So Renault is aiming the new Twingo at the number 2 mini car volume spot in Europe. I wonder where the 108 is going to fall?

Consider the 2013 volume numbers

Fiat 500: 160,015
Fiat Panda: 152,404
Volkswagen Up: 129,754
Renault Twingo: 77,714
Toyota Aygo: 63,770
Hyundai i10: 61,425
Citroen C1: 56,786
Peugeot 107: 55,242
Kia Picanto: 50,213
Ford Ka: 50,213

I think Peugeot does suffer slightly because of the twin identities of Citroens and Peugeots so quite enough sales seem to be diverted to the Citroen brand. I just wonder where the 108 is going to end up on that chart? Do you think the 108 will even be able to top its siblings the C1 and the Aygo?

I think the 108 would be good if it got up to Toyotas level

I dont see it taking 1 or 2. Too far of a stretch

well I think the big problem is that the car is sold under two sister brands. In the US GM sells their overwrought pickup trucks under two brands, if they sold them as one they would have the top sales figure.

Citroen C1: 56,786
Peugeot 107: 55,242

Total: 111,028 which would be good for fourth spot...

Good point. At first when I got into GM vehicles I never understood why they did that, maybe in the future they could be doing this, merging the two brands and chopping some along the way, leaving Pontiac as not the only GM brand to be chopped.
