New car sales in Poland are down 9% year-on-year in August to 20,710 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 213,299 units, up 3% on 2011. Note that from 2012 onwards commercial vehicles are included which explains the total sales discrepancy with 2011 Polish BSCB articles. The Skoda Octavia is in pole position again with 1,002 sales and 4.8% share, up 16% year-on-year. Its 2012 year-to-date total stands at 11,991 units and 5.6%, also up 16% on 2011. The Toyota Yaris climbs into 2nd place this month, a position it had not held since March 2010 and only its third time at that level in the last 4 years! It sells 664 units for a 3.2% share and ranks #4 year-to-date at 2.5%.

Honda Civic

The Skoda Fabia is back up one spot to #3 with 511 sales and 2.5%, down 15% year-on-year and still well below its 2012 year-to-date level (3.4%). The Opel Astra is down 2 ranks to #4, ahead of the Nissan Qashqai, stable at #5, the VW Golf up 5 to #6 and the Dacia Duster down one to #7. Notice also the Fiat Ducato up 6 to #8 and the Honda Civic brilliantly breaking into the Polish Top 10 at #9 thanks to 405 sales for a mighty 2% market share vs. #23 and 1.1% year-to-date...

ZX Auto Grand Tiger

Further down, the Hyundai i30 continues its progression to #13 vs. #20 ytd, the Ford Transit is up 14 spots on July to #24, the Suzuki Swift up 32 to #27, the Skoda Citigo up 4 to a best-ever #29, the Kia Rio up 20 to #31, the VW Jetta up 25 to #41, the BMW 3 Series up 30 to #59, the Audi Q5 up 49 to #62, the Mercedes GLK stable at an outstanding #75 and the Dacia Lodgy  and Citroen DS5 making their first appearance in the Polish Top 100 at #90 and #100 respectively. Other Polish particularities include the locally-built FS-Lublin Pasagon up to 15 sales (65% of its 2012 total) and the ZX Auto Grand Tiger at 3 units and 16 year-to-date compared to 24 over the Full Year 2011.

    Yes Antek that’s true it has to be taken anyway as positive! In italy ipsilon/panda are 1 by 2 but lancia has a long history here. Prices makes difference in this hard segment! Voyager is a great car sales will be stable , Delta is a car i love/i hate and Thema against Germans domination i don’t think will do any better :)

    @ant

    Lancia is still kind of exotic brand in PL but they did huge progress recent time.
    Market share is already comparable to France, Spain etc and is growing.

    Re Ypsilon – I think the problem is it’s the smallest car in segment B. Polish buyers still take care of practical aspect. It’s also not cheap. Same problem is with Fiat 500, that’s why Panda (leader in A segment) outsells 500 almost 10:1.

    What is nice is stable sales of Delta (no decline at all like in other markets), good progress of Voyager and not bad results for Thema if we concider market size.
