Slovenian car sales stay at a level way inferior as last year in July, down 13% year-on-year to 4,105 registrations and bringing the year-to-date total to 32,432 units, down 14% on 2011. Big surprise on top: the Renault Scenic grabs the pole position of the models ranking for the first time ever in the country thanks to 224 sales for an outstanding 5.5% market share. It is now #9 year-to-date at 2% share vs. #16 in 2011.
#1 last month, the Renault Megane is kicked down to second place with a still very respectable 213 units and 5.2% share, above its 2012 year-to-date level of 4.5%. The Renault Clio, traditional leader in Slovenia, is down one spot to #3 with 194 sales and 4.7% but stays in the top spot year-to-date with 1,879 sales and 5.8%. And yes you have read it right, Renault monopolises the Slovenian podium in July with the Scenic, Megane and Clio! A feat it has only achieved once in the last 14 years in France, let alone internationally…
Other great performers this month include the Ford Focus up 17 spots on June to #6, the Kia Cee’d up 3 to #8, the Peugeot 208 breaking into the Slovenian Top 10 for the first time, up 14 ranks to #10, the Skoda Yeti up 32 to #12, the Citroen C3 up 20 to #14, the Hyundai ix35 up 22 to #16, the Renault Kangoo up 30 to #18 and the Citroen DS3 up to a best-ever #24 with 47 sales and 1.1% share.
