Sales data of models produced locally show the UZ-Daewoo Nexia in the lead at home in Uzbekistan with 37.341 deliveries ex-factory over the first nine months of 2015, as it has been the case since 2008. Yes you have read well, a joint venture between the Uzbek government and GM-Daewoo set in place back in 1996 has kept the Daewoo brand alive – or UZ-Daewoo to be more precise (click here for more info).
Is the reign of the UZ-Daewoo Nexia coming to en end?
However the 8-year reign of the Nexia in its new home could well soon come to an end. If a victory in 2015 is certain, 2016 seems a lot less guaranteed, as a change of guard may be occurring before our eyes. Over the July-September period, the UZ-Daewoo Gentra – a rebadged Chevrolet Optra – is in the lead with over 11.500 sales, followed by the Nexia at 9.200, the Chevrolet Cobalt at 6.300 and the Daewoo Damas at 6.100. The Gentra cements its leadership in September with 4.359 sales vs. just 3.100 for the Nexia with the Chevy Cobalt coming in third place at 2.252 units.
