The Slovenian new car market confirms it is now back in shape, delivering its third consecutive month of year-on-year growth at a very healthy +17% in June to 5,845 registrations, which brings the year-to-date total up to an almost identical level compared to the first 6 months of 2012 at 28,229 units, down 0.3%.
