Instant success for the Toyota Corolla Cross in South Africa.

Thanks to one of our readers Anton we can share with you today rare data about South Africa. New vehicle sales in the country are up 6.6% year-on-year in November to 41,588 units. Passenger cars are up 9.4% to 27,828 units, boosted by strong rental demand (15.6% of the market). Light commercials are down -0.8% to 11,156. In the manufacturers ranking, Toyota cements its domination with 28.6% of the market with the VW Group in 2nd place at a weak 13.2% share. Suzuki impresses at #3 with 7.4% share, distancing Hyundai at 6.9% and Nissan at 5.6%. Ford is relegated to a poor 6th place with 5.4% share vs. #3 and 9.3% over the Full Year 2020. Isuzu, Renault and Kia follow, while Haval brilliantly rounds out the Top 10 with a strong 4.2% share.

Model-wise, this month Toyota monopolises the podium with the Hilux, Hiace and Corolla Cross landing at #3 for its first month of sales in the country. The Isuzu D-Max is solid in 4th place overall while the VW Polo Vivo rounds out the Top 5 at a weak 3.9% share vs. 5.2% over the FY2020. The Toyota Starlet aka Glanza, a rebadged Suzuki Baleno, ends the month in 6th place ahead of the VW Polo, Ford Ranger and Suzuki S-Presso. Another recent launch by the Japanese manufacturer, the Toyota Agya rounds out the Top 10. Notice also the Renault Triber at #15, the Toyota Urban Cruiser (based on the Indian Suzuki Vitara Brezza) at #17, the Great Wall P-Series at #19, the Haval Jolion at #27, Kia Sonet at #29 and Toyota Rumion, a rebadged Suzuki Ertiga, at #30. In the past year, Toyota has accelerated its sourcing in India for the South African market.
