In March, 308 new vehicles found a buyer in Macedonia, bringing the year-to-date total to 968 units. Surprise on top: the Skoda Rapid celebrates its first pole position anywhere in the world thanks to 24 sales and 7.8% share, equal with the VW Golf. Granted, it’s a small market, but still an interesting achievement for the Czech model. Year-to-date, the Skoda Yeti is still by far the most popular model at 159 units and 16.4% solely thanks to deliveries to the Ministry of Interior. Notice also the Renault Fluence and Mitsubishi Colt both holding well at #5 and #7 respectively, the Lada Niva up to #8 and the Citroen C-Elysee making its first appearance in the Macedonian monthly Top 10 at #10.

New car sales in Macedonia are down 8% year-on-year in February to 273 registrations, however thanks to the 150-strong order of National Police Skoda Yetis delivered in January, the market is still up 5% on 2012 year-to-date at 708 units. The VW Golf reclaims its traditional pole position this month thanks to 25 sales and an excellent 9.2% share, but the Skoda Yeti, even if down to just one unit in February, is still leader year-to-date by far with 156 sales and 22% vs. 43 and 6.1% for the Golf.

As early as for its first month in market, the Skoda Rapid brilliantly manages to climb into 2nd place at 18 units and 6.6%, a better score than at home in Czech Republic which is, granted, a much more sizeable market. The VW Passat remains #3 with 12 sales and 4.4% equal with the Skoda Octavia while the Renault Fluence (#5), Mitsubishi Colt (#7) and Fiat Linea (#9) also shine.
