The Singaporean continues to implode, down another -32.3% year-on-year in August to 2,374 registrations, keeping in mind August 2021 was already down the exact same -32.3% on the year prior. The year-to-date tally now stands at 21,470 units, down an equally daunting -34.4% on the same period in 2021. Toyota (-38.3%) remains the most popular carmaker in the country with 19.7% share vs. 21.8% so far this year. It distances BMW (-14%) up two spots on last month to #2 while both Mercedes (-2.8%) and Honda (-6.8%) vastly outpace the market below. Porsche (+231.3%) goes completely against the market with a splendid year-on-year lift. All remaining Top 10 brands fall even faster than the market, with Mazda (-68.1%), Audi (-61.1%) and Nissan (-51.3%) the hardest hit. Notice Tesla (-44.2%) up to #6 despite a ghastly year-on-year loss.
