After artificially soaring 58.5% in August due to pre-WLTP registrations, new car sales in Lithuania post a surprisingly measured drop in September at -8.3% to 2.279 units, the lowest of the three Baltic states, leading to a year-to-date volume up 27% to 24.328. This is according to data shared with us by our partner JATO Dynamics. The Fiat 500 (-14%) holds onto the models pole position at 19.6% share vs. 14.8% so far this year, but the surprise of the month is the 223% year-on-year surge of the Toyota C-HR leaping up to a record 2nd place, distancing the Fiat Tipo (+19%) and Toyota Auris (+209%) also posting a stunning gain, as does the Toyota RAV4 (+33%) bu the Nissan Qashqai (-84%), VW Golf (-77%), Passat (-71%) and Fiat 500X (-68%) all implode.
