240 new vehicles found a buyer in Moldova in January, and the small size of this market always makes for an interesting models ranking. Below the Dacia Logan, traditional leader at 8.8% share, we find the Opel Insignia at #2, also making its first appearance in the Moldovan Top 10 since BSCB started following it monthly almost two years ago. Dacia also places the Duster and Dokker at equal #4 but the quirks in the ranking this month are delivered by the Porsche Cayenne at #5 (albeit with just 8 units sold) and the Range Rover at #7 with 7 sales. Moldovan car buyers do have posh tastes.

Historical info spanning the past five decades is now available for Moldova on BSCB! For the 1970-1991 period, the data is for USSR which Moldova belonged to then, and Lada models reigned supreme. I have no available data for Moldova between 1992 and 2010, so please get in touch if you do. The Dacia Logan has been the best-seller in Moldova for at least the past 4 years.

Moldova Historical Info:

USSR 1970-1979: Lada 2101-3 conquers the Soviet roads

USSR 1980-1986: Lada 2106 and Moskvich 2140 likely leaders

USSR 1987: Lada 2106 and Moskvich 2140 fight it off

USSR 1988: Lada 2106 leads, Samara on podium

USSR 1989-1991: VAZ (Lada) and Izh most popular brands

According to data shared by Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, the Moldovan new car market is up a very vigorous 16% year-on-year in 2014 to 5,020 registrations. The Dacia Logan improves faster than the market to cement its leadership at 15.2% share, up 47% on 2013, while the Dacia Duster remains #2 but with sales up ‘just’ 10%, sees its share slide to 4.8%. The Skoda Octavia reclaims its spot on the podium at #3, knocking the Rapid down to #4, the Hyundai Santa Fe lands at #5 and the Dacia Logan MCV at #7, lifting the Logan family market share to 17.5% in Moldova.

Based on data published by Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, 711 new cars found a buyer in Moldova in October, a massive 151% improvement on September bringing the year-to-date total to 3,944 registrations. This is fact due to 4 models each grabbing an extravagant market share: the Dacia Logan is at 31.2% thanks to 222 sales, the Opel Movano literally comes out of nowhere (zero sales before October) directly to 2nd place with 100 sales and 14.1% share, the Dacia Duster holds 12.1% thanks to 86 units and shoots up to #2 year-to-date like in 2013 while the Skoda Rapid ranks 4th with 48 sales and 6.8% to climb to #3 YTD, here too replicating its FY 2013 ranking. Finally notice the Porsche Cayenne amazingly ranking inside the Top 10 at #8 with 1.4% share.

And for the first time since BSCB started following this country monthly, neighbour manufacturer Dacia monopolises the podium with the Logan in the lead by far at 11.6% share ahead of the Duster at 7.2% and the Dokker making its first appearance in the Moldovan Top 10 (let alone the podium) at #3 and 6.4% share.

According to Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, 352 new light vehicles changed hands in Moldova in June, bringing the half-year total to 2,300 units, up a whopping 42% year-on-year. As it has been the case ever since BSCB started reporting sales for this country (2011), the Dacia Logan is by far the most popular model here with 45 sales and 12.8% this month and 323 and 14% year-to-date. The June ranking is unique once again, the benefit of dealing with a very small market: the Hyundai Santa Fe shoots up to 2nd place with 6.5% share ahead of the Lada Niva at 5.4% and the BMW X5 very impressive in 4th position at 4.3% of the market. Then again only 15 sales were needed to reach that level. Even though it is down to #6 in June, the Skoda Superb remains #2 so far in 2014 above the Santa Fe and Octavia.
