Excellent start of the year for new car sales in Bulgaria, up 11% to an estimated 1,903 deliveries. First the usual caveat to Bulgarian data which are significantly skewed by re-exports to other European Union countries. A large portion of new deliveries never makes it to local roads – as much as 30% – thanks to Bulgaria displaying some of the lowest car prices in the EU. See here for more on this phenomenon. In this context, Renault triumphs this month with 275 sales and 14.5% share, over 25% of which being an exceptionally high score from the Renault Master, #1 in the models ranking with 123 sales and 6.5% vs. 262 sales and 1% over the FY2014. This sounds very much like a re-export order. The Skoda Octavia ranks #2 like last year and the Renault Captur is up to a brilliant third spot above the Clio and the Dacia Sandero. Leader in 2013 and 2014, the Dacia Dokker is down to #8 this month.
