Very strong results for the Slovak new car market in 2014, up 10% year-on-year to 78,107 registrations. In the models ranking, an immobile podium hides vastly different evolutions: the Skoda Octavia holds onto the pole position by the skin of its teeth, with sales down 3% to 4,096 units and 5.2% share. The Skoda Fabia, boosted by discounts on the outgoing generation, is up 7% to finish the year at 4,031 sales for an identical 5.2% share, and the Skoda Rapid benefits from the addition of the Spaceback version to lift its deliveries by 53% on 2013 to 3,942 units and 5% share! A very close finish in Slovakia in 2014 indeed.
