Thanks to Enrique from es.autoblog.com I can share with you the best-sellers in Moscow, Russia for November 2011 when 35,820 new cars were registered. The Muscovite car landscape is totally different than the rest of Russia and this is why it is fascinating. For starters, brand-wise, Lada is not even #1! It ranks third with 2,422 sales below Nissan (2,602) and Kia (2,442). Hyundai is #4 with 2,005 units and Toyota #5 at 2,004.
The Lada 2104-5-7 however is still the best-selling model in Moscow even though it plunged to a lowest-ever #10 in the national ranking. With the Lada Priora at #10, it is the only Russian model in the Muscovite Top 10! The Ford Focus comes at a very strong 2nd with 568 sales, followed by the Renault Logan at 547, the VW Polo at 544, Opel Astra at 542 and Kia Cee’d at 516. Respectively #1 and #2 nationally, the Lada Samara and Kalina only rank #12 and #11 in Moscow.
Further along the ranking, you can see a few Chinese models: the Great Wall Hover is #45, the Vortex Tingo (aka Chery Tiggo) is #91 and the Lifan Solano a favourite with Moscow Police is #154.
But the most interesting feature of the Muscovite models ranking is the omnipresence of luxurious and expensive models. See for yourself: Lexus RX at #60, Infiniti FX at #70, BMW X6 at #79, Mercedes GL Class #80, Range Rover Sport #87, Mercedes S Class #106, Audi A7 #108, BMW 7 Series #112, Audi A8 #124, Porsche Cayenne #128, Audi Q7 #133 and Porsche Panamera #166…
