Japanese new vehicle sales: eco-car incentives to salvage 2012 sales to 5M units

2011 sales drops by 15.0% to 4.21 million units due to earthquake

2012/02/02

Summary

 The Great East Japan Earthquake and the flood in Thailand had a negative effect on the 2011 Japanese new vehicle sales; it dropped by 15.0% over the previous year to 4.21 million units. The sales are, however, likely to turn upward by 19.1% to five million units due to the economic stimulus packages, "Eco-car Subsidy Program" and "Eco-car Tax Break," according to JAMA (Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association).

 In the passenger car market, Nissan won the second largest share due to its rapid recovery from the stalled production by the earthquake. In contrast, due to the slow production recovery from the earthquake and the flooded Thailand Plant, Honda slipped to third place. As for sales by model, the Toyota Prius made it to first place for the third consecutive year despite decrease in sales by 20% over the previous year. The Honda Fit moved to second place.

Second round of Eco-car Subsidy Program likely to salvage 2012 sales to five million units, 2011 sales drops by 15.0 % to 4.21 million units due to earthquake

 The 2011 new vehicle sales had suddenly lost velocity due to the East Japan Great Earthquake and flood in Thailand, despite of the first upward momentum in six years as seen in 2010. The two natural disasters had a negative effect on the 2011 sales; it dropped by 15.0% over the previous year to 4.21 million units. The result was equal to the 54% level of the best record in 1990 which was 7.77 million units. The new vehicle sales in the first two months of 2011 were below the previous year level, but the sales topped the record as in the same period of 2009 before the start of the Eco-car Subsidy Program. Unfortunately, the sales dropped by more than 30% on a year-to-year basis due to stalled production after the great earthquake in March 2011.

 In the summer of 2011 when the production started recovery, the new vehicle sales increased to the 2009 level which had less influence from the Eco-car Subsidy Program. The production was interrupted again by the flood in Thailand in October 2011. The sales in the November-December period resulted in a 10% decrease compared to the sales in the same period of 2009.

 In 2011, non-mini vehicle sales were down by 16.7% over the previous year to 2.808 million units. Mini vehicle sales were down by 11.9% to 1.657 million units; however, the percentage of total sales exceeded 36% to 36.1% for the first time in two years.

 Due to the revival of the Eco-car Subsidy Program and the extension of the Eco-car Tax Break, JAMA estimated that the 2012 new vehicle sales volume will be 5.016 million units which is a 19.1% increase on a year-to-year basis.

Eco-car Subsidy Program to be revived and Eco-car Tax Break to be extended

 The Eco-car Subsidy Program for the purchase of new vehicles will be revived for the first time since September 2010 with stricter fuel economy requirements than before. The program will be applied to vehicles purchased on and after December 20, 2011. It will end on January 31, 2013 (planned). The Eco-car Tax Break, which was scheduled to end in the spring of 2012, will be extended by three years, while its fuel economy requirements will be also tightened.

NOTE: Both the revival of the Eco-car Program and extension of the Eco-car Tax Break were approved in a cabinet meeting in December 2011; however, the fourth supplementary budget approval by the National Diet is required before becoming effective.

 The vehicles applicable to the Eco-car Tax Break accounted for 79.4% of total new vehicle sales (till October 2011), up by 4.2% from 75.2% in 2010.

Passenger car market: Nissan surpasses Honda to second place; imported cars' share expands

 The East Japan Great Earthquake had a negative effect on the total Japanese passenger car sales volume; it was down by 16.3% over the previous year to 3.525 million units in 2011. Of the sales volume, non-mini vehicles declined by 18.5% to 2.386 million units and mini vehicles by 11.4% to 1.139 million units. Noteworthy is that sales volume of Toyota Group and Honda steeply declined by 21.6% and 20.6%, respectively, over the previous year. Nissan and Suzuki held a sales drop at 9.1% and 9.6%, respectively, after the great earthquake; these were due to Nissan's quick recovery from the diminished production and Suzuki's remodeled key models. Sales volume for "others," most of which were imports, increased by 9.9% to 204K units.

 Accordingly, the 2011 passenger car market share ranking was shuffled. Nissan increased its share by 1.2 percentage point to14.6%. Nissan surpassed Honda (lost 0.8 percentage point to 13.5%) to second place for the first time in four years. Suzuki also grew by 0.9 percentage point to 12.4% and was within 1.1 percentage point to Honda which ranked third. Toyota had a 42.8% share, down by 2.9 percentage point over the previous year. The share of "others," consisting mostly of imported vehicles, was up by 1.4 percentage point to 5.8%.

Auto fleet is slightly up to 73.859 million units at the end of 2010, while mini car fleet continues to rise
