As usual one month delay for Slovak data. New car sales in Slovakia are down just 2% year-on-year in May to 7,810 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 28,077 units, down 8% on 2012. Note these figures include LCVs which explains the discrepancy with my articles from one year ago. The Skoda Fabia is once again the most popular model in the country thanks to 336 sales and 4.3% however its year-to-date total is down a painful 30% on last year to 1,727 units and 6.2%, losing 2 percentage points of market share.
The Skoda Octavia III logically replaces the II in 2nd place this month, up 5 spots on April to reach 296 sales and 3.8%. The Skoda Rapid remains #3 in May with 240 sales and 3.1% but is now #2 year-to-date at 1,052 units and 3.7%, passing the Octavia II. Notice also the Opel Astra IV up 7 ranks to #6 and 2.3%, the Renault Fluence up from outside the Top 25 to #11 and the Peugeot 301 up to #18.
