Car registrations growing on annual base

IN THE FIRST seven months of this year, 44,768 new passenger cars and small utility vehicles, up to 3.5 tons, were registered in Slovakia. This total represents an annual growth of 10.5 percent, according to police statistics.

In July, however, only 5,882 vehicles were registered in this category, which represents a decrease of 9.2 percent year-on-year.

During this first seven-month period of the year the market share of Škoda was nearly 26 percent. Volkswagen was second with a 9.1 percent market share followed by Peugeot with 7.2 percent, SME wrote.
