    I have a suspicion government purchases has a bigger influence on these figures than what we realise. There was lobbying to get government to only buy locally manufactured products. Not only does it create job opportunities, but more kinds of taxes can be "claimed" back resulting in much less expensive purchase prices. I have been told that is why Polos are bought, but no Amaroks. Apparently they have also stopped buying Tata bakkies.
    After all, buy South African is the right thing to do!

    Thanks Dirk

    I looked at the figures you provided in terms of percentage of market share. It seems as if the difference between Toyota and Ford (monthly) is on average 8,15%. Ford narrowed the gap in January, April and May to below 5% with the closest in April (3.63%). Toyota had a massive 14.44 in March - with Ford performing stellar in June to narrow the gap to only 3,63 in response to Toyota's huge share in March.

    I attached my sheet for anyone interested in this - some interesting data on the share between Amarok and Navara - specifically for the month of April. April thus the upset month for Toyota and Volkswagen.

    Ok, my thoughts.... Should the NP200 be really on the list be compared to the bigger type bakkies? Still, we all would like to know the split between single and double cabs. Would be interesting to do a price comparison in relation to this split and the numbers provided. Think I will prob go for the (an) Isuzu...

    I agree the Nissan NP200 cannot really be compared to the rest of the cars on this table, it shares very few attributes with them.

    Interesting stats, especially the timing of some of the spikes in sales....One thing is for sure, the 'profit to company' percentage between Ford and Toyota will be a lot higher than 8%

    I would like to see a proper breakdown

    DC 4x4 premium
    DC 4x2
    SC /CLUBCAB PREMIUM
    SC WORK HORSE

    The np 300 is a cheap work vehicle and has no relevance to the luxury dc market, same with the Isuzu 250

    Then Ford and toyota sell the vehicles with no taxes to the government and stupid low prices, I have seen the invoicing. Enough to make you sick and that accounts for a lot of sales.

    As far as I know Mercedes doesn't make their sales figures public. Would be interesting to know though.

    .........Well, below the Navara I presume, which is also (sadly) last. Nice looking DC (the Navara, not the other "first in its class" baster bakkie)

    FOCUS, Mercedes Benz SA, FOCUS........you are the reason the Amarok does so well.

    A 5 year old can tell you that.

    Petri ek kan getuig dat die Navara rerig ‘n fantastiese bakkie is, ek geniet myne baie! Maar net so is die Amarok, Ranger en Isuzu as jy die top model met auto en 4x4 vat.

    Ten spyte van die coils agter ry die Nav steeds soos bakkie. Toe Merc sê hulle het baie aan die x Klas verbeter was ek nogal opgewonde om hom te toets ten spyte van die prys. Ek het verwag die verbeteringe gaan voel soos die verskil tussen ‘n Prado en ‘n Fortuner gegewe die prys verskil tussen die Nav en X is omtrent dieselfde as jy die top modelle van elk vergelyk. Ook die hele ophef wat met die bemarking gemaak is, en hulle “slogan” First of a new kind.

    Wel na ek hom toets bestuur het kan ek met oorgawe sê die verskil is nie naastenby genoeg om die prys te regverdig nie!

    My beste vriend ry ‘n v6 Amarok, wat ek al ‘n paar keer bestuur het met en sonder vrag. Ek koop hom 100 keer bo die X 250 Power en teen die prys van x 350 koop ek die Amarok 200 keer eerder!

    Die probleem is Mercedes dink hulle besit die term luuks en die eksklusiewe reg om dit aan hulle voertuie te koppel. Ek meen “First of a new kind”....rerig? Het hulle nie gesien hoe bou die Amerikaners d/c bakkies al die laaste 15-20 jaar nie? As jy die X Klas power met ‘n F150 platinum vergelyk lyk die X Klas so 10 jaar agter!

    As ek kyk hoe min X’e ek op die pad sien daagliks dink ek hulle is besig om ‘n goeie les te leer.
