Slovenia July 2021: VW T-Cross repeats at #1 in market crumbling -31.1%
The VW T-Cross is the best-selling vehicle in Slovenia again.
New car sales in Slovenia take a hit in July at -31.1% year-on-year to 4.426 registrations, leading two a year-to-date tally up just 2.9% to 35.435 units. Volkswagen (-11.6%) almost slices the market drop in three to improve its share to 18.6%, exactly double any other manufacturer this month. Sister brand Skoda (-22.5%) returns to the 2nd place it holds year-to-date while Hyundai (-14.3%) is up two spots on June to round out the podium at #3. Renault (-69.4%) is hit full frontal and drops to #4 ahead of Peugeot (-42.9%) and Kia (-38%) also in great difficulty. Toyota (-12.8%) and Seat (-17.7%) also resist in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Dacia (-55.4%) sinks and Citroen (-31.9%) matches the market. Further down, Jeep (+771.4%) goes completely against the grain with a fantastic year-on-year gain lifting it 12 spots on last month to #13 brand, with Porsche (+22.2%) the only additional gainer among brands selling more than 10 units for the month. Newcomer Cupra remains at #24.
Model-wise, the VW T-Cross (+129.9%) more than doubles its sales to repeat at #1, lodging a third win in the past four months and 4th pole position ever after September 2019, April 2021 and June 2021. Volkswagen even manages a 1-2 with the Polo (+30.8%) surging six spots on last month to #2 overall. The Skoda Octavia (-19.5%) rallies back up 15 ranks to #3, distancing the Dacia Sandero (-13.5%) up three spots to #4. Even tough it is back up 8 ranks on last month to #5, the Renault Captur (-74.7%) completely crumbles year-on-year, as does the YTD leader, the Renault Clio (-74.9%) down to a paltry #15 for the month. The Jeep Compass (+1750%), Hyundai i10 (+176.9%) and Skoda Kamiq (+44.9%) also impress in the remainder of the Top 10.
