Today we update both May and June data for the Republic of Macedonia, thanks to Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu. In May the Macedonian new car market is up a splendid 27% year-on-year to 452 registrations and the Citroen C-Elysée surprises everyone by snatching the pole position with 7.3% share whereas it hadn’t ranked inside the Macedonian Top 10 since last November (#10). The Hyundai ix35 is #2 for the second month running but holds onto its #1 year-to-date spot at a comfortable 6.8% share, now distancing the VW Passat at 4.7%. The Ford Fiesta (#3) and Kia Sportage (#5) are strong while the Dacia Duster (#6) reappears inside the Top 10 and the April leader, the Skoda Octavia, tumbles down to #7.

In June, the market is up an even more impressive 43% year-on-year to 561 deliveries, lifting the year-to-date total halfway through the year to 2.519 units, up 19% on 2014. This time the Dacia Sandero shoots up from out of the May Top 10 directly to the top spot with 4.8%, sharing the highest honours with the Skoda Rapid who by the same token reclaims the #2 year-to-date rank off the VW Passat. The Hyundai ix35 continues to be slightly subdued at 4.5% share but is still the year-to-date leader at 6.3%. Leader in May, the Citroen C-Elysée lodges a second consecutive month inside the Top 10 at an excellent 4th place and is now #10 year-to-date, the VW Golf is back up to #7 and the Peugeot 208 up to #9.
