The Lithuanian car market is really affected by the economic crisis: down 66% on 2008 at 7,515 registrations. But like in Estonia, one model makes a joke of this drop by gaining 411% year-on-year and multiplying its market share by 14: the Renault Megane, best-seller in Lithuania in 2009 with 526 sales and 7% share.
The Nissan Qashqai stays 2nd and improves its share to 3.6% thanks to ‘only’ 60% less sales than last year at 269 units. #1 for the last two years, the Skoda Octavia falls to #3 with 254 sales, down 79%. It is followed by the Toyota Avensis (-62%), Toyota Auris (-54%) and Peugeot 308 (-63%). Notice the Renault Scenic up 123% to #7.
