Car market slows down in Croatia this year – hybrid and electric cars becoming more popular

Written by  Aug 08, 2022

In Croatia, in the first seven months of this year, 28,925 new passenger vehicles were registered, which is almost nine percent less than in the same period last year, while in July alone, 5,390 were registered, or five percent less than in the same month last year.

From January to the end of July, the most newly registered vehicle was Volkswagen, 3,291 of them, so that VW has an 11.4 percent share in the total sales of new passenger vehicles.

In second place is Škoda, a member of the same group, with 2,684 vehicles sold and a market share of 9.3 percent, while the third-ranked Kia has a share of 9.1 percent, with 2,635 vehicles sold.

Dacia is in fourth place with 2,319 new vehicles sold and a share of eight percent, while Opel is fifth with 2,181 new cars sold and a share of 7.5 percent in total sales.

The best-selling model in July this year is once again the Škoda Octavia, of which 381 were sold. The Octavia, by the way, has been one of the most sought-after models on the Croatian market for years and is mostly at the top of sales.

In July, Croatian citizens also bought one Lamborghini, two Bentleys, three Teslas and 21 Porsches.

Interestingly, just over 20 percent of all new vehicles sold were hybrid, and 2.2 percent were fully electric.
