Despite significant losses, BMW remains the biggest brand on Belgium's corporate market, but Renault is edging closer to the top spot. The French brand was the biggest winner in absolute terms, registering 1,257 more units for corporate use than in the first six months of last year. 

The biggest winner in relative terms was Tesla, which gained 223.6%, for an absolute figure of 1,453 units – thanks mainly to its popular Model 3. Other brands making strong gains are Dacia (+41.4% to 3,292 units) and Seat (+33.4% to 2,628 units).
