The Ukrainian new car market is down 17% year-on-year in December to 20,580 registrations, bringing the Full Year 2012 total to 217,581 units, down 8% on 2011. We thought its July performance would be an exceptional one-off, but the Geely CK manages to climb to the Ukrainian models ranking pole position once again this month thanks to 907 sales and 4.4%, over one percentage point above the #2, the Skoda Octavia at 656 units and 3.2%. The ZAZ Sens rounds up the podium like last month with 650 sales and 3.1%.
The Hyundai Accent is up one spot on November to #4 at 615 units and 3%, last month’s leader the Renault Logan is down to #6 with 576 sales and 2.8% while the Lada 4×4 is up 8 ranks to #8. Geely has an exceptional month, with the Emgrand EC7 up a huge 52 ranks to a record #12 at 357 units and 1.7% and the MK-2/Cross up an even more impressive 124 spots to #19. Notice also the Ford Kuga up 7 to #14 and the Hyundai i30 up 12 to #15.
