Top Ten Cars sold in the last 12 Months

Just published is the top cars sold in Switzerland in the last 12 months.

174‘033 new cars were sold in the last 12 months, nearly 6% more than a year ago. Dacia being the the "brand" with the largest increase - not everyone in Switzerland can afford those RR or Aston Martins .

Nothing out of the ordinary but amazed how close they (in terms of sales) are aside the top top 2 which are basically the same car anyway ...:

VW Golf with 5968 sold
Skoda Octavia with 3785 sold
VW Polo with 2682 sold
Audi A4 with 2445 sold
Ford Fiesta with 2424 sold
Opel Astra with 2367 sold
BMW 3 series with 2241 sold
Audi A3 with 2186 sold
Peugeot 207 with 2165 sold
Seat Ibiza with 2123 sold

Re: Top Ten Cars sold in the last 12 Months

Interesting no Japanese car is among them
I thought at least Toyota Prius would make it on the list.

I don't have to look it up...I believe you.
Reason for what I said is because every second cab you see on the streets these days is Prius.

Re: Top Ten Cars sold in the last 12 Months

Does this mean that there are more of these cars on the roads and thus more of them get sold? Or is it a representation of turnover, regardless of sales?

VW Golf with 5968 sold
I remember reading some years back that the Golf has often been the top seller in Switzerland.

Dont golfs also havea high re-sale value?

I notice that few people-movers are bought "new" - just little zip-abouts.

You have your first "big" car as the touran at number 16. Then again a bunch of wee things.

If I were a gambling thing, i'd buy shares in VW

Maybe they are smart enough to see that Prius is just one big eco-hype misunderstanding, and not that green after all?

Undoubtedly, but the road to alternatives to fossil fuels for transport has to start somewhere.

Re: Top Ten Cars sold in the last 12 Months

Re: Top Ten Cars sold in the last 12 Months

It's a bit of a coup when you consider that VW, Skoda, Audi and Seat are all the same company sharing floorplans, engines, drivetrains etc.
