True fleet registrations in Switzerland declined by 11.3%, despite other industry segments showing positive growth, including the short-term rental segment.
There were roughly 5,700 registered company cars in May 2019 for Switzerland, according to Dataforce. The top brand in the true fleet segment was Seat, which saw a 35.6% growth. This was followed by Skoda in second and Volvo in third.
Rounding out the top five were Ford and Peugeot, according to Dataforce. All segments in the top five saw positive numbers. Some importers were able to record significant growth year-on-year despite the negative market segment trend.
Fleet electrification is also continuing to increase. Compared with prior year’s May, registrations of electrically powered cars grew by 134.1% with the main contributions coming from the Renault Zoe, the BMW i3, Tesla with the Model 3 and the Model X, the Jaguar I-Pace, the Audi e-Tron and the Hyundai Kona, according to the release from Dataforce.
