New Caledonia Cars Market in 2016 fell down in double digit for the second consecutive year, recording the sharpest slowdown since 2010. Ford was the market leader ahead of Dacia.

Market Outlook

New Caledonia has about 25% of the world’s known nickel reserves. Only a small amount of the land is suitable for cultivation, and food accounts for about 20% of imports. In addition to nickel, substantial financial support from France – equal to more than 15% of GDP – and tourism are keys to the health of the economy.

Following the negative mood grew during the 2015, the domestic cars market remained weak in the 2016 as well, posting the lowest performance of the last decade. December ended the year with 682 cars passengers sold (-11.1%), for a total of 7.915 units, down 12.9%.

Competitive Arena

In 2016 Ford was the brand leader despite the sales losses with 945 units (-13.2%) ahead of Dacia and Peugeot, while among the highest increases were Dodge, Renault and Fiat.

The worst performer was Mitsubishi, losing 57.7%, followed by Chevrolet, Mazda, Citroen, Kia and Volkswagen.
