Land Rover Sales Belgium By Model: 2002-2015


Getting sales by model data for Belgium isn't easy but I can share some with you. Fourteen years of sales for Land Rover, but stopping at 2015. It would have been nice to add 2016 but I realise it isn't happening so might as well reveal what is available.

For this period, sales increased 120%. Between 2002 and 2011 nothing really happened the the advent of the Evoque seemed to change that. It added sales without canabalising any it seems, the ideal scenario when a new niche is entered.

For 2016, LR attained 6,275 registrations, up another 7%. By adding 2016 sales, LR easily passed the 50,000 mark for the 15 years.

Technically, the Discovery Sport replaced the Freelander so should be in one column but I decided not to do it that way. Others are mainly commercial registrations for which I was unable to find model detail. Many of them surely would be Defenders.

Citroën & DS Car Production By Model : 2016

C4 Picasso 

Citroën had a small reduction in its core brand to go with the same result in 2015. On the other hand, it's upmarlet sub-brand DS had its 4th consecutive year of decrease, this years 18% the worst of them. I do get the impression that things will turn around soon. They have to or else.

Citroën: The C4 & C4 Picasso was the top model as it has been for the past six years. Mind you the C3 nearly passed it. After that, its a long way down to the other cars. Those two models have over two thirds of all sales.

Peugeot Car Production By Model : 2016


Peugeot brand passenger car production was up in 2016, to the tune of 14%. The reason is due to two old models that were revived for - I presume - the Iranian market. The 405 debuted in 1987 and the 206 in 1998. If they were excluded from the numbers, the total would have been down by 2.3%.

For 2016, the 208 super-mini passed the 308 small family car in units made. The small SUV 2008 proved the necessity of such vehicles with an 8% rise. A new feature is the other figure, only representing 0.1% of the total as it turns out.
