Statistics are usually pretty boring. But with new car registrations, things are a little different from month to month. This was also the case in April 2018. The fact that the VW Golf is the undisputed number 1 is almost part of daily business. But everything that romps behind in the top 50 places fights for the long-awaited top places every month. This month, for one or the other VW Multivan customer, its placement is not entirely surprising. Because after a long delivery jam, 6,951 copies rolled to their long-waiting customers in April - and he immediately moved from 32nd place to third place.
Two French cars are the tail lights
If the Ford Fiesta hadn't fought its way up to a strong tenth place, the Golf (1), Tiguan (2), Multivan (3), Passat (5), Polo (8) and Touran (11 ) six VW models in the top 10. The only model that could keep its place from the previous month was also a VW: the Caddy in 26th place. The Audi A1, which was no longer sold this month, still landed in 44th place. A Renault with the Capture just slipped into the top 50. Another Frenchman, the Renault Clio, ranks one place in front of him.
Note: The registration statistics are the official information from the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg. The division into the respective classes is carried out by the manufacturer using a key number. The statistics can also show models that are not available on the German market or that are no longer being built. This peculiarity can occur with the KBA statistics if e.g. foreign vehicles are registered in Germany for the first time or vehicles have a new ID number. received.
