Thanks to our new partnership with local outlet Promocija Plus, we can share with you today Croatian data for November. New car sales continue to gallop ahead, up 23.7% year-on-year this month to 3.496 units, meaning the year-to-date volume is now up 19.7% to 48.624 registrations. Ford brilliantly takes the brands leadership thanks to sales up 6-fold on November 2016 to a gargantuan 17.6% share, to be compared with the 6.9% it holds YTD. Traditional leader Volkswagen is knocked down to 2nd place with 10.1% of the market (-12%) vs. 14% so far this year. Hyundai (+11%), Renault (+4%) and Suzuki (+13%) follow but all trail the market, whereas Dacia (+25%), Citroen (+27%) and Kia (+43%) beat it in the Top 10. Skoda tumbles down 40% to #8 but remains #2 YTD (+37%). Other great performers include Mazda (+40%), BMW (+63%), Smart (+100%) and Fiat (+1160%).
In the models ranking, Ford’s domination is glaring: the Focus is up a whopping 685% to hit a best-ever 13.9% share while the Kuga leaps from outside the October Top 20 directly into third place with 2.9% share. The VW Golf for its part is up seven spots on last month and 64% year-on-year to #2, the Hyundai i20 is up 244% to #5 and the Dacia Duster up 186% to #6. Leader year-to-date, the Skoda Octavia crumbles 30% to #7 this month.
