New car sales in Ukraine are down a painful 22% year-on-year to just 16,640 registrations, reducing the year-to-date gain to 1% on 2012 at 174,260 units. The ZAZ Sens reinforces its year-to-date leadership by holding the top spot again this month thanks to 572 sales and 3.4% and local manufacturer ZAZ manages a 1-2 in October, with the Vida – a badge-engineered previous generation Chevrolet Aveo produced locally – up to a best-ever 2nd place at 479 units and 2.9%. The Skoda Rapid also shines only two units below, up 8 spots on last month to #3, its 2nd best-ever ranking in the country.
The Lanos makes it 3 ZAZ inside the Top 5 this month, while the Renault Logan, boosted by the new model, is up a mammoth 41 spots to #6 and the Geely Emgrand EC7 down 5 to a still magnificent 7th place, its 2nd best-ever ranking here. The new generation brings the Toyota Corolla back inside the Top 10 for the first time in at least 2 years, the Renault Sandero is up 46 ranks to #15, the SsangYong Korando up 25 to #17 and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport up 48 to #25.
The Chinese offensive in Ukraine is getting stronger and stronger: the Geely MK2/Cross up to #16 makes it 3 Geelys inside the Top 16, the BYD F3 is up one to #44, the Geely Emgrand X7 up 51 to #66 and Lifan X60 up 82 to #101.
