The Renault Clio is the best-selling vehicle in Slovenia in September.
The Slovenian new car market is down -7% year-on-year in September to 4.127 registrations, meaning the year-to-date tally is now in negative at -0.3% to 43.098 units. Faithful to its end-of-quarter backloading practice, Renault (+10.2%) defies the depleted environment to take the lead of the brands charts with 15.7% share vs. just 10.4% so far this year. Volkswagen (-3.4%) is toppled at a weak 12.4% share vs. 16.8% YTD while Skoda (-34.5%) is back up one spot on last month to #3 despite a ghastly loss. Below Hyundai (-14%), Kia (+60.3%) scores the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 10, with Ford (+51.9%), Fiat (+43.8%) and Toyota (+22.4%) also very dynamic in the remainder of the Top 10. In contrast, Peugeot (-38.9%) and Citroen (-37.7%) both freefall. Tesla (+1200%), Porsche (+350%), Volvo (+96.3%), Honda (+78.6%), Suzuki (+39%) and Opel (+20%) also impress further down.
Over in the models ranking, the Renault Clio (+20.1%) rallies back up seven spots to reclaim the pole position it holds year-to-date for the first time since last March. In fact Renault manages a 1-2 with last month’s leader the Captur (+41.9%) in 2nd place overall. Both the Fiat Panda (+291.4%) and VW T-Cross (+167.4%) post stellar gains below just as the Skoda Kamiq (-1.1%) roars up 7 spots on last month to #5. The Kia Stonic (+187.5%) is up 8 to #6, while the Kia Sportage (+190%) and Hyundai i20 (+97.7%) also shine in the remainder of the Top 10. New launches have yet to make their mark in Slovenia, with the best-ranked being the Toyota Yaris Cross at #29, followed by the VW ID.4 at #39, Opel Mokka at #40, Citroen C4 at #52 and Hyundai Bayon at #55.
