Global Light Vehicle Ranking Toyota-FT-1_Graphite_Concept_2014

Global Light Vehicle Ranking in February led by Toyota recovering the leadership lost in the previous month. Mercedes was the fastest growing brand while Fiat the worst.

In February 2015 according to data collected by focus2move Research Team in over 120 markets, the total new Light Passengers Vehicles global market grew only 1.0% from the correspondent month last year at 6.45 million units.

Following the surprisingly January figures, with Volkswagen overtaking Toyota by 8.000 units thanks to phenomenal Chinese sales, in February Toyota recovered the leadership, taking sales level equal to January albeit smaller days period and lower sales in China for local calendar year-end festival.

Toyota sales were 613.000, down 3.2% from the correspondent period last year, but enough to gain a wide gap over Volkswagen that fell 10.0% at 495.980 units. In the first two months, Toyota was ahead with 1.22 million sales, 111.000 more than Volkswagen.

Just three out of top 10 scored a positive month, with Ford in third with 407.231 sales (+1.9%) gaining terrain over the followers, Nissan (-8.8%), Chevrolet (-7.0%), Hyundai (-1.2%) and Honda (-2.3%) all losers.

Mercedes gained the 9th place, up 3 spots from January, with 143.558 sales (+10.0%) performing the best increase among the top 22 brands.

Fiat was the worst brand in top 27 brands, losing 11.2%, hit by Brazil and Argentina market collapse.
