Best-selling Cars in Europe. Top 100 Ranking.

Thanks to its unique Mobility Database, focus2move is able to assembly data from over 85 World’s car markets representing 96% of estimated global light vehicles sales. This report includes all 39 European countries featured and is the only official independent source related to model ranking in Europe. Others similar reports had been issued regarding “Top 100” models ranking in USA, China, Germany, France, UK, Italy and Canada.

To discover the European Top 100 Models Ranking is a travel between old nameplates, icons for millions people and new models, modern aggressive and projected to be the leader of tomorrow.

Although this is the first time ever that a source is free releasing this kind of data, all automotive experts or enthusiasts probably can bet on top 10 models: Golf, Polo, Fiesta Clio, Focus, Qasquai, Astra, Corsa and 208 were the top 8 in October and – with a different position in the rank – in the first ten months of the year. Nameplates with at least 20+ years in the market, a part Qasquai, the youngest, while launched in the 2006.

Willing to be short talking on these icons performance, we wish to point out the growing success of Renault Clio, 4th in October and 5th year to date. Finally Renault produced a city car with style and customers are appreciating!

Peugeot 208 was 9th. It is new, just because Peugeot nameplate strategy consists in replicating models changing the name. However, 208 should be considered an icon as the first 8 and its heritage is based on the 205, an icon in Europe in early eighties.

Skoda Octavia, placed in 10th is the first great surprise. Not because the car is not strong, nice and powerful, but because it is a Skoda! Octavia in October entered the top ten club while was 11th year to date becoming the best-selling mid-size cars in Europe, ahead of Volkswagen Passat! This was really a great performance underlining the phenomenal job that Skoda is doing in Europe (and not only there!).

Lada Granta, leader in Russia, was 14th in October with 1.0% of market share. The best Lada model, a brand in huge difficulties in the domestic market, was ahead of the first Italian model, the Fiat 500, 15th in October while only 20th in 10 months 2013. Really an awful end for the Italian Automotive sector!

Indeed the 15th model is the Duster. The SUV made in Romania (and in Slovenia, Morocco and India) by Dacia is sold under two brands, Dacia and Renault (in Russia where it is in Top 10), for a strange decision taken by Renault, aiming to hide in Russia the real origin of the car, considering the very poor image of Dacia brand under the Socialist Soviet Republic. A part this, Dacia Duster is together with the Skoda Octavia the great winner of this year, ranking in 38th place as Renault plus in 60th as Dacia.

The worldwide leader, Toyota, is able to place the best model only in 16th position and it is the Yaris, thanks to the success of the hybrid version rather than the style of the last generation. The second Toyota was the new Auris, finally a product appreciated by Europeans. In October it ranked 21st further growing from the cumulated 33rd ranking. Thanks to the new wagon version and hybrid engines, we foresee this model in the top 20 in the 2014.

The emerging stars are two: as first, the Renault Captur, launched in the last spring already in 22nd place, thanks to a very price value, while new Peugeot 2008 is 27th, in spite of the price is clearly less attractive.

Finally, pick up the bestselling model worldwide is hard. Toyota Corolla, the twin of Auris, is only 61st.

Now, see below the Top 100 Models Ranking and find your favorite position!
