Czech New Car Sales Drop 25% In October

Sales of new passenger cars fell by a quarter year-on-year to 12,670 vehicles in October. Sales in ten months reached 174,494 cars, up 5.7 percent from the same period last year, lagging 17 percent behind the year before 2019. This follows from the data of the Association of Car Importers.

The decline in sales in the autumn months is mainly due to outages in car deliveries due to a lack of chips and other components, along with stagnant logistics. The best-selling is despite the almost 5% decline in Škoda, followed by Hyundai and Volkswagen, which, on the other hand, recorded more than 20% increases.
