The car market is growing, we just need to stop importing junk cars
A total of 30,731 new cars were sold in Serbia in 2018, which is an increase of about seven to eight percent compared to the previous year, the Serbian Association of Vehicle Importers has announced.
Skoda vehicles were sold the most, followed by Fiat, Volkswagen, Renault, Dacia, Hyundai, and there was signification interest in Japanese cards as well.
President of the Association Milos Petrovic has stated with “Tanjug” that, according to data of the Serbian Ministry of Interior, a total of 30,731 vehicles were registered last year, of which 25,000 were passenger and 5,500 were light commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tons.
“According to this data one can see that we “returned” to 2011 when 30,000 vehicles were sold, but we are far from 2008 when 60,000 were sold,” Petrovic has said.
According to him, the car market in Serbia is growing due to better financing conditions, easier procurement and decrease in price of vehicles. “It’s easier to get a loan, procedure has been simplified, and cars have never been this cheap.”
