German car maker BMW dominated the new car market in Belgium in 2022, according to figures published by Fédération Belge de l'Automobile & du Cycle (Febiac), reports Belga and RTL.

A total of 38,011 new cars made by the Bavarian car manufacturer were sold during 2022, which represents 10.38 % of the market in Belgium. The luxury car maker experienced a 2.44% drop compared to previous years, but continued to hold the top-ranking spot.

Making up the top three, are Volkswagen and Mercedes with respectively 32,061 and 29,283 new car sales. Behind this German trio, was French brand Peugeot, which ended the year with 29,140 sales, while Audi reported 26,253 sales.

Other companies such as Tesla and Toyota, experienced a staggering increase in their 2022 sales, 46.81% and 34.60% respectively, while Dacia saw a 10.02% rise.

Overall statistics show a different story, however, as new car sales have fallen by 4.39 % to 366,303, the lowest level since 1995.
