Lithuania New Cars Market in 2016 kept a robust growing speed, hitting the third annual increase in double-digit. Fiat was again in pole position, pushed up by the Fiat 500 renovated success.

Market Outlook

Lithuania shifted into higher gear in the final quarter of 2016, accelerating from Q3’s 1.7% to 3.0%. Despite the remarkable pick-up, the country continues to suffer from an exodus of skilled workers looking for better opportunities abroad. The shortage of workers is exacerbating the economic woes of Lithuania’s already beleaguered sectors, particularly agriculture and construction. FocusEconomics panelists expect the economy to expand 2.7% in 2017.

As regard the auto sector, Lithuania is one of the small Eastern European markets where the development of mass motorization is relatively recent. In 2016, the new cars market boomed in double-digit for the third consecutive year, hitting the best performance since 2009.

Instead, according to data released by the Lithuanian Minister of Transportation, new cars sales had been 20.320 (+18.9%) while light commercial vehicles sales were 2.793.

Competitive Arena

Fiat was riding high confirming the leadership with 3.370 units (+24.3%) and 17.8% of market share. Volkswagen ranked second with 2.643 sales (+4.0%) ahead of Toyota with 2.415 (+27.5%).

The best performer was Renault surging 50.6% followed by Kia, BMW and Opel, while Skoda decline moderately.

The Fiat 500 was the best-selling model with 2.459 units (+13.4%) ahead of the Nissan Qashqai with 794 (-5.0%) and the Skoda Octavia with 783 (-11.7%).
