SUV registration figures May 2015: The tops and flops for SUVs

Surprising braking maneuver for new registrations in Germany: with a minus of almost seven percent in May, the profits were from the first four Vigorously evaporated months of the year. For the first time in what felt like an eternity, even the off-roaders went downhill, although the minus for SUVs was comparatively minor at -2.3 percent.

Land Rover and especially Jeep strong

However, not all manufacturers were hit the same, even in the doldrums some models are doing really well with decent growth rates. Land Rover and Jeep achieved double-digit growth, and Jeep sales rose by 52 percent in May alone compared to the same month last year. Mitsubishi is also currently on a run, the two SUVs ASX (+ 35%) and Outlander (+ 24%) are selling brilliantly.

In contrast, some other models have suffered significant losses in some cases. The Audi Q7 - of course, the successor is just around the corner - lost a lot. The VW Touareg and BMW X6 are current models, but these too went for a swim. Overall, it is primarily the top 15 among SUVs that are losing their breath, which has a corresponding impact on the entire segment. If bestsellers such as the Ford Kuga or the Opel Mokka lose 1,000 or 700 buyers within a month, that makes itself felt.

Mazda and Ssangyong take off

Mazda reports back. On the one hand with the new CX-3, which is currently still starting its real market launch with dealer approvals, and on the other hand with the CX-5, which was a little weak last month. Now the successful Japanese SUV is back on the accelerating track.

A new addition this month is the Ssangyong Tivoli, which has a three-digit registration number - although it is still almost exclusively dealer and manufacturer registrations. This is completely different with Tivoli's big brother: the Korando has increased its sales figures by 150 percent compared to the same month last year, and almost 80 percent of customers are private individuals.

However, that is pretty up and down for a Volks-SUV in May indifferent: the VW Tiguan does its laps alone at the top, the runners-up can't even see its taillights.
