Thanks to our partnership with CE Auto, we can share with you today September data for Moldova, a market up a whopping 41.3% year-on-year to 588 registrations, lifting the year-to-date tally up 33% to 3.813 sales. It’s a freak event atop the Moldovan models ranking this month: whereas it had never reached the Top 10, the Renault Master shoots up to pole position with 10.9% share. This is the result of a donation of a fleet of 95 Renault Master minibuses by the Romanian government to be used for school transportation with the objective of connecting students living in remote areas. October will likely see another bump as only 64 of the order of 95 are accounted for this month. The year-to-date leader, the Dacia Logan, is down 21% to 5.6% share vs. 7.1% so far in 2017, ahead of the Dacia Duster (+72%), Toyota RAV4 and Skoda Superb (both at +83%). The Skoda Kodiaq remains inside the Top 10.

Thanks to our Central European market data partner CE Auto, we can share with you August data for Moldova, a market up a whopping 51% year-on-year to 473 units, lifting the year-to-date total up 31% to 3.215 sales.

It distances the traditional market leader, the Dacia Logan, by just one unit. The Skoda Octavia is up 263% to #3, the Hyundai Tucson down 11% to #4 and the Suzuki Vitara up 229% to #5. In fact, 7 of the Top 10 best-sellers are SUVs: follow the Toyota RAV4, Dacia Duster, Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage and Skoda Kodiaq – for its 2nd consecutive Top 10 ranking.

According to data published by our Central European market data partner CE Auto, new car sales in Moldova bounce up 54% year-on-year in July to 468 registrations, lifting the year-to-date tally up 29% to 2.751 units. This month the Dacia Sandero comes out of nowhere (namely outside the Top 10) to directly land in pole position with just under 10% of the market. The Romanian hatchback doesn’t rank in the YTD Top 10 however. The Hyundai Tucson posts an outstanding month at 9.2% share (+139%) and so does the Skoda Octavia at 6.4% (+150%). Traditional leader in Moldova, the Dacia Logan (-17%) is knocked down to 4th place but retains the YTD lead for now, but only 15 units above the Hyundai Tucson. The Kia Sportage also makes a rare appearance inside the Moldovan Top 10 at #5 while the Skoda Kodiaq breaks into the Top 10 for the first time at #10.

The Suzuki Vitara (+138%) and Toyota RAV4 (+100%) make it three SUVs in the Top 5, with the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross (#7) and Dacia Duster (#9) also pointing their bonnet in the Top 10 this month.

The Dacia Logan and Hyundai Tucson are equal leaders this month with 8.1% share each but it’s the Dacia Logan that holds it traditional pole position year-to-date. The Hyundai Accent confirms it is now a force to be reckoned with in third place, distancing the Ford Focus and Renault Kadjar, the latter snapping a 9th place year-to-date, higher than at home in France.

According to our Central European market data partner CE Auto, new car sales in Moldova are up 1.3% year-on-year to 237 registrations. Teasing the perennial leader the Dacia Logan all through 2016 with three monthly wins, the Hyundai Tucson brilliantly takes charge in January with 9.7% market share, distancing the Skoda Superb (7.2%) and Hyundai Accent (6.3%). The Dacia Logan is relegated to a paltry 5th position below the Suzuki Vitara with just 4.6% share and sales down 68% year-on-year. The surprise of the month in Moldova is the appearance of the über luxurious Mercedes GLS in 6th place. Granted, only 8 units were enough to reach that ranking, but still.
