Japanese cars are generally synonymous with reliability, durability, and fuel efficiency in the global market, which also reflects consumers' recognition of the overall quality level and technology of the Japanese automotive industry.
And in the world's major markets, the sales performance of Japanese cars are extremely bright. Then there are definitely many consumers who are curious about how Japanese cars will be sold in their local Japanese market. How does Japan face the recognition of car companies in its own country?
Recently, with the major car companies in Japan successively announcing their January sales figures in Japan, the car company sales rankings in the Japanese market have also been released. Surprisingly, Japan is worthy of being an automobile powerhouse. In the top ten list of domestic car sales, none of the foreign and joint venture brands are Japanese brands. Together with Germany, a car power, I am afraid this situation will not happen. It can also be seen that the Japanese people really recognize Japanese brands.
Specifically, the top ten on the list are the ten car companies Toyota, Suzuki, Daihatsu, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Lexus, and Isuzu. All of them are Japanese domestic brands, and among them, in addition to Daihatsu's early exit from the Chinese market, the other nine car companies are also in full swing in China.
In terms of sales, Toyota is still the top 1 car company in the Japanese market. In January, 107,081 vehicles were sold. It is also the only brand that has exceeded 100,000 vehicles, which is almost more than Suzuki, which sells 51,034. 50,000 vehicles. Toyota is leading the Japanese auto market with absolute strength.
It was a little surprising that Daihatsu Motors could surpass Honda Motors with a ranking of 47,483. However, considering the Japanese car market's tilted support for small cars, it is not surprising that Daihatsu, which has been deeply cultivated in the field of small cars, can achieve such results.
The fourth to tenth places are 46692 Honda, 42231 Nissan, 15,194 Mazda, 10277 Subaru, 6,825 Mitsubishi, 4,797 Lexus, and 4,582 Isuzu.
Although the Japanese auto market is all dominated by local brands, the Japanese government increased its consumption tax rate from 8% to 10% in October last year, which also caused a decline in the Japanese auto market. In addition, among the top ten car companies, except for Subaru, the sales of other brand car companies saw a sharp decline in January.
