Romania Car Sales Jan-Jun 2017


This is Dacia country. Why, back in 1997, it had 87% of the market! Since then, it has steadily taken less of a share of sales. It did bounce back to 33% in 2015 from a low of 25% in 2012. However, this year it is back to the 2012 level. Škoda and VW have been fighting over second spot and for now the spoils belong to the latter.

Sales were up 47% in June and so far this year +27%. While that is good, it is nowhere near the boom time of last decade. I assume that was not a sustainable anyway so maybe now more realistic.

The chart below shows a % symbol that represents market share. The +/- column is increase or decrease based on the first six month's market share of 2017 against the full 2016 year. While the strong increase has seen nearly all makes increase, the chart below judges market share so some have gained sales but received a minus result.
