Here we have three nations in the south of Europe, all fairly close in size. Bulgaria and Serbia are about 26,000 each while Croatia adds 10,000 units comparing the last seven years of average sales. So let's compare them. All buy similar numbers of premium cars.
Bulgaria: LR is a popular marque with 0.83% of total sales. Unfortunately for JLR, Jaguar isn't so combined they can't quite make the 1% point. Still, a solid performance.
Serbia: Until 2016 Jaguar wasn't sold here, one of two European nations that I know of which that was the case. Both of those markets have been entered so it will interesting to see how the locals embrace the new brand. LR isn't that popular with 0.33% share of the market but 2017 looks like a huge improvement for JLR.
Croatia: Both brands are here, but only just. With just 0.17% of all sales, JLR has much work to do here but 2017 is already well ahead of the 2016 total with four months still to run. Jaguar in particular is improving.
In summary, Bulgaria is the easy winner here, but the other two are definitely improving in 2017.
