The Czech new car market is down for the 2nd month running in October at -15% to 19.704 units, pulling the year-to-date volume into negative territory at -0.5% to 227.488. Once again homegrown brand leader Skoda (-0.3%) fares much better than the market to shoot up to a mammoth 37.3% share vs. 31.9% so far this year. Hyundai (-22%) is up one spot to #3 despite a painful fall while Dacia soars 86% year-on-year to climb onto the October podium. Volkswagen (-48%) remains in freefall even though it is up one spot to #4. Peugeot (+30%) is the other great performer in the Top 10, Toyota (+5%) is the only additional one in positive and Renault (-50%), Ford (-42%), Mercedes (-24%) and Kia (-21%) implode. Further down, Jaguar (+194%), Lexus (+51%), Volvo (+46%), Jeep (+29%), Citroen (+16%) and Land Rover (+16%) all go against the grain to post stellar gains. Models-wise, the Skoda Octavia (+0.2%), Fabia (+22%) and Rapid (+2%) dominate once again, this time ahead of the Hyundai i30 (-16%), Skoda Karoq (+45%) and Superb (-26%). The Dacia Dokker (+371%), Peugeot 2008 (+59%) and Dacia Duster (+51%) are the other great performers in the Czech Top 10 this month.
