According to Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, the Moldovan new car market is down a harsh 23% year-on-year in June to 270 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 1.721 units, down an equally depressing 25% on 2014. For the first time since BSCB has started following Moldova monthly in 2013, it is not a Dacia that appears atop the sales charts but the Skoda Octavia, up 6 spots on May to brilliantly land in pole position with 7.8% market share and now #2 year-to-date at 4.2%. The Dacia Logan is outsold this time at 7% but remains in the lead by far in 2015 at 150 deliveries and 8.7% of the market. Notice also the Toyota RAV4 jumping up to #3, the Dacia Dokker at #4, Iveco Daily at #6, BMW X5 at #7 and Porsche Cayenne at #10.

According to Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, the Moldovan new car market is down a harsh 23% year-on-year in May to a round 300 registrations, pulling the year-to-date total down 28% to 1.402 units. No threat for the Dacia Logan in pole position with a majestic 11.3% market share, however the #2 spot is a surprise: the antediluvian UAZ 3909, in production since 1965 (that’s 50 continuous years), holds 4.7% of the market – granted, only 14 sales were enough to achieve this. It’s the first time the UAZ 3909 (aka Bukhanka, Russian for loaf of bread) makes its appearance in the Moldovan monthly Top 10 since BSCB started following this country two years ago. Notice also the BMW X5 up to a stunning 5th place with 4% share and now #10 year-to-date.

According to data communicated by Central European market specialists CE Auto, new car sales in Moldava are in freefall this year: down 43% in March to just 273 registrations and 33% over the first quarter to 763 deliveries. Overtaken by its SUV stablemate the Duster last month, the Dacia Logan reclaims its traditional Moldovan throne in March with 8.1% share while the Duster steps out of the Top 10 altogether, allowing the Skoda Octavia and Rapid onto the podium. Notice also the Range Rover at #7 an the BMW X5 at #10.

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 19701991 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

Moldova 2011: Dacia Logan best-seller, Skoda Superb #5

Moldova 2012: Dacia Logan and Chevy Aveo dominate

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.
