In the 4.5-7.5t GVM divi­sion, FUSO (102/28) held onto its lead – just! Isuzu (101/28) also sold 28 for the month, to re­main just one reg­is­tra­tion be­hind YTD. Third-placed Iveco (52/16) held its spot, as did Hino (36/14), in fourth po­si­tion. Mercedes-Benz (17/3) was joined in fifth-equal by Fo­ton (17/4).

In the 7.5-15t GVM class, Isuzu (147/24) edged fur­ther ahead with the sub­stan­tial lead it had al­ready cre­ated in the first four months of the year. Hino (57/22) over­took FUSO (52/10) for se­cond. Next came Iveco (16/4), UD (6/2), Fo­ton (5/3), MAN (3/1) and Mercedes-Benz (3/1) – all hold­ing their places.

In the 15-20.5t GVM cat­e­gory, Hino (37/13) stretched its lead, while se­cond-placed UD (16/4) edged clear of FUSO (14/1). Sca­nia (9/2) held fourth – but only by one from Mercedes-Benz (8/2).

In the tiny 20.5-23t GVM divi­sion Hino (11/3) in­creased its lead on FUSO (4/0) and Freight­liner (1/0). Sca­nia (1/0) joined the cat­e­gory.

In the pre­mium 23t to max GVM divi­sion, Volvo (140/31) went fur­ther ahead of se­cond-placed Sca­nia (99/24). Isuzu (85/16) was third, ahead of Ken­worth (65/15). Hino (55/13) caught FUSO (55/7), leav­ing the two fifth-equal.

Mercedes-Benz (49/17), UD (39/12) and DAF (37/10) each held their places, while Sinotruk (28/12) moved up to 10th, past Iveco (27/7) and MAN (22/1).

In the trailer mar­ket, Frue­hauf (42/11) and MTE (41/13) closed in on 2020 mar­ket leader Patchell (44/6).

Still, the YTD po­si­tions were un­changed through­out the top 10, with Road­mas­ter (33/6) hold­ing onto fourth, ahead of Domett (30/8), TMC (25/5) and Freighter (23/9). TES (20/9) was eighth, while Trans­port Trail­ers (16/4) and Trans­fleet (16/5) were ninth-equal.
