At 53,296 registrations in 2014, the Slovenian new car market is up an encouraging 6% on 2013. Momentous event in the brands ranking: Volkswagen topples perennial leader Renault thanks to sales up 16% to 8,456 and 15.9% vs. 7,815 and 14.7% (-5%) for the French manufacturer. Skoda jumps on the podium with deliveries up 41% to 4,951, followed by Opel (+15%), Peugeot (-8%) and Citroen (-6%). Dacia more than doubles its sales (+126%) to leap up directly to 7th place. Notice also Nissan up 32%, Seat up 28%, Suzuki up 70% and Porsche up 60%.

Dacia Duster Slovenia 2014. Picture courtesy of largus.frThe Duster helps push Dacia up to #7 brand in Slovenia in 2014.

However there is no such earthquake in the models ranking: the Renault Clio keeps the lead for the 17th year in a row despite sales down 9% to 3,597 and 6.7% share, potentially eroded by the tremendous success of the Captur breaking into the annual Slovenian Top 5 this year at #5 with 1,392 sales, its best ranking outside of France. The Captur even outsold the Clio in January when it ranked third overall! The 2014 podium is completed by two VWs: the Golf up 11% (#1 in April, August and September) and the Polo up 42% (#1 in January and May).

VW Golf Sportsvan Slovenia 2014. Picture courtesy of automibile-magazine.frThe VW Golf Sportsvan ranked #6 in August.

In a Top 10 (34.8%) weighting more than in 2013 (33.6%) and 2012 (29.7%) in a rare case of consolidation in Slovenia, the Dacia Duster takes off at +173% and up 19 spots to a splendid 6th place and the Skoda Rapid is up 29 ranks and 187% to lodge its first annual Top 10 ranking in Slovenia at #9. Notice also the Dacia Sandero up 87% to #12, the Nissan Juke up 98% to #13, Seat Leon up 71% to #15, Fiat Panda up 73% to #18 and the Skoda Yeti up 117% to #22. The VW Golf Sportsvan is by far the most successful new launch of 2014 here, landing directly at #25 and peaking at #6 in August, followed by the Citroen C4 Cactus at #94.

Far from a frank reprise, the Slovenian new car market has been oscillating between negative and positive territory over the past few months. September is in the black at +11% to 4.426 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 40.569 units, up 2% on 2013. Volkswagen and Renault top the brands ranking as they do year-to-date albeit with stronger market shares at 17.5% and 15% respectively vs. 16.2% and 13.9% year-to-date. Skoda rounds up the podium above Ford while Dacia jumps 12 spots on August to #5 with 7.4% of the market, mainly due to the Duster brilliantly landing on the podium thanks to 235 sales and 5.3% share. There is a surprise atop the models ranking: the VW Golf holds onto its throne for the 2nd time in a row and the 4th time in the past 10 months with 347 sales and 7.8% vs. 261 and 5.9% for the Renault Clio which however remains #1 year-to-date at 2,524 and 6.2% vs. 2,296 and 5.7%. The end of year will be tense for the attrition of the title of best-selling model in Slovenia… Notice also the Skoda Yeti up 8 ranks on August to #9, the VW Golf Sportsvan strong again at #12, Hyundai i20 at #14 and the locally-produced Renault Twingo up 32 spots to #18 vs. #70 year-to-date.

A weak month for the new car market in Slovenia, down 2% year-on-year in August to 3,304 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 36,143 units, up 1% on 2013. Volkswagen keeps the lead of the brands ranking at 19.6% share ahead of Renault (12.1%), Skoda (10.5%), Opel (6.9%) and Ford (5.9%). BMW is strong at #11 vs. #15 in July and #14 year-to-date.

Excellent performance of the Fiat 500 up one further rank on last month to #5 with 3.3% share, but the hero of the month is without a doubt the VW Golf Sportsvan improving again on the world-best ranking it held last month: up 11 spots to a fantastic 6th place thanks to 79 units and 2.4% share. Notice also the Hyundai i20 up 46 ranks to #10, the Ford B-Max up 24 to #19, BMW 5 Series up 10 to #32, BMW X3 up to #37 and the Citroen C4 Cactus up 13 to #57.
