Based on data reported by Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, the Serbian new car market is up a robust 10% year-on-year in May to 2.209 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total back to positive territory at 8.907 units, up 2% on 2014. For the first time since last November, the locally-produced Fiat 500L reclaims the pole position it held over the Full Year 2013 thanks to 131 sales and 5.9%. But the fight was intense with another Fiat that we see inside the Serbian Top 10 for the first time since BSCB has been following this country monthly: the Florino, landing at #2 with 123 units and 5.6% share. The Skoda Fabia gains one spot on April to #3 and remains #1 year-to-date for now with 527 sales and 5.9% share vs. 497 and 5.6% for the Fiat 500L.

Thanks to data reported by Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, we know that the Serbian new car market is up 5% year-on-year in April to 2.202 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 6.698 units, down 5% on 2014. The Skoda Octavia takes the lead for the first time so far in 2015 thanks to 141 sales, followed closely by the locally-produced Fiat 500L at 138 deliveries but the surprise of the month is in third position: appearing inside the Serbian Top 10 for the first time since BSCB started following this country monthly two years ago, the Mazda3 sells an outstanding 130 units for a 5.9% market share, instantly earning an 8th spot in the 2015 year-to-date ranking. This looks like a bulk order from a rental car company building up to the summer touristic season. Two Skodas (Fabia and Superb) round up the Top 5 while the Kia Cee’d reappears at #8.

Difficult year for new car sales in Serbia, down 10% on 2013 to 20,240 registrations according to data communicated by Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu. Handicapped by local production idled during the year, the Fiat 500L loses the top spot it held in 2013 with sales down a devastating 48% to 1,082 units, even though it held 11% of the market in February and was #1 year-to-date up until June.

Serbia November 2014: Fiat 500L back in the monthly lead

Based on data communicated by Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, 1.422 new car sales occurred in Serbia in November, bringing the year-to-date total to 18.551 after 11 months. For the first time since last March, the locally-produced Fiat 500L is the best-seller ‘at home’ thanks to 83 deliveries for a 5.8% market share. This year’s slump was potentially due to the idling of the 500L production during summer due to slow Europe-wide sales. The 500L is now 65 units below year-to-date leader the Skoda Fabia (1.023 vs. 1.088), a gap that may prove to large to overcome in just one month in order to reclaim the pole position the 500L held over the Full Year 2013. Further down the ranking, the Hyundai ix35 is up to #5, the Fiat Doblo up to #7, the Fiat Ducato remains solid at #8 and the Fiat Punto Classic, #2 in 2013, is back inside the monthly Top 10 at #10.
