New light vehicle sales are again very dynamic in Bulgaria this year, up 8% to 33,573 units. Keep in mind Bulgaria is the kingdom of re-exports (cars bought as new and then sent to other European market to be sold as 0km used), so not all vehicles registered this year have actually hit Bulgarian roads. The brands ranking is reshuffled as Toyota (+21.9%) takes control with 11.6% share vs. #3 last year. Renault (+11.9%) remains in 2nd place with 10.9% of the market while Dacia (-20.7%) not supported by the Dokker anymore, falls from #1 to #3. Volkswagen (+21.1%) is also up two spots to #4, Skoda (+5.3%) trails behind the market growth slightly and drops one rank to #5 ahead of Kia (+19.4%) and Hyundai (+106.7%) both very dynamic. Below Peugeot (-12.1%) sinking three spots to #8, Citroen (+11.4%) and Ford (+18.6%) round out the Top 10.
Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla (+18%) leaps up three ranks to land in the pole position with 3.7% share. Leader last year but now discontinued, the Dacia Dokker (-97%) falls to #134. The Dacia Duster (-4.5%) advances to #2 despite losing ground year-on-year while the Dacia Sandero (+43.3%) is up six spots to #3. The Renault Clio (-12.3%) and Citroen C3 (+2.5%) can’t keep up with the market but still manage to climb up the ladder at #4 and #5 respectively. The Toyota C-HR (+23.9%) and Renault Megane (+56.2%) are the only additional gainers in the remainder of the Top 10 and big gainers at that. In contrast the Renault Master (-26.3%), Skoda Octavia (-22.1%) and Kia Sportage (-3.2%) are down. The Dacia Jogger (#19) is the best-selling 2022 launch above the Toyota Yaris Cross (#41) and VW Taigo (#52).
