Slovenian Autos Market Renault-Zoe_e-Sport_Concept-2017

Slovenian Autos Market boomed in October (+23%) pushed up by an amazing Renault performance (+70%). The French maker aims to gain the leadership, actually in Volkswagen hands, in a country where it is leader in the vehicles production.

Recent data points to solid economic growth in the third quarter. In August, a strong expansion in exports translated into accelerated industrial production. Retail sales, a proxy for private consumption, also continued to grow at a healthy pace in the month, albeit moderating from July. Moreover, economic sentiment in September shot up to the highest level in over 10 years. An upsurge in tax revenues in the January–September period made it possible to narrow the budget deficit, which is expected to beat the government’s target of minus 0.8% of GDP this year.

Slovenian vehicles market has fast recovered after the 2009 crisis and domestic sales are growing uninterruptedly since five years, with 2016 light vehicles sales at 73.633, including car passenger’s at 63.672. The momentum is still live and current year is projected with car passenger’s above 70.000 units to land over 75.000 in the 2018.
