Thanks to our partnership with autoconsulting.kz, we can share with you today December and Full Year 2016 data for Kazakhstan. It has been an exhausting year in Kazakhstan: the second annual freefall with deliveries down an abysmal 52% to 46.715 units after dropping 40% in 2015, once again hit full frontal by the recession in neighbouring Russia. One carmaker has taken full advantage of the situation: Toyota. The Japanese carmaker is up an incredible 25% to see its market share go from 7.4% in 2015 to a commanding 19.4% this year, leaping from 5th place to pole position. Toyota also manages to place the Camry in the lead of the models ranking with 3.190 sales, up 59% year-on-year and knocking last year’s leader, the Hyundai Accent, down to #8 with sales plummeting 80%.

GAZ Gazelle Kazakhstan 2016. Picture courtesy all-cars.byThe GAZ Gazelle is the 2nd best-selling nameplate in Kazakhstan in 2016. 

Perennial leader Lada loses two-third of its sales compared to a year ago, falling to 8.147 units and 17.4% share vs. 25.2% in 2015. Renault (-55%) manages to creep up one spot to #3, ahead of Hyundai (-68%), Kia (-66%) GAZ (-53%), Volkswagen (-56%) and UAZ (-51%) all dropping as fast or faster than the market. Nissan (-25%), manages to increase it market share by one percentage point at 3% in 9th spot but Kamaz (+42%), Lexus (+89%), Hyundai Trucks (+89%) and JAC (+516%) sign the most impressive – and only – year-on-year gains in the Top 20. BMW (+41%) and Datsun (+350%) amlso shine while Ravon (#19), the replacement brand for UZ-Daewoo, and Chinese carmaker Lifan (#24) make their entrance in the sales charts.

lada-4x4-kazakhstan-2016Thanks to sales down just 7%, the Lada 4×4 ranks 4th overall in 2016 vs. 10th last year.

The Kazakh models ranking is completely reshuffled for 2016, starting with the 15 spot-jump to #1 of the Toyota Camry mentioned above. The GAZ Gazelle follows the market at -52% but gains four spots to #2 overall, distancing the Lada Priora (-62%) and 4×4 (-7%) by just two and 26 units respectively. The Lada Granta (-74%) falls three ranks to #5 but still makes it three Ladas in the Top 5 like in 2015. The Renault Duster (-50%) advances to #6 and the VW Polo (-58%) to #7, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado posts a stunning 17% increase, gaining 11 spots to #9 while the Toyota Land Cruiser 200 is yup an staggering 78% and 17 ranks to #10.

Thanks to autoconsulting.kz, we can share with you September data for Kazakhstan, a market that continues to freefall with deliveries down to just 3.357 units, a 60% drop over September 2015 which was itself down 42% on September 2014. The year-to-date tally amounts to a meagre 32.582 units, down 58% on the same period in 2015.

New brand Ravon, replacing UZ-Daewoo, shoots up 13 spots on last month to #14 with 1.4% share thanks to the arrival of the R3 (aka Nexia) directly at #27 in the models ranking.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 170 All-models by clicking on the title *

Thanks to autoconsulting.kz, we can share with you August data for Kazakhstan, a market that continues to struggle with sales down 44% to 3.800 on a month of August 2015 that was already freefalling 54%. Year-to-date, Kazakh sales amount to 29.199 units, a 58% implosion on the same period a year ago. Toyota brilliantly takes the lead of the brands ranking in August thanks to sales surging 70% to 781 for a 20.6% share, overtaking traditional leader Lada down 45% to 683 and 18%. Hyundai (-61%), Kia (-43%), Renault (-71%) and GAZ (-63%) follow but all skid down, while Kamaz (+47%), Lexus (+200%), JAC (#13), BMW (+169%) and Peugeot (163%) are among the rare manufacturers managing a year-on-year increase.

