Sales of cars rose by 1.9 percent in 2021

Sales of new passenger cars in Czechia rose by 1.9 percent last year to 206,876 vehicles, the Association of Automobile Importers announced at a press conference on Thursday. This represents a fall of 17.2 percent on 2019. The sales last year were mainly affected by a shortage of cars due to a lack of chips.

The best-selling brand, Škoda Auto, sold 70,946 cars, followed by Hyundai with 20,200 cars and Volkswagen, which sold 16,813 cars. Toyota finished in the fourth place with 10,334 cars sold, followed by Kia with 9,787 vehicles.
