Japan Vehicles Sales in July fell down softly. Toyota is roaring!

Japan Vehicles Sales in July

Japan Vehicles Sales in July fell down softly. Toyota kept a double-digit speed improving share over 35% while also the controlled brand Daihatsu. The Toyota Aqua ranked 2nd outpacing the Honda N-Box.

Market Outlook

Japanese GDP rebounded in Q1, preventing the economy from falling into recession, yet uncertainty about the health of the Japanese economy persists. The all-important manufacturing sector shows no sign of recovery, while external demand remains grim amid a soaring yen.

Although trade ties between the UK and Japan are relatively small, the Japanese economy will feel the impact of Brexit mainly via heightened volatility in the financial markets, the upward pressure on the yen and the weaker growth in the Euro area.

The Japanese vehicles market decreased one more time in July, recording the third month in a row with sales losses.

According to the data released by the JADAJAMA and JAIA, (the Japanese Associations of car manufacturers, importers and dealers), in July total new vehicles sales had been 415.580, down moderately by 2.0%.

Year to date July sales in the third largest market in the world had been 2.957.577, down 4.4% compared to the same period of the previous year.

Competitive Arena

The leader, Toyota led the ranking in July with 146.328 sales (+10.1%) and with 35.2 % of market share. In second place Honda kept the previous month low speed with sales at 53.569 (-10.8%) followed by Suzuki with 51.251 sales (-4.3%).

Mitsubishi jumped in 9th place, down 34.7% with 6.364 sales.
