According to the results of two months, sales of the model increased by a quarter. In addition, the share of Rio with two pedals has become noticeably larger - it has added 9.4 points, almost 88% of cars are sold in this version.
The best dynamics in the top 10 was noted by SkodRapid, the demand for it increased more than one and a half times, although the reason is the falling sales of the previous generation Rapids in early 2020, the manufacturer was preparing to launch an updated version on the market.
