Croatia New Cars Market in 2016 Hyundai_ioniq_ev_2017

Croatia Vehicles Sales 2016 posted a vigorous increase, sustained by the economic recovery. The sector advanced at the best since 2010, still far from record. Hyundai the best, Kia the worse.

Croatia’s economic recovery finally gathered pace in 2016, following a mild rebound in 2015 after six years of recession. Growth came on the back of both a buoyant tourism sector and robust private consumption, supported by falling unemployment and real wage growth. FocusEconomics panelists expect GDP to grow 2.6% in 2017.

Following the moderate increase of the previous year, the domestic cars market in 2016 accelerated the pace hitting the third consecutive annual growth. It was the best sales level reported since 2010, pushed up by the outstanding performance posted in December (+82.4%). However, the registrations scored in the full year will have to double to reach the all time record of 2008.

Indeed according to data released by Autonet, new cars sales had been 42.898 (+23.2%) while light commercial vehicles sales were 8.142 (+21.6).
