Bulgaria sales see a 5% year-on-year drop in June to an estimated 3.061 registrations, however the year-to-date total is still in positive halfway through 2016 at +6% to 15.524 units. Thanks to deliveries up 35% on June 2015, Dacia remains the most popular manufacturer in the country, followed by Renault (-9%), Skoda (+3%) and Volkswagen (-24%) while Ford (+14%) rounds up the Top 5. Nissan (+36%), Land Rover (+57%), Fiat (+31%) and Volvo (+38%) shine but Kia (-51%), Mazda (-25%), Audi (-16%), Great Wall (-84%) and Seat (-67%) struggle. In the models aisle, the Dacia Dokker is back to the pole position it holds year-to-date, ahead of the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Octavia. The Opel Astra leaps 27 spots on May to #8 and the Renault Master is up 17 to #10.
A caveat to these results is the fact that Bulgaria sales figures are skewed by re-exports to other European Union countries, with a large portion of new car sales in the country never making it to local roads – as much as 20% – thanks to Bulgaria displaying some of the lowest car prices in the EU.
