The Tesla Model 3 breaks into the Croatian Top 10 in September.
3,397 new cars found a buyer in Croatia in September, that’s a 22.5% year-on-year improvement and the second straight month of double-digit gains. The Top 4 manufacturers all beat the market, starting with Volkswagen (+104.6%) and Skoda (+104.8%) both doubling their sales. Renault (+26.4%) and last month’s leader Opel (+30.2%) follow. Dacia (+8.1%) is weak in 5th place, distancing Toyota (+62.1%) and Suzuki (+23.9%) both outrunning the market as well. Leader a year ago, Kia (-35.7%) falls to 9th place this month while Peugeot (+34.3%) rounds out the Top 10 in dynamic fashion. Tesla (+240.6%) and Mercedes (+101.7%) shine below.
Over in the models ranking, the Skoda Octavia (+329.6%) more than quadruples its volume year-on-year and sails into the distance at 6.8% share. It also cements its YTD lead vs. #2 over the Full Year 2021. The Opel Crossland (+48.6%) falls from the pole position it held last month but still scores a fantastic year-on-year uptick. Not as strong as the Toyota Yaris (+512.5%) and Renault Clio (+142.5%) though, while the Dacia Duster (+5.5%) rounds out the Top 5. The Suzuki S-Cross (+616.7%) climbs to #8 and the performer of the month is the Tesla Model 3 breaking into the Croatian Top 10 for the first time at #10.
