    Default 2017 Australian VFacts Sales Figures

    https://www.carsales.com.au/editoria...losers-110434/

    I'm really surprised at how poorly Peugeot has done, and conversely surprised at how well Renault did. I'm guessing Renault figures are made up by their commercials.

    2017 Peugeot sales are better than they have been since 2015 (where they made 4000 sales) and have been falling every year since 8807 sales in 2007. It's the first year since then that YTD sales have gone up.

    This aligns fairly neatly with the period that Sime Darby just gave up.

    Renault really need to do something, like introduce some new product, or face dwindling sales. A Renault badged Dacia Duster would be a good start .... Their 'core' product, Clio, Megane and Captur aren't firing and it's their LCV range and the Koelos that are holding up the fort. Some of their overseas product aren't for Australia though, like the Twingo, Clio wagon, Scenic, Grand Scenic and Espace MPV's, Kadjar SUV, most of the Dacia badged stuff and the Talisman large sedan and wagon, so I'm not sure what they can do?

    Renault sales peaked in 2015 with 11,525 units, but then in 2016 sales declined 3.6% to 11,109 and then again in 2017 they were down another 2.7% to 10,812 units. They also got rid of one of their good guys for no reason, Justin Hocevar and replaced him with ex-Suzuki Australia's top guy, Andew Moore, who hasn't seem to have done much since taking over in October, plus they've also reduced their Australian head office workforce by 15% so that it can operate more 'efficiently'. When Justin arrived at Renault Australia in September 2010, sales increased to 3,622 units in 2011.

    Peugeot's 2017 result is a good increase over their 2016 result, considering the change over from Sime Darby to Inchcape. Their 2016 result of 3,129 units was down 21% from 2015, so they've managed to bounce back a bit, no thanks to the new 3008, which is selling between 140 and 180 units a month.



    Citroen continues to fall further behind. Down 23% in 2017 and down 12% in 2016. In 2015, they sold a measly 1,106 units, then in 2017 they sold just 735 units.

    Dodge is no longer being imported, as is Chery, Proton and SsangYong. SsangYong will be back this year under a new third party importer of they may come back as a full factory backed operations. They're owned by Mahindra, so who knows what they'll do.

    Build ugly, low safety lummox vehicles with the only redeeming feature being price.

    Renault have the Australia Post van contract so their sales may be a bit skewed.
    I drive a Laguna diesel wagon. There is no replacement offered by Renault.
    Scenic owners love their vehicles. There is no replacement offered by Renault.
    Renault has the Clio, Megane, and Koleos. Anything else is simply invisible due to lack of marketing.
    Wouldn't it be nice to see Twingos offered at a Korean type entry level price?
    Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Twizzys in the city? Lobby the governments to allow them to right angle park.

    and more or less the period where they had an alternative to the Commode and Foulcan sedans ?

    Having recently picked up a used Latitude it amazes me that it has been withdrawn from the model range...

    Yes, a lot of Renault commercials around, but there are also a lot of Koleos - at least out here in the sticks.

    I don't buy this malarkey that the average Aussie doesn't want the usual six cylinder sedan anymore, I reckon that it's more about what the makers have on offer and the ad-men that are driving the market. The promoted 'manly' image these days seems to be more about 4wd pretend utes than anything else - how many Rangers did you see today ? A mate got one of these recently, he's already found out that it's pretty useless in the Bunnings car park with a dozen little sticks of wood in your hands....

    cheers,
    Bob
