New car sales in the Czech Republic post a third straight record year in 2016, even reaching an all-time high volume after 11 months. The final 2016 tally stands at 259.893 units, up 12.5% on the previous record established in 2015. To stress how exceptional this year has been for the Czech new car market, let’s keep in mind the all-time monthly volume record was beaten four successive times, which also happen to have occurred four months in a row: the record was lifted to 22.799 in March23.131 in April24.335 in May and 25.714 in June. For comparison, in 2015 this record was beaten three times: in March (21.155), June (21.315) and July (21.415)… However keep in mind a significant part of Czech sales (from 10 to 12% of the total market depending on the month) never see local roads and are immediately re-exported to other parts of the European Union.
