Singapore Car Sales Jan-Jun 2017

Toyota took over from Nissan to become the best selling brand in 2002 and been the most successful brand since. It lost out to BMW in 2011 and 2012, then Mercedes Benz in 2013 and Honda in 2016, but for now is leading in 2017.

The artificial system of COEs where buyers bid for a limited amount of entitlements to purchase a car favours premium brands. This is especially noticeable when available entitlements are low and their price goes up. With sales up, the mainstream brands move up the sales charts quickly.

With the gap between the top two so close, it could go down to the wire. Mazda continues to consolidate its position but Nissan is not having the best of years. Opel has been a marginal player in the past but is now making a move up, while Peugeot goes the other way.

The chart below shows a % symbol that represents market share. The +/- column is increase or decrease based on the first six month's market share of 2017 against the full 2016 year.
