The Slovenian new car market gains 25.5% year-on-year in August to 5.636 registrations, lifting the year-to-date volume up 9.7% to 53.559 units. Renault soars 52% to 18.4% share vs. 14.4% YTD, snapping the lead of the brands ranking off Volkswagen (+27%) at 14.1% vs. 16.9% so far in 2018. Fiat (+249%), Seat (+35%) and Toyota (+30%) also beat the market in the Top 10, Peugeot (+24%) matches it, Citroen (+6%) and Hyundai (+2%) are slow and Opel (-8%) goes in reverse. Further down the ladder, Jeep (+3900%!), Alfa Romeo (+533%), Volvo (+250%), Porsche (+217%), Mini (+100%), Nissan (+92%), Audi (+49%), Kia (+41%) and Seat (+35%) for the most part give off a distinct pre-WLTP stock clearance flavour to the market.

New car sales in Slovenia gain 17.6% year-on-year in July to 6.246 units, meaning the year-to-date tally is now up 8.1% to 47.923 registrations. Slovenia is yet another country to be heavily impacted by Volkswagen’s stock-clearing program ahead of the WLTP standards change: the German carmaker is up 59% to hit 20.4% share vs. 17.2% year-to-date, distancing Renault (+21%), Skoda (+6%) and Opel (-10%). Fiat (+138%), Seat (+42%) and Peugeot (+26%) also impress in the Top 10 whereas Dacia (-43%) and Ford (-39%) sink. Further down, notice Jeep (+750%), Land Rover (+250%), Mitsubishi (+160%), Volvo (+150%), Nissan (+93%, also benefitting from a Europe-wide stock-clearing program) and Seat (+42%) all posting spectacular gains. Logically based on the brand’s July performance, the VW Golf (+23%) and Polo (+34%) top the models ranking ahead of the YTD leader the Renault Clio (-11%). The Nissan Qashqai (+623%), Fiat 500 (+540%), Fiat Panda (+256%), Renault Kadjar (+240%), VW Tiguan (+140%), Renault Captur (+139%) and Hyundai Tucson (+122%) are the most impressive gainers in the remainder of the Top 20 while the VW T-Roc leaps up 4 spots on June to return into the Slovenian Top 10 for the third time in the past four months at a record #7.

New car sales in Slovenia dip down 2.3% year-on-year in June to 7.378 registrations, however the year-to-date tally remains in positive at +6.8% to 41.677 units. Volkswagen (+18%) and Renault (+13%) post robust gains to more than ever dominate the Slovenian sales charts, adding up to 34.1% share vs. 31% YTD. Below Skoda (-7%) in difficulty, Fiat (+99%) continues to surge ahead and posts by far the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 15. Dacia (-53%) and Opel (-28%) are not so lucky. Below, Abarth (+600%), Lexus (+250%), Mitsubishi (+190%), Jaguar (+143%) and Alfa Romeo (+136%) shine. Model-wise, the Renault Clio (+6%) reclaims the throne it sits on YTD, dislodging the VW Polo (+87%) while the VW Golf (-20%) rounds up the podium. The Fiat 500 is up 20-fold (!) on June 2017 to #4 vs. #7 YTD and #70 in FY2017: we suspect this sudden surge has a lot to do with rental sales. The Nissan Qashqai (+176%), Renault Captur (+148%) and VW Tiguan (+96%) also impress in the Top 10 and the VW T-Roc (#11) tops recent launches well ahead of the Hyundai Kona (#41) and Kia Stonic (#43).
