The Slovenian new car market gains 25.5% year-on-year in August to 5.636 registrations, lifting the year-to-date volume up 9.7% to 53.559 units. Renault soars 52% to 18.4% share vs. 14.4% YTD, snapping the lead of the brands ranking off Volkswagen (+27%) at 14.1% vs. 16.9% so far in 2018. Fiat (+249%), Seat (+35%) and Toyota (+30%) also beat the market in the Top 10, Peugeot (+24%) matches it, Citroen (+6%) and Hyundai (+2%) are slow and Opel (-8%) goes in reverse. Further down the ladder, Jeep (+3900%!), Alfa Romeo (+533%), Volvo (+250%), Porsche (+217%), Mini (+100%), Nissan (+92%), Audi (+49%), Kia (+41%) and Seat (+35%) for the most part give off a distinct pre-WLTP stock clearance flavour to the market. Model-wise, the Renault Captur (+198%), Clio (+81%) and Megane (-29%) monopolise the podium and justify the brand’s leadership, followed by four VWs: the Tiguan (+70%), Polo (+343%), Golf (-27%) and T-Roc scoring a 2nd month in a row at a record 7th place. The Nissan Qashqai (+857%), Jeep Renegade (+3600%) and Fiat 500 (+3567%) also score unusually high sales results.