* See the Top 45 All-brands and Top 50 models by clicking on the title *

Thanks to autoconsulting.kz, we can now share with you July data for Kazakhstan, a market engulfed in recession with sales down 61% year-on-year this month to just 3.393 units. Keeping in mind July 2015 was already down 46% on the prior year, the 2016 year-to-date tally now stands at 25.399, down 59% on the same period last year. Russian carmaker Lada exactly follows the market at -61% to 20.7% share, whereas Toyota doubles its market share compared to a year ago to 16.1% thanks to deliveries down “just” 21%. Below, Hyundai (-72%), Kia (-71%) and Renault (-70%) implode. Heavy truck manufacturer Kamaz (+15%) is the only brand gaining ground in the Top 10. In the models ranking, the Toyota Camry frankly outpaces all Ladas to take the lead of the charts thanks to 361 sales and 10.6% share, ahead of the Lada Granta (206) and the valiant Lada 4×4 (200). The GAZ Gazelle, Lada Priora, Hyundai Elantra and Accent follow.

Thanks to autoconsulting.kz, we can share with you today sales data for Kazakhstan over the First Half of 2016. The Kazakh market continues its freefall in 2016 with volumes retracting by more than half at -59% year-on-year to just 21.870 units. Russian carmaker Lada remains the most popular brand in the country despite sales down 74% to 4.309 and 19.7% share vs. 31.4% a year ago. Toyota is catching up though, seeing its market share jump from 8% over H1 2015 to 17% now thanks to sales down just 13% to 3.719. Renault (-39%) also improves its market share significantly from 6.9% to 10.8%.

Toyota Camry Kazakhstan June 2016. Picture courtesy zr.ruThe Toyota Camry shoots up to #2 overall in Kazakhstan over H1 2016. 

On the opposite, Hyundai and Kia, both down 76% lose 5 and 6 percentage points of market share respectively. Other great gainers include Nissan, Lexus, JAC, Mazda and MG. Newcomers Datsun (#22) and Lifan (#32) have not chosen the best of times to enter the Kazakh market. Despite being at the end of its life, the Lada Priora takes the lead of Kazakh models ranking with sales down 47% to 9% share, distancing the Toyota Camry down 3% and up 10 spots on a year ago to #2 and the Renault Duster down 36% but up 5 ranks to #3. The Lada 4×4 (-30%), VW Polo (-38%), Renault Sandero (-10%) and Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (-10%) also gain market share in the Top 10.

Kazakhstan March 2016: Lada implodes (-80%) in market down 58%

Lada Priora Kazakhstan March 2016Even though Lada sales are down 80%, the Priora is back to #1 in Kazakhstan.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 50 models by clicking on the title *

After a two month-hiatus, Kazakhstan is back on BSCB and the market has changed drastically since our last update, sinking further into recession. March sales are down an abysmal 57% year-on-year to just 3.573 sales, pulling the First Quarter volume down 58% to 10.564 units. It would appear the crisis hitting Russia and Ukraine is spreading across the car market of the ex-USSR countries. As is often the case (notably in Ukraine), significantly reduced volumes trigger a complete reshuffle of the brands order. Lada implodes at -80% over the first three months of 2016 and owes its first place to a slightly better March volume (791). Toyota led the way both in January and February and ranks #2 so far in 2016 with 1.821 sales and 17.2% share (-15%) vs. 1.848 and 17.5% (-80%) for Lada. The Russian carmaker held 36.8% of the Kazakh market only a year ago.

Renault Duster Kazakhstan March 2016. Picture courtesy of Illva Davidovich idphoto.kzThe Renault Duster ranks #2 in Kazakhstan so far this year. 

Mimicking its performance in Ukraine, French carmaker Renault manages to improve by 17% so far this year, earning an excellent third spot with 1.546 sales and 14.6% share. Among passenger car brands, only Peugeot (+160%), MG (+150%), Mazda (+18%) and Suzuki (+23%) also manage to gain ground in a devastating market, with Datsun (#21), JAC (#27) and Lifan (#29) choosing the wrong time to enter the Kazakh market. Despite losing almost all its steam in the brands ranking, Lada manages to place the Priora in the models pole position so far in 2016 – a title it lost in 2015 to the Hyundai Accent – with 902 sales and 8.5% share (49% of Lada sales so far in Kazakhstan) and a whopping 15% share in March. It is followed this month by the Renault Sandero (5.9%) and Duster (5.8%) with the GAZ Gazelle and Hyundai Accent rounding up the Top 5. Leader at end-February, the Toyota Camry slumps to #5 due to a poor 10th place in March.

