mainly due to low sales in China. In first half, sales were 3.88 million, with a share of 9.4%.

Volkswagen was strong in June with 548.000 sales and one of the best share in the last two years, at 8.1%. In first half sales were 3.17 million and share was 7.8%. In the next half, rather to attack Toyota, Volkswagen should look at its shoulder as Ford is fast reducing the gap.

Ford kept the magic moment, posting 516.187 sales with a share at 7.7%. The success of Fiesta facelift and the Focus worldwide leadership among models are reinforced by Ecosport/Kuga success and by strong trend of North American markets. First half sales were 2.82 million with a share of 6.8%. In the next half Ford could perform above 7.5% of global share!

Chevrolet in 4th sold 419.349 vehicles with a share of 6.2%, gaining 0.5 points from May. Year to date sales were 2.375.670 with a share of 5.9%. The GM brand is fast growing in South America, while in the North is struggling to keep back Japanese and Korean competitors.

Hyundai was 5th and with 369.051 sales achieved its all-time record share at 5.5%. First half sales were 2.177.195 with a share of 5.3% and this was the best half ever for the Korean giant.

Nissan in 6th sold 341.552 units with a share of 5.1%, up 0.3 points. Nissan is recovering after low sales in April and May and strong first half (the last for the Japanese fiscal year). First half sales were 2.1 million with a share of 5.1%. In Theory, Nissan can keep Hyundai in the second half.

Honda in 7th was near with 338.737 sales and 5.0% of share. Honda is performing better than others Japanese in China. First half sales were 1.947.269, 150.000 behind Nissan.
