Thanks to our partnership with Promocija Plus we can share with you today October Croatian data, one of the only markets in the European Union not to suffer from post-WLTP hangover. Indeed, October sales are up 10.6% year-on-year to 4.007 units, leading to a year-to-date tally up a very impressive 19.8% at 54.080 registrations. There’s definitely no WLTP impact anymore for Volkswagen soaring 73% to 19.5% share vs. 15.1% so far in 2018, even posting the second largest year-on-year gain in the Top 20 below Volvo (+200%). Citroen (+63%), Peugeot (+44%), Hyundai (+35%) and Toyota (+14%) also brilliantly outpace the market in the Top 10. In contrast, Seat (-50%), Ford (-48%), Dacia (-27%) and Suzuki (-18%) freefall. Among smaller brands, Jaguar (+500%), Jeep (+343%), Subaru (+300%), Mitsubishi (+230%) and Honda (+100%) all post extravagant gains.

Volkswagen has an iron-tight grip on the models ranking this month with the Polo (+463%) and Golf (+117%) best-sellers ahead of the Skoda Octavia (-32%) that still remains in the YTD lead. The Citroen C3 (+233%) and Renault Captur (+289%) round up the Top 5 while the VW T-Roc (#10), Hyundai Kona (#19) and Skoda Karoq (#20) make it three recent launches inside the Croatian Top 20 in October.
