The coronavirus has continued to spread steadily in Poland throughout April, with 2.311 cases as of March 31 but 12.877 as of April 30 despite lockdown measures. The new car market drops -65.9% year-on-year in April to 17.786 registrations including light commercials, pulling the year-to-date volumes down -33.6% to 138.733 units. When only taking account passenger cars, sales are down -66.9% to 14.957 for the month and down -33.7% to 120.910 YTD.

Toyota (-56.3%) resists best on the brands podium ahead of Skoda (-66.9%) and Volkswagen (-74.4%). But it’s premium fares Audi (-46.1%), BMW (-48.7%), Mercedes (-50.9%) and Volvo (#11) that post the best holds in the Top 15, with Kia (-56.9%) also “solid”.

With only passenger cars, Kia repeats at #4, BMW is up to #5 above Dacia, Volvo is up two spots on March to #10, Opel up 3 to #9 and Nissan rounds out the Top 15.

The Volvo XC60 is up to a record 8th place in the Passenger cars charts.

The Toyota RAV4 (-17%) posts the best hold in the Top 10 and climbs 5 ranks on last month to #5, equalling its January ranking record. The Volvo XC60 (-48.1%) breaks into the Polish Top 10 for the first time at #9, with the Mercedes Sprinter (-46.6%) and Renault Master (-56.1%) also solid. The BMW X3 surges to #20, the Kia Xceed breaks into the Top 30 at #27 and the Ford Puma breaks into the Top 50 at #37.

A new Top 160 Passenger Cars models is now available for Poland for the January-April 2020 period, an upgrade on our monthly Top 50. It shows the Mazda CX-30 already up to #53, the Citroen C5 Aircross at #66, the Ford Puma at #79, the Lexus UX at #113, Audi Q8 at #121, BMW X7 at #139, Mercedes GLS at #148, BMW 8 Series at #155 and Mercedes GLB at #158. Notice also strong performances by the BMW 5 Series (#56), Mercedes GLE (#59), E-Class (#60), Audi A6 (#65) and Lexus NX (#83) and surprisingly poor scores by the Suzuki Vitara (#71), VW Polo (#115) and Fiat Panda (#118), once a best-seller in Poland.

Note: Since June 2019, we also publish the Top 15 brands and Top 50 models for passenger cars excluding light commercials. Once we have built a full 12 months of data we will shift to passenger cars only to align with the rest of the EU.
