New car sales in Slovenia are up 5% on a very difficult 2012 to 50,678 registrations, and if the most popular model is the Renault Clio for the 16th consecutive year thanks to sales up a fantastic 36% to 3,944 and 7.8% share, there is a lot of change below. Firstly let’s notice a very rare case of ‘de-fragmentation’ in Slovenia this year: the Top 10 models account for 33.6% of the market vs. 29.4% in 2012… This is because many best-sellers display explosive growth in 2013, starting with the VW Golf up 77% and two spots year-on-year to land in second place with 2,551 units and 5%, even topping the monthly charts in December.
The Renault Clio celebrates 16 consecutive years atop the Slovenian sales charts.
The Kia Cee’d is the best performing model in the Top 10, doubling its sales vs. 2012 and up 9 ranks to third position with 1,811 sales and 3.6% share, even threatening the Clio for pole position in August. It is followed by the VW Polo down one to #4, the Renault Scenic up 56% to #5 and #1 in September and the Skoda Octavia up 12% but down one spot to #6. Other great performers this year in Slovenia include the Kia Sportage up 7 ranks to #12, Hyundai i30 up 28% to #13, Citroen C4 up 58% to #16, Fiat 500 up an incredible 641% to #19, the Ford B-Max landing at #26 for its first full year of sales and the Seat Leon up 181% to #31.
The Renault Captur is the most successful all-new model of 2013 in Slovenia.
The best-selling all new model this year is by far the Renault Captur, landing directly at a splendid 14th place which is its 2nd best worldwide ranking in 2013 after France! It sells 748 units for a 1.5% market share and even broke into the monthly Top 5 in November… Below we have the Skoda Rapid at #38 (but #4 in December), Fiat 500L at #42, Citroen C-Elysee at #55 and the Peugeot 2008 at #75.
