Slovenia Cars Market in the first half of 2016 Renault-Clio-2017

Slovenia Cars Market grew sharply in the first half of 2016 fueled by economic expansion. Volkswagen was again the brand leader and Opel earned one place. The Renault Clio was the best-selling model.

Market Outlook

The economy expanded 2.5% in Q1 over the same quarter of the last year, which was below the 3.3% increase recorded in Q4 2015. Economic activity was largely underpinned by resilient export growth, which mainly resulted from improving external demand from EU countries.

Conversely, sluggish private consumption and falling investment dragged on growth. Despite subdued economic activity, macroeconomic fundamentals remain solid against a backdrop of multi-year low unemployment and a steady recovery in the housing market.

According to data released by the Sekcija Za Osebna Motorna Vozila, the Association of Car Manufacturers in Slovenia, the total new car passengers sales in the first half of the year had been 34.980, up 9.8%.
