Bulgaria November 2021: Citroen C3 tops market up 17%

The Citroen C3 is the best-selling vehicle in Bulgaria in November.

New light vehicle sales in Bulgaria jump up 17% year-on-year in November to 2,398 registrations, leading to a year-to-date tally up 16.2% to 28,900. Note some brands with only YTD volumes have been added such as Iveco, MAN, Cupra, UAZ and Alpine. Toyota (+60%) leaps up to keep the brands top spot, only two units above Renault (+32.4%) staying at #2. Citroen (+1508.3%) is up 16-fold to #3 vs. #8 last month, while the YTD leader Dacia (-59.6%) remains in dire straits yet gains two spots on October to end the month at #4. Kia (+245.7%), Hyundai (+65.7%) and Ford (+65%) also post spectacular upticks in the remainder of the Top 10 whereas Skoda (-30.8%), Peugeot (-23.5%) and Volkswagen (-22.1%) suffer. Suzuki (+347.4%), Opel (+94.6%) and Mercedes (+79.6%) also shine further down. 

Model-wise, with the discontinuation of the traditional leader the Dacia Dokker (-79.6%) at #10, the cards are redistributed and this month the Citroen C3 (+1933.3%) brilliantly takes the lead with 5% share, easily outpacing last month’s leader the Toyota Corolla (+28.8%) while the Toyota C-HR (+182.1%) is up three spots to #3 and the Ford Transit (+227.3%) down one to #4. The Renault Master (+16.1%) is also down one rank to #5 ahead of the Nissan Qashqai (+8.1%) and Dacia Duster (-11.9%). The Kia Sportage (+256.3%) posts the 2nd largest gain in the Top 10. A potential replacement for the Dacia Dokker, the Renault Express is up three spots on last month to land at a relatively weak 11th position. It is however the best-selling recent launch in the country above the Citroen C4 (#26) and Renault Arkana (#30).
