Thanks to Rutger it looks like the Republic of Macedonia will now become a monthly update on BSCB, with local car website Auto Plus now regularly publishing a Top 10 models and brands… October new car sales in the country are down 31% year-on-year to 315 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 3,497 units, down a similarly daunting 33% on 2011. Very small figures mean very volatile models ranking and the Opel Astra only needs 21 sales for a 6.7% market share to take the lead this month ahead of the Skoda Fabia at 12 and the Dacia Duster, Peugeot Bipper and VW Passat all at 11.
Year-to-date, the VW Golf is in the lead by far with 214 units and 6.1% share, ahead of the Opel Astra at 149 and 4.3%, the VW Polo at 124, VW Passat at 121 and Skoda Fabia at 119. The brands ranking is much more stable, with Volkswagen the runaway winner both this month and year-to-date with 13.3% and 15.7% share respectively, followed each time by Skoda (8.9% and 7.9%) and Opel (8.3% and 6.7%).
