Estonia: 1970-2013 Historical info now available!

February 25th, 2014 No comments

The Lada 2106 may have topped the Estonian sales charts in the eighties. 

Historical info spanning the past five decades is now available for Estonia on BSCB! For the 1970-1991 period, the data is for USSR which Estonia belonged to then, and Lada models reigned supreme. From 2005 onwards we have specific data for Estonia, and there is no trace of Russian models anymore! With a small market come very volatile sales charts, with only two models able to remain in pole position for two consecutive years: the Toyota Corolla in 2005 and 2006 and the Renault Megane in 2009 and 2010. The Honda CR-V topped the ranking twice over the period: in 2007 and 2013. All other winners did so only once: the Mazda6 in 2008, Skoda Octavia in 2011 and Toyota Avensis in 2012.
