My call for help has been heard! Thanks to Matěj and auto.cz I can share with you Czech data this month. The market is up a fantastic 13% year-on-year in January to 13,638 registrations, and the Skoda Octavia remains by far the favourite thanks to 1,805 sales and 13.2% while the Skoda Rapid is back up to #2 at a strong 832 units and 6.1%, its best market share in the country since last August. Reversely, after diving under the 5% milestone for the first time last month, the Skoda Fabia tumbles down even further in January, lodging its first ever month below 4% share at 3.8%, down 34% year-on-year. The VW Golf is back up 2 spots to #4 and the Hyundai i30 is down 3 to #5.
But the big news this month in the Czech models ranking is the arrival of the Dacia Logan/Sandero couple in the Top 10 for the first time. Czech website Auto.cz does not separate the two models indeed which earned them a #14 spot over the Full Year 2013, and a 7th position both last December and this month thanks to 354 sales and 2.6% share, up 149% on January 2013. Other great performers in January in the Czech Republic include the Skoda Roomster up 56% year-on-year to #8, the Skoda Citigo up 46% to #12, Seat Ibiza up 64% to #13, Honda CR-V up 116% to #17, Seat Leon up 148% to #18 and the Peugeot 308 up 100% to #20.
