The Chinese company, Geely group’s rank and market share has increased thanks to VOLVO models such as XC40. The new company, Leading Ideal Automobile showed a rapid growth, and entered TOP10.
However, BMW has grown only 10.5%, under the average market growth, so they yielded the 1st place to VW group. Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi and TOYOTA group’s rank and market share all decreased because Mitsubishi Outlander and PRIUS PHEV became obsolete, so their sales also declined.
