Croatia June 2021: Opel teases Volkswagen for #1 brand in market up 67.1%

The Opel Corsa is the best-selling vehicle in Croatia in June.

New car sales in Croatia bounce back up 67.1% year-on-year in June to 6.936 units, leading to a year-to-date tally up 49.7% to 26.103. However June 2021 volumes remain down -15.8% on the pre-pandemic levels of June 2019 and down a ghastly -31.6% YTD. Volkswagen (+53%) remains the most popular brand in the country but is teased by Opel (+604.8%) up 7-fold to miss out on the top spot for just 6 sales. Skoda (+43%) is knocked down to #3 while Hyundai (+241.6%) and Peugeot (+176.2%) also post surreal gains. Seat (+216.2%), Suzuki (+113.6%) and Kia (+73%) also outpace the market in the remainder of the Top 10. Finally, notice Tesla (+3600%) up 15 spots to #16 with its first triple-digit monthly sales result at 111.

Model-wise, the Opel Corsa (+1008.7%) triumphs and sells almost double the amount of any other vehicle at 7.4% share. It climbs from #5 to #2 in the year-to-date order as a result. The Hyundai Tucson (+966.7%) is also in outstanding shape, up 11 spots on May to #2 overall. The Renault Clio (-43.1%) implodes in third place while the Opel Crossland is up 8 ranks on last month to #4, its highest ranking so far this year. Still leader year-to-date, the Skoda Octavia (+34.2%) drops to 5th place for the month ahead of the Dacia Duster (+42.3%) and Sandero (+14.3%) both trailing the market. Below, the Seat Ibiza (+440.9%), Suzuki Swift (+321.6%), Peugeot 208 (+303.2%), Peugeot 2008 (+283.3%), VW T-Cross (+211.3%) and T-Roc (+206.3%) all score outlandish year-on-year gains. The Tesla Model 3 breaks into the Top 20 for the first time at #19.
