ASEAN best selling cars. The top 50 in the 2018

Asean best selling Cars Honda-Civic_Sedan-2019

Asean best selling cars ranking year to date  2018 confirms the leadership under the Toyota Hilux.  The best model in Malaysia, the Perodua Axia,  advanced in the third step of the podium while the new Mitsubishi Xpander, already best model in Indonesia, landed in sixth place.

Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is an economical free trade are in South Asian, including the following nations: Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia.

Economic Environment

ASEAN economy expanded 4.9% in the third quarter of 2018, buttressed by strong domestic demand. However, this still marks a loss of momentum from the second quarter’s 5.2% expansion.

After Singapore and Vietnam released GDP readings in October, this month it was the turn of regional heavyweight Indonesia, which accounts for over a third of ASEAN’s nominal GDP. Indonesia’s economy grew at a solid pace in Q3 thanks to buoyant private consumption—boosted by employment growth and mild inflation—and expansions in government consumption and fixed investment. The external sector, however, continued to drag on the economy on surging imports.

Growth in the Philippines moderated in Q3, although it remained the envy of most other economies in the region. The intensification of price pressures took the edge off private consumption growth, while the government’s infrastructure drive—despite buoying fixed investment—sucked in imports, leading to a negative contribution from the external sector.

Market Trend

In the 2018 the consumer’s demand for new four-wheeler vehicles is almost positive in the ASEAN region.

Year to Date October total sales in the ten countries of the region (Brunei and Laos data are not preliminary) have been 2.942.980 (+7.1%) a robust increased fueled by the performance in Thailand (+18.6%) and Indonesia (+8.7%) which have balanced the fall in the Philippines, hit by tax increase.
