New car sales in Romania still feel the brunt of post-WLTP hangover at -32.9% to 6.736 units in October, yet the year-to-date tally remains in frank positive territory at +27.6% to 113.331 sales. Homegrown brand leader Dacia matches the market at -34% to 28.2% share vs. 27.5% so far this year, with Skoda (-16%) and Ford (-17%) completing the podium and Skoda overtaking Renault (-63%) to earn the 2nd spot YTD. Only Volvo (+56%), Hyundai (+43%), Peugeot (+37%) and Mazda (+2%) post a gain in the Top 20, with Fiat (-83%), Audi (-79%), Seat (-68%), Land Rover (-59%), Suzuki (-59%), Citroen (-57%), Nissan (-52%), Kia (-51%), Mercedes (-49%), Volkswagen (-40%), Opel (-38%) and BMW (-36%) all freefalling. The Dacia Logan (-37%) celebrates 170 consecutive months at #1 ahead of the Duster (-45%) while the Sandero (+23%) posts a surprising surge in third place above the Skoda Octavia (-18%), Rapid (-22%) and Hyundai Tucson (+104%). The Ford Ecosport (+985%) is the only other Top 10 nameplate in positive, surfing on the launch of its facelifted variant. Other great performers include the Peugeot 3008 (+367%), Hyundai i30 (+134%), VW Touareg (+78%), Mazda CX-3 (+77%), Toyota C-HR (+43%) and the VW T-Roc up 43 spots on September to #17.

What goes around comes around: Romania was the EU market that was the most spectacularly boosted by pre-WLTP stock clearances in August at +138%, and is then logically obliterated in September at -73.4% year-on-year to just 2.771 units, compared to 28.546 last month. The year-to-date tally is in no danger however at +35.3% to 106.595. Homegrown leader Dacia (-80%) falls even faster than the market to 23.9% she vs. 27.5% so far this year, while Ford (-47%) leaps up four spots on last month to #2 with 13.3% share vs. 7% in 2018, ahead of Skoda (-65%) at 12.3% vs. 8.2% while Hyundai (-20%) posts the smallest decline in the Top 13 to jump 7 ranks to #4 and 10.3% share vs. just 4% year-to-date. Suzuki (-95%), Audi (-93%), Opel (-93%), Fiat (-90%), Renault (-89%), Nissan (-84%), Land Rover (-82%) and Volkswagen (-81%) are hit the hardest but two carmakers do manage a positive result this month: Smart (+125%) and Volvo (+18%).

Model-wise, the Dacia Logan (-84%) implodes to 11% but extends its streak of 169 consecutive months at #1, ahead of the Dacia Duster (-70%), Skoda Octavia (-55%) and Dacia Sandero (-79%), almost replicating the YTD Top 4, however the Renault Clio (-92%) falls flat to #28 vs. #5 YTD. The Hyundai Tucson soars 36% year-on-year and 45 spots on August to #5 but the best performer in the Top 10 is the locally produced Ford Ecosport up 467% YoY and 12 ranks on last month to #6. Both the Tucson and Ecosport break new ranking records in Romania. Other rare gainers in the Top 50 include the Toyota C-HR (+41%) at #12, Peugeot 3008 (+11%) at #29 and Volvo XC90 (+114%) at #44. The Hyundai Kona (#39) tops all recent launches (<12 months) above the Volvo XC40 (#55), Skoda Karoq (#56) and VW T-Roc (#60).

Note All-brands and All-models data for May, June and July 2018 is also included in this article.

Romania is back on BSCB after a three month-hiatus but with complete data. The commentary will focus on August. The Romanian new car market was already in outstanding shape so far in 2018 with 7 months volumes up 33.6% to 75.278, but August sales take it to the next level with registrations shooting up a whopping 137.9% to 28.546 units, due of course to significant stock clear-out activity ahead of the WLTP emissions standard September 1 deadline. As a result, the year-to-date tally is now up 51.9% to 103.824 sales. Homegrown brand leader Dacia (+89%) doesn’t quite match the market but still posts a very solid 26% share vs. 27.6% YTD, but it’s Renault (+415%) that plays the pre-WLTP game to the extreme in Romania, snapping the #2 YTD spot off Skoda (+81%) as a result. Nissan (+285%), Opel (+193%), Toyota (+185%) and Mercedes (+140%) also post exaggerated surges in the Top 10 while outside, Jeep (+2730%), Ssangyong (+1500%), Lada (+1400%), Alfa Romeo (+960%), Jaguar (+558%), Honda (+402%), Mitsubishi (+379%), Citroen (+234%) and Audi (+207%) are among the most “dynamic”, all artificial gains of course.

