PAP reports that Polish new car sales rose over 29 pct y/y to 143,624 in January-April, citing as source the automotive market monitoring company Samar.

Passenger car sales rose a record 45 percent y/y to 45,115 in April.

Samar said that future car sales did not look so optimistic with the present growth caused by fears about new unfavourable regulations and price rises.

Fiat was the best selling passenger car, followed by Skoda and Toyota.
