No surprise: November is a new all-time record in the Czech Republic with 20.421 registrations, up 25% on the previous record established just last year (16.365) and only the fifth time in Czech history that more than 20.000 new vehicles are registered in a single month after last March, April, June and July. This means that for the first time ever, the Czech new car market breaks the symbolic 200.000 annual sales at 211.089, up 20% on 2014 and with one month to spare before the end of the year. Keep in mind though that roughly 17% of all new car registrations in the Czech Republic are immediately re-exported towards other European Union nations. Brand-wise, local carmaker Skoda follows the market at +25% to 31.2% share, Volkswagen is weaker at +15% to 9.2% and Hyundai is catching up at +29% to 9.1% share. Dacia struggles (-2%) but parent brand Renault shines (+41%).
Model-wise, the Skoda Octavia ends four consecutive months of Skoda Fabia reign thanks to a very strong 12% share and 2.454 sales (+27%) vs. 1.679 and 8.2% (+126%). The Skoda Rapid is stable in third position, the Hyundai i30 is up 63% to #4, the Skoda Superb up 79% to #5 and the VW Passat up 212% to #8. Further down, the Hyundai Tucson breaks into the Top 20 at #19, the Suzuki Vitara gains a further two spots on October to #25 and the Renault Kadjar is up four to #42.