The Renault Megane is up 515% in August due to pre-WLTP stock clearing.

Over in the models ranking, the Dacia Logan (+57%) is unperturbed by the WLTP mess and celebrates 14 consecutive years of monthly victories at home in Romania: that’s 168 months in a row in pole position since the launch of the nameplate in September 2004 when it held a gargantuan 33%. The Logan (+49%) is also comfortably ahead YTD at 15.2% share. In 2nd place the Dacia Duster (+182%) leaps up to 6.5% share, almost identical to its YTD level, and just below we can witness Renault’s pre-WLTP push with the Clio (+338%) and Megane (+515%) distancing the Dacia Sandero (+85%) which however remains #3 YTD. The Renault Captur (+511%) and Nissan Qashqai (+352%) are the other culprits in the Top 10 while below, the Opel Crossland X (+7650%), Ford Ecosport (+2415%), Renault Trafic (+891%), Honda CR-V (+789%), Toyota C-HR (+530%), Opel Insignia (+508%) and Nissan X-Trail (+406%) also score outlandish upticks. The Citroen C3 Aircross (#43) wins the recent launch race, edging past the VW T-Roc (#46) and Opel Grandland X (#48) with the Skoda Karoq (#65) and Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross (#76) in tow.

Notice also Nissan (+111%), Honda (+78%) and Mazda (+51%). Model-wise, the Dacia Logan (+6%) remains unattainable with the Dacia Duster (+19%) in 2nd place ahead of the Skoda Octavia (-7%) and Dacia Sandero (+39%). The Suzuki Vitara (+67%) and VW Golf (+36%) also shine in the Top 10 while the Opel Crossland X (#13) is up 22 spots on March to top all recent launches (<12 months) ahead of the VW T-Roc (#21), Suzuki Ignis (#61) and Hyundai Kona (#62).

New car sales in Romania are up 5.7% year-on-year in February to 8.777 units, leading to a year-to-date tally up 33.6% to 20.521 sales.

The Romanian new car market starts the year with a gigantic 66% surge to 11.744 registrations for January. Home grown brand leader Dacia follows the market with a 67% uplift to 30.8% share, but the rest of the Top 5 trails behind the overall growth: Volkswagen is up 31%, Skoda up 40%, Ford up 55% and Renault up 16%. There are a lot of spectacular increases below however: Smart (+1900%), Mini (+1282%), Kia (+216%), Hyundai (+183%), Fiat (+153%), Volvo (+152%), Opel (+127%), Suzuki (+126%), Jeep (+112%), Peugeot (+111%) and Mazda (+106%) all more than double their sales year-on-year.

Fourth consecutive year of double-digit gains for the Romanian new car market: after +22% in 2014, +16% in 2015 and +17% to 2016, sales go up 10.7% in 2017 to 105.083 units. This is the first six-digit annual score since the 147.962 sales of 2009. However we remain very far off the market’s all-time high of 343,080 registrations hit in 2008. Local hero Dacia posts a solid 9% year-on-year gain to end the year just below 30.000 units but that’s not quite matching the market, resulting in a lowered 28.5% share. Volkswagen (+12%) overtakes Skoda (+1%) to take 2nd spot overall while Ford (+18%) passes Renault (+12%) to #4. Opel (+16%), Mercedes (+11%), Hyundai (+16%) and Toyota (+21%) hold onto their position while Kia (+43%) breaks into the Top 10 followed by Suzuki (+46%). Alfa Romeo (+345%), Maserati (+76%), Ferrari (+75%), Lada (+67%), Seat (+42%), Bentley (+31%), Ssangyong (+30%), Citroen (+29%), and Nissan (+28%) also impress.

The first generation Dacia Duster ends its last year up 29%.

