After a strong momentum in July which saw the Honda HR-V achieving its best sales figure in 2022 and overtaking the Toyota Corolla Cross in overall sales up to then, it would see a dip in sales culminating in its weakest sales figures of the year so far in September. The shortfall is due to shortage in semiconductor parts affecting production and deliveries.
According to the latest Thai sales data, the Honda HR-V slipped three spots from July to place fourth in September sales with only 497 units sold that month.
It is the HR-V’s lowest recorded figure for the year so far and that led to the Corolla Cross taking back the best-selling compact crossover title not just for September (1,905 units) but for the year so far.
Taking the two positions between the No.1 Corolla Cross and the No.4 HR-V in September 2022 are the Mazda CX-30 (653 units) and Nissan Kicks (594 units).
Elsewhere in the charts, the MG VS which was launched in August 2022 performed consistently with 3-digit sales for the second month in a row. Another Chinese SUV, the Haval Jolion performed decently in September with 248 units that month.
