Israel Car Sales By Brand : 2000-04


Sales were fairly strong in 2000 but fell away in 2001 and then slumped in 2002. The only reason I could find was the Second Intifada, a Palestinian uprising that lasted until around early 2005. Things were starting to improve again for car dealers about 2004.

The Israeli car market is Asian leaning, with European brands playing a limited role. In 2004, counting brands as colour listed below by region, Asian brands had 62% of total sales, Europe 23% and US 15%. As to why Mazda cars were so popular I cannot say, but if anyone can clarify that, please feel free.

With VW and Fiat falling away during this period, only three were in the top ten. VW's share went down from 8.7% to 2.8%. Meanwhile Ford and GM US moved up the rankings. Daewoo had been a popular brand but crashed as the company ran into financial trouble.
