Polandís car market off to a flying start

Poland new car sales 2017 Skoda top of the tree

The annual market for new cars in Poland stands out as the biggest in Eastern Europe. Moreover, three months through the current year, Poland has also emerged as one of Europeís fastest growing car markets. A sign of the times, Polandís new car sales during this yearís first quarter rose by a strong 20.3 per cent to 125,932 units, following an equally lively 26 per cent jump this March

The collapse of the Berlin wall in November 1989 also marked the end of the iron curtain and in the process Polandís return to democracy. 

But the fruits of democracy such as a notable pick up in annual new car sales were not spotted for yet another half-dozen years. 

After still hovering around the 250,000 annual new car sales in the early 1990s, it was not until the late 1990s that significant pent-up demand for new cars made its presence felt in Poland. 

By 1996 annual new car sales had already reached 375,000 units, rising further to 478,000 sold cars in 1997 and finally peaking at an all-time high of 640,200 units in 1999. 

But it could not hold that high level.

In the mid to late 2000s, Poland was selling around 300,000 passenger cars year. 

Today, it sells closer to 400,000 units annually. 

Thatís underlined by the 416,000 new cars sold in Poland last year, which marks the highest annual sales total since 1999 when annual sales, propelled by large pent-up demand, last peaked at 640,183 units.
