Demand for passenger cars down

Police registered slightly more than 7,600 passenger cars and small utility vehicles up to 3.5 tons in June. Compared with the same period last year, this is a drop of 2.54 percent, the Automotive Industry Association (ZAP) told the SITA newswire.

In the first six months of 2007, 39,684 new passenger cars and small utility vehicles were registered in Slovakia, up 2.05 percent year-on-year. The almost 30 percent registration growth in February helped maintain the overall increase in sales in the first six months of the year. "The other five months of the year, June included, continued the downward trend in sales of passenger cars and small utility vehicles," Mária Nováková of ZAP told SITA.

In six months of 2007, Škoda still registered the biggest share on the Slovak automotive market, with 22.81 percent.
