Czech Republic Autos sales down 2.6% in June. So far this year Skoda pulled up the market with 32.8% of market share, while Dacia is fast growing, advancing in fourth place. Suzuki and Mini are shining.

Czech Republic GDP data confirmed that the economy lost some steam at the start of the year, growing 4.4% in Q1 on a year-on-year basis, down from the 5.5% expansion recorded in Q4. Despite the slowdown, the pace of growth remained robust. Solid household spending—underpinned by an extremely tight labor market and substantial wage gains in both the public and private sectors—and buoyant fixed investment growth were the key drivers behind the expansion. Meanwhile, weaker Eurozone demand bruised export activity, weighing on the overall first-quarter performance.

The automotive industry become a crucial factor in the country’s economic development and the great performance reported for one of the major national company, Skoda, has driven up the market in the last years.
