According to data shared with us by our partner CE Auto, new car sales in Serbia are down 1.2% year-on-year in September to 1.921 registrations, leading to a year-to-date total up 13.7% to 22.821 units. Local publication Vrele Gume has these figures at 1.917 and 21.940 respectively. Fiat remains the most popular carmaker in the country but drops a harsh 27% year-on-year to 16.5% share, still way above the 13.6% it commands year-to-date. Skoda (-4%) and VW (-14%) round up the podium while Opel (+22%), Renault (+56%), Dacia (+27%), Mercedes (+74%) and Toyota (+19%) all post spectacular gains. Model-wise, after a month of August dominated by the Skoda Rapid and Rapid Spaceback due to a large police order, the Serbian ranking gets back to some kind of normalcy in September with the locally-produced Fiat 500L in the lead. The Opel Corsa is up four spots on last month to a brilliant 2nd place and the Skoda Superb is up 27% to #3. The Dacia Sandero is back inside the Top 10 at #6 while the Fiat Tipo makes its first appearance of 2017 at #7.

Serbia August 2017: Police order pushes Skoda Rapid to 21.6% share

* See the Top 35 brands and Top 10 models by clicking on the title *

According to data shared with us by our partner CE Auto, new car sales in Serbia are up 24% year-on-year in August to 2.355 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total up 15% to 20.900. Local publication Vrele Gume has these figures at 2.030 and 20.023 respectively. The August Serbian sales charts are biased by a large order of 710 Skoda Rapid and Rapid Spaceback by the national police force whose delivery has kicked off this month as is shown in the above video. This unusual order pushes the Rapid to 16.6% market share for the month while the Rapid Spaceback has 5% of the market in 2nd place. Below, the locally-produced Fiat 500L, still #1 year-to-date, drops 40% to #3 but the Renault Clio is up 121% to #4. The Opel Corsa, Citroen C3 and VW Caddy also break into the Serbian Top 10 in August. The brands ranking published by Vrele Gume bizarrely doesn’t take into account the special Police order, only allocating 209 sales to Skoda (-10%) whereas the Rapid clocked up a total 509 units this month. This retains Skoda in 2nd place below Fiat (-11%), with Volkswagen (+33%), Renault (-9%) and Opel (+6%) rounding up the Top 5. Peugeot (+52%), Jeep (+100%), Mini (+125%), Mercedes (+145%), Suzuki (+171%), Land Rover (+200%) and Citroen (+236%) post the most spectacular gains this month.

According to data published by our Central European data partner CE Auto, new car sales in Serbia are up 1% year-on-year to 2.315 registrations, leading to a year-to-date total up 14% to 18.518 units. Local publication Vrele Gume, which reports brand sales in the country, has these figures at 2.531 and 17.993 respectively. This month Skoda (+7%) overtakes local producer and traditional leader Fiat at 12.5% share vs. 11.6% (-15%) for the Italian carmaker. Volkswagen (+82%) is also nipping at Fiat’s heels with a 11.2% share. In 4th place, Citroen shoots up 7-fold compared to July 2016 thanks to a one-off stunning score by the Berlingo, equal #1 with the Fiat 500L this month, while the C3 soars to #4, making its first Serbian Top 10 appearance since BSCB started following this market monthly in 2014. Ford (+32%), Dacia (+20%) and Audi (+78%) also impress near the top of the ranking. Model-wise, the Kia Cee’d (#5), Audi A3 (#8) and Skoda Rapid (#10) also punch well above their YTD weight.

According to our Central European data partner CE Auto and local publication Vrelegume.rs, the Serbian new car market is up a stunning 20% year-on-year in 2016 to 27.194 registrations. Fiat trails the market with a 18% gain but this is enough to take the brands lead with 15.9% share and pass last year’s leader Skoda up just 0.3% to 13.8% of the market. Volkswagen (+14%) rounds up the podium like a year ago while Renault is up three spots and 65% to #4. Opel (+29%), Dacia (+22%) and most strikingly Hyundai (+201%) also outpace the market inside the Top 10. Further down, notice Porsche (+37%), Volvo (+43%), Alfa Romeo (+46%), Peugeot (+66%) and Seat (+392%) also posting spectacular gains.

Model-wise, the Fiat 500L – assembled locally in the Kragujevac Fiat factory – holds onto the pole position for the second year running and the third time overall (add 2013) despite seeing its sales drop 6% to 1.709. The Skoda Octavia gains 8% and one spot to climb to 2nd place overall, while the Opel Astra posts a new generation-boosted 55% surge to land on the third step of the podium vs. #6 in 2015. Both nameplates knock the Skoda Fabia (-31%) down two spots to #4. The Dacia Sandero soars 26% but is down to #5, with the Skoda Superb at a very satisfying +30%. The Hyundai i30, Renault Clio and Hyundai Tucson all break into the Serbian Top 10 for 2016. Finally, notice the Fiat Tipo sliding into the monthly Top 10 twice: in May (#10) and December (#9), making Serbia the third country in the world where it has done so so far alongside Italy and Turkey where it is sold as the Egea.