The economic recession in neighbouring Russia has triggered a massive influx of grey near-new imports into Kazakhstan and the crumbling apart of the local new car market, down 40% in 2015 to just 97.399 units. Adding an estimated 60.000 grey imports shows a relatively stable market otherwise. Lada remains by far the market leader over the full year at 25.2% and despite sales down 46%, but fell well below 20% towards the end of the year when it was under intense pressure from UZ-Daewoo and Renault. Keeping the pole position in 2016 may prove much harder than expected for Lada.

Lada Granta Kazakhstan 2015. Picture courtesy motorpage.ruThe Granta becomes the best-selling Lada in Kazakhstan this year.

Hyundai (-21%) improves its market share by 3 percentage points over a year ago to 11.5% in 2nd place, overtaking sister brand Kia (-47%) at 9.6%. Renault is up 4% and goes from 5% in 2014 to 8.7% of the market in 2015, landing in 4th position. Notice also Volkswagen up 11%, Geely down just 11% to improve to #12 and 2% share, Ford up 8%, MG up 21%, Audi up 23% and Mazda up 49%. Chinese carmaker JAC at #36 but #12 in December, and Datsun – launched in December when it sold 38 units – make their first appearance in the Kazakh brands ranking.

VW Polo Kazakhstan 2015. Picture courtesy of zr.ruVW Polo sales are up 7% year-on-year in Kazakhstan: it ranked #1 in December. 

In the models ranking, the Hyundai Accent manages to end four consecutive years of Lada reign by dropping ‘just’ 27% to 7.396 sales and edging past the Lada Granta (-39% to 7.285) by end-November. Leader from 2011 to 2014, the Lada Priora falls 61% to third place while the Largus (-15%) makes it three Ladas in the Top 4 and the Kalina (#9) and 4×4 (#10) make it five in the Top 10. The GAZ Gazelle gains one percentage point of market share thanks to sales down only 24% at #6 while the Renault Duster (-20%) and VW Polo (+7%) do even better just below. The Renault Sandero (+28%) is up 11 ranks to #12, the Hyundai Elantra (+22%) up 9 to #13 and the Renault Logan (+26%) up 10 to #14.

No sign of improvement for the Kazakh market, on the contrary: new car sales are down 54% year-on-year in November to 6.261 units, pulling the year-to-date total down 40% to just 90.971 deliveries. The reasons behind this market collapse are multiple, among which the depressed economy in neighbouring Russia and a new flow of grey market imports from Russia that has had a nefarious impact on the health of the Kazakh market. In the brands ranking, logically Lada is among the worse hit by the crisis – as their dealer network has been hit full-frontal by grey imports from Russia. The Russian carmaker is still the #1 brand in Kazakhstan, but at only 14.7% share it is under intense pressure from Uz-Daewoo (14.3%) with Renault also strong at 12.3%. For reference, one year ago in November 2014 Lada held 27.8% of the Kazakh market, Uz-Daewoo 6.6% and Renault 5%.

UZ Daewoo Gentra Kazakhstan November 2015. Picture courtesy uzdaewoo.kzThe Daewoo Gentra is the best-selling nameplate in Kazakhstan in November.

Model-wise, the main event this month is the historical accession to the year-to-date pole position of the Hyundai Accent thanks to 400 sales and 6.4% share this month, lifting the nameplate to 7.119 units and 7.8% vs. a very weak 196 and 3.1% (#12) for the Lada Granta adding up to just 6.959 sales after 11 months. In fact, the best-selling Lada in Kazakhstan this month is the Priora at a paltry 9th place. Uz-Daewoo manages a first-ever one-two with the Gentra at #1 (6.7%) and the Nexia at #2 (6.4%). Notice also the Renault Sandero up to #4 and the Toyota Hilux up to #15.
