For the first time on BSCB and thanks to Siniša Bulatović and Montenegrin publication Autoshop Magazin, I can share with you official sales data for Montenegro. 2,167 new vehicles found a buyer in the country in 2014, with Volkswagen the most popular manufacturer at 13.8% followed by Dacia (10.8%), Renault (10.7%), Toyota and Skoda. Mercedes manages to hop to an outstanding 6th spot, with Audi at #10, BMW at #15 and Land Rover at #17.
In the models ranking, the Dacia Sandero dominates head and shoulders with almost double the sales of any other nameplate in the country and a 7.2% market share. Surprisingly, this makes Montenegro the only market in the world where the Sandero is officially #1 and the 6th where a Dacia is the best-seller along with Romania, Algeria, Morocco, Moldova (Logan) and Bulgaria (Dokker). The VW Golf follows at 3.9% with the Skoda Octavia rounding up the podium at 3.7% just above the VW Polo at 3.6%. Notice also the Renault Captur at #5, Toyota RAV4 at #6 and Mazda3 at #19.
