The Citroen C3 is the #1 in Slovakia in April – but there’s a trick…
New car sales in Slovakia plummet down -61.5% year-on-year in April to 3.424 units, the lowest monthly volume since January 2003 (3.527). The year-to-date tally is now down -31.7% to 22.390. Skoda (-56.3%) stays very close to its YTD market share at 22.5% vs. 22.3%, with Volkswagen (-61.4%), Hyundai (-59.3%) and Kia (-53.3%) in tow like YTD and in 2019. In fact, with Toyota (-35%) scoring the best hold in the Top 20 and Peugeot (-61.1%), the Top 6 brands is identical to the YTD order. BMW (-39.5%) and Citroen (-49.1%) also stand out in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Dacia (-73.3%) and Opel (-70.8%) sink. Further down, Ssangyong (+425%) goes completely against the grain but only sells 21 units. All other brands bar Subaru (-40%), Mini (-52.6%) and Seat (-53.7%), lose over 60% year-on-year.
The Skoda Scala is #1 so far in 2020 in Slovakia…but there’s also a trick.
