World Car Group Ranking Nissan-370Z_Coupe_Heritage_Edition-2018

World Car Group Ranking at the end of 2017 led by Volkswagen with 10.4 million units ahead of Toyota and Renault-Nissan. American brands are the losers, while Japanese are winners. The best performance, however, was the Chinese Geely, up 35%.

While considering the global performance for single vehicles brand the leadership is undisputed, when considering the data aggregated by manufacturers group, the battle is quite interesting. Toyota Motor Company and Volkswagen Group are engaged since years, but the acquisition of Mitsubishi has projected the Renault-Nissan alliance at the level of the other two leaders.

While data for December are need to be fully consolidated, the final 2017 ranking is done, confirming the previous year positions, while Volkswagen has gained terrain over the others and Renault-Nissan is really on Toyota’s shoulders.

Indeed, Volkswagen Group was on top with 10.4 million sales (+3.8%) ahead of Toyota Motor  with 10.15 million (+1.6%) and Renault-Nissan  with 10.11 million (+6.3%).

Having finalized the sales of Opel/Vauxhall to P.S.A., General Motors Corporation (sales do not include the SAIC-Wuling-GM joint venture, reported separately) has lost the fourth place, selling 6.8 million units (+0.4% excluding Opel sales both for 2017 and 2016) and has been outpaced by the Hyundai Group, despite the heavy lost of 8.6%, selling 7.2 million. Hyundai Group was the worse performer among the Top 20 Manufacturers.

Stable in sixth place Ford Motor Company with 6.2 million sales (-1.2%) which is defining a new strategy after the sudden change of CEO, effective in the last summer.

Keep a long stable growth, Honda Motor Group was seventh with 5.3 million sales (+8.0%) ahead of FCA with 4.8 million (+1.3%).

Thanks to the acquisition of Opel, P.S.A. gained one spot advancing in 9th place with 4.1 million sales (-2.7%) followed by Suzuki with 3.1 million (+11.0%), Mercedes Daimler with 2.6 million (+8.9%) and BMW with 2.4 (+3.4%).

Thanks to the outstanding sales level in the domestic market and the acquisition of control (49%) of Malaysian unprofitable Proton and UK luxury brand Lotus, the Chinese Geely boomed 35.8% ranking 13rd with 1.9 million sales.

Please remember that data in the report do not include HCV and Bus sales but only cars and LCVs.
