The Czech new car market endures a 6th year-on-year decline in the past 8 months in June at -2.6% to 25.932 units, pulling the year-to-date volume into negative territory at -0.5% to 143.784 registrations, still the second largest H1 volume in Czech history below the 144.451 of last year. Homegrown brands leader Skoda resists better than the market at -1% to 32.5% share vs. 32.7% YTD, while Volkswagen (+7%) and Dacia (+5%) actually post gains near the top. Hyundai (-17%) and Ford (-13%) complete the Top 5 with paltry performances whereas Peugeot (+28%) and Kia (+15%) post the largest gains in the Top 10. Below, great performers include Lexus (+110%), Ferrari (+100%), Porsche (+85%), Suzuki (+48%), Jeep (+33%) and Volvo (+21%).
Over in the models ranking, Skoda holds the Top 5 spots like it does year-to-date but with one small difference: if the Octavia (-5%), Fabia (-16%), Rapid (+18%) and Superb (-23%) hold onto their traditional positions, in June it’s the Kodiaq (+78%) that remains in 5th place while its smaller brother the Karoq is down one spot on May to #8 but remains in 5th place so far in 2018. The Hyundai i30 (-18%) remains the best-selling foreign nameplate in the Czech Republic despite a stiff year-on-year drop, and is followed this month by the Dacia Duster (+72%), VW Golf (-10%), VW Tiguan (+141%) and Kia Cee’d (+20%). The VW T-Roc (#49), Ford Ecosport (#52), Kia Stonic (#58) and Hyundai Kona (#60) are the next best-selling recent launches.
