2022 does not take off for the car market, April which records yet another collapse in registrations of new cars with -33% on a monthly basis compared to the same month of 2021, a situation not too different from the cumulative figure from January which reads -26% with 442,113 new cars registered against the 598,015 of the previous year. The spiral that began in the autumn therefore continues, a combination that brings together the aftermath of the pandemic, the difficulties of the supply chain that supplies the production plants and the uncertainties about the energy transition plans, which inevitably condition both the choices of manufacturers and those of consumers. . The failure to initiate incentives also weighs heavily, announced on 18 February as part of the Energy Decree no. 17, and then entrusted to a decree agreed by several ministries, which however should have been published by 31 March in the Official Gazette as told by Official Motors. In the absence of the implementing decrees, and despite the institutional promises, there is still no start date. In such a context it is to handle the numbers, which inevitably become hot ground, however we wanted to define the top ten of the best-selling cars in April based on the segment to which they belong according to the Aci data processed by Unrae.

SEGMENT A: FIAT PANDA, FIAT 500 AND HYUNDAI I10

Let’s start with segment A, that of city cars, a market segment that in April weighs 16% of the total market. In terms of numbers, registrations of the “small” were 16,403 compared to 25,170 in April 2021, the queen is always the Fiat Panda with 9,474 units, followed at a considerable distance by its sister Fiat 500 with 2,087 units. Following Hyundai i10 (1.033), then Toyota Aygo X (970), Kia Picanto (921), Volkswagen Up! (494), Smart Fortwo (405), Dacia Spring (372), Suzuki Ignis (254), Abarth 500 (210).

SEGMENT B: FORD PUMA, LANCIA YPSILON, DACIA SANDERO

Segment B, that of compact cars, is now strategic for manufacturers as it is the one with the greatest specific weight in terms of volumes: 37% in April with 36,462 registrations compared to 55,588 a year earlier. The Ford Puma conquers the scepter of best-selling compact in Italy with 2,898 units sold. Followed by Lancia Ypsilon (2,742), Dacia Sandero (2,742), Toyota Yaris Cross (2,280), Citroen C3 (1,861), Opel Corsa (1,636), Toyota Yaris (1,632), Peugeot 208 (1,449), Renault Captur (1,352) and Volkswagen T-Cross (1,350).

SEGMENT C: VOLKSWAGEN T-ROC, JEEP COMPASS AND FIAT 500X

Another weight market segment is the C segment, which includes compact midsize and – above all – SUVs and compact crossovers, always on the rise to the detriment of classic sedans. A segment that in January 2022 is worth 30% of the market with 29,329 registrations, when in the same month a year earlier there were 43,247. On the top step of the podium is the Volkswagen T-Roc with 2,743 registered units, then Jeep Compass (2,250), Fiat 500X (1,969), Jeep Renegade (1,941), Peugeot 3008 (1,653), Kia Sportage (1,104), Dacia Sportage (1.034), Cupra Formentor (1.016), Toyota C-Hr (933) and Ford Ecosport (875).

SEGMENT D: BMW X1, AUDI Q3 AND ALFA ROMEO STELVIO

Further up we find the D segment, that of the middle-high schools. Also in this case, the classic sedans have now been outclassed by SUVs and crossovers, in line with the overwhelming tastes of motorists. The weight, compared to the total market, in January 2021 is 14% with 14,230 registrations, in 2021 the bar had reached 19,736. The best-selling model is the BMW X1 at 1,214 registered units, then Audi Q3 (1,170), Alfa Romeo Stelvio (884), Ford Kuga (850), Bmw X3 (782), Range Rover Evoque (743), Audi Q5 ( 725), Toyota Rav4 (792), Mercedes Gla (579) and Volkswagen Tiguan (519).

SEGMENT E: MERCEDES GLE, BMW X5 AND MERCEDES GLE COUPÉ

The E segment is that of luxury models, once the prerogative of large sedans that today share the market with SUVs and crossovers. Obviously, the relative weight is very low compared to the market – 2% of the total with 1,882 registrations, also in this case down compared to the 2,593 of a year earlier. On the top step of the podium we find the Mercedes Gle with 274 units, then Bmw X5 (188), Mercedes Gle Coupé (181), Audi Q8 (122), Jaguar F-Pace (113), Audi A6 (112), Bmw Serie 5 (111), Bmw X6 (111), Range Rover Velar (85) and Mercedes E-Class (84).

SEGMENT F: PORSCHE 911, PORSCHE TAYCAN AND MERCEDES S CLASS

Finally, the F segment, that of sports cars and flagships. Also in this case it is a market segment that counts on small numbers – less than 1% of total sales with 369 registrations compared to 455 in 2021 – but with great appeal and extremely profitable for car manufacturers. At the top is the stainless Porsche 911 with 93 units registered in April, followed by its sister Porsche Taycan (34) and the Mercedes S-Class (33). Then Porsche Panamera (26), Maserati Ghibli (25), Mercedes GT Coupé 4 (20), Ferrari F8 (14), Ferrari Roma (12), Jaguar F-Type (11) and Audi A8 (10).
