I can happily report that Polish new car sales are back in positive territory in April, up 1% year-on-year to 27,140 registrations, which brings the year-to-date total to 111,839 units, down 2% on 2012. After an eventful month of March, Skoda reclaims the Top 2 positions but as it has been the case since the beginning of 2013, it’s the Skoda Fabia that has the advantage once again, selling 1,082 units for a solid 4% market share vs. 829 and 3.1% for the Skoda Octavia. Year-to-date, the Fabia is at 4,386 and 3.9% vs. 3,577 and 3.2% for the Octavia…
Outstanding month for the Renault Clio, up 9 spots on March to land on the third step of the podium thanks to 739 sales and 2.7%. This is by far the Clio’s best ranking in Poland in at least 5 years…so clearly the 4th generation of the model has been extremely well received here. The Toyota Auris is down one rank to a still excellent 4th place while the Opel Astra, even though it only ranks #6 this month, is now up to #3 year-to-date like in 2012.
Other great performers in April in Poland include the Hyundai i30 up 4 spots to #12, the Kia Cee’d still very robust at #14, the Toyota RAV4 up 8 ranks to #16, Honda CR-V up 15 to #20 and the Skoda Rapid maintaining itself at #21. Finally, the Peugeot 301 breaks into the Polish Top 50 for the very first time, up 16 spots on March to #47 with 187 sales.