No surprise in the models ranking: the Dacia Logan celebrates 13 consecutive years at #1 and 160 consecutive months since its launch in September 2004, although with sales edging up just 2%, its annual market share is the lowest ever for the nameplate at 16.4%. The Dacia Duster shoots up 29% to 6.5% share as the new generation starts hitting dealerships at the very end of 2017 and the Dacia Sandero gains 17% to make the podium 100% Dacia for the first time in Romanian history. The Skoda Octavia celebrates ten consecutive years as Romania’s best-selling foreign model, up 2% but down one rank to #4. The Ford Focus (+17%) and Opel Astra (+14%) follow, with the Renault Megane up 3-fold (+178%) to #9 and the VW Golf up 10% and rounding up the Top 10. The Ford Kuga (+148%), Fiat Tipo (+133%), Kia Cee’d (+80%), Mercedes GLC (+54%), VW Polo (+38%), Opel Mokka (+37%), Kia Sportage (+36%) and VW Tiguan (+31%) also make themselves noticed in the Top 35.

New car sales in Romania lose ground year-on-year for the second time in the past four months at -3.5% to 9.311 registrations, yet the year-to-date volume remains comfortably in positive territory at 98.116 units, up 14.6% on the same period a year ago. Homegrown market leader Dacia goes against the grain with a 1% improvement to 29.8% share, well above the 28% it commands year-to-date. Skoda remains in 2nd place despite a 10% drop, followed by Renault surging 27% to #3, Opel up 7% and Volkswagen imploding down 38% to #5. Ford (-11%) and Mercedes (-8%) also struggle whereas Toyota (+35%) and Suzuki (+50%) post the largest year-on-year gains in the Top 10. Below, Mazda (+21%), Nissan (+35%) and Fiat (+43%) impress while Hyundai (-24%), Porsche (-32%), Peugeot (-33%), Volvo (-36%), Land Rover (-41%), Honda (-47%) and Mitsubishi (-48%) are all in great difficulty.

Over in the models ranking, the Dacia Logan unsurprisingly holds onto the top spot in spite of a 9% year-on-year drop to 17.4% share. The Dacia Duster is enjoying a 17% revival just as the outgoing generation is getting discounted, selling more than double the next best-seller the Skoda Octavia (-6%) with the Dacia Samdero (-7%) and Opel Astra (-10%) rounding out the Top 5. The Renault Megane (+165%) is the big winner in the Tp 10, while below the Nissan Qashqai (+89%), Ford Kuga (+219%), Dacia Dokker (+309%), Kia Cee’d (+75%) and Fiat Tipo (+121%) shine. The Opel Crossland X (#40) dominates recent launches above the Toyota C-HR (#42), Skoda Kodiaq (#44) and Suzuki Ignis (#54).

The Romanian new car market posts a second consecutive month of double-digit year-on-year gains in October at a splendid +26.2% to 10.036 registrations, lifting the year-to-date volume up 16.9% to 88.805 units. Homegrown brand leader Dacia trails the market at +13% to 28.6% share, a tad above its YTD level of 27.8%, as does Skoda also up 13% to 9.5%. The remainder of the Top 5 beats the market though: Volkswagen is up 33%, Renault up 35% and Ford, most impressively, is up 84%. Notice also Kia up 96%, Suzuki up 74%, Fiat up 120%, Jeep up 129% and Alfa Romeo up 1600%. Model-wise, the Dacia Logan logically stays ahead but only gains 1% to 16.2% share, while the Dacia Duster surges 55% to 7.4% share vs. 6.2%, potentially a combination of discounts on the outgoing first generation in the wake of the arrival of the second gen in early 2018. The Skoda Octavia (+4%) is back above the Dacia Sandero (+14%) like YTD, with the Opel Astra (+12%) rounding up the Top 5 above the Ford Focus (+163%). Let’s also salute the Renault Clio (+57%) and Megane (+143%) inside the Top 10 while beyond, the Ford Fiesta (+106%), Kuga (+112%), Kia Cee’d (+408%) and VW Up (+461%) make themselves noticed. The Toyota C-HR (#39), Skoda Kodiaq (#51) and Suzuki Ignis (#78) top recent launches.
