Brand loyalty– Tesla and Dacia at the same level, SEAT Ateca as a conqueror

Brand loyalty– Tesla and Dacia at the same level, SEAT Ateca as

At first glance, these two manufacturers could not be more different. And yet the Romanian manufacturer and the electric car pioneer from Palo Alto, California, have one thing in common: extremely loyal customers. "Private Loyalty" statistics are updated monthly and Dataforce took a closer look at the loyalty of drivers in the German Private Market, examining brand and model loyalty in detail. This allows us to answer two very different questions regarding loyalty:

1) How loyal are customers?
Statistics reveal that former Dacia or Tesla drivers remain loyal to the respective brand in more than 70% of all cases when changing cars. This is an outstandingly high figure when considering the other end of the scale with brands where eight out of ten former customers turn to a competitor! And it is also possible to analyse for which makes and which models the brand’s former customers are opting.

One of the models with the highest volume on the German Private Market, the VW Golf, achieved a loyalty rate of 23% in YTD February 2019. This means that less than a quarter of the former owners of this model opt for the same one again when buying a new car. 34% of the other buyers switch to another model within the brand and not always into a larger vehicle, in some cases into smaller ones. The remaining 43% actually turn their backs on the brand. This was not always the case. Back in 2015, the Golf achieved a loyalty rate of 35%.

2) How successful are brands in winning third-party customers?
Almost every new model launch is based on the manufacturer's desire to win customers from competitors. While some of the planned conquest rates turn out to be wishful thinking, the Private Loyalty statistics allows for clear data driven results. For example, the Ateca, the first SUV of SEAT, was launched in 2016: the data shows that three out of four current Ateca customers did not drive a SEAT before. Most of these new customers were won from outside the VW group, primarily from BMW, Mercedes and Opel and the 3 Series, C-Class and Astra respectively.

Swiss car market turns into the red on sharp contraction in June
In June 2019 new passenger car registrations in Switzerland were down sharply on the same month last year. Nearly 28,000 registered passenger cars represent an overall market decline of 11.2%. Registrations of light commercial vehicles fell even more sharply (11.9%). Weak June causes passenger car market to fall below previous year's level Both the Private Market ( 13.9%) and the commercial market ( 8.4%) can look back on a weak

UK True Fleet takes a dip and sees its lowest March figures since 2014
The UK True Fleet has delivered another negative month for 2019 in what is usually the strongest month of the year (due to the new plate release). The Total Market finished with 458,054 registrations, down by 3.4% and it was the RAC/Short-Term Rental channel which arrested what could have been a much high slide thanks to its +13.6%. Both the Private and Dealer/Manufacturer channel posted negative growths of 2.8% and
Spain’s True Fleet growth streak ends rather abruptly
The Spanish True Fleet Market’s 55-months growth streak ended with a 17.1% in September with some unexpected consequences for the brand ranking. We also found one vehicle segment holding up against the WLTP storm. In light of the full implementation of WLTP as of September 1st, 2018 along with the homologation difficulties of several OEMs and anticipated registrations over the recent months, the only question was to what extent
Vamos! Spanish True Fleet Market with a brilliant start of the year
No doubt: the Spanish passenger car market had a very promising start in 2018. With almost 106,000 new registrations it was the highest January volume since 2007. The registrations in the Private Market increased by + 15.5% over January 2017 but the rise was even bigger for True Fleets: a plus of 20.9% was the highest monthly percentage growth since November 2016. Despite the good result for both Private and
UK True Fleet remains in a negative territory for another month
The UK slump continues with the three channels all recording negative growth for June. The total market finished with 243,000 registrations, equating to a - 4.8% in the growth stakes. Once again it was the Private Market hardest hit registering - 7.9%, followed by True Fleet with - 4.5% (coincidently the same drop as last month) with Special Channels the least negative with - 0.3%. Interesting to note was the
French True Fleet down 9% for April despite strong numbers from the home brands
Another tough month for the French True Fleet Market with April being the fourth consecutive month with registration volumes below last year’s. The decline by 9.0% led to a year-to-date result of -7.2%. The Private Market had a similar disappointing April with -8.1% but at least its YTD performance is (still) slightly positive with +0.2%. Let’s have a look at the brand ranking within fleets. Despite the weak market Renault in
