Lada Granta

Excellent month once again for car sales in Russia, up 25% year-on-year in February to 206,873 registrations. The year-to-date total is up 23% to 361,279 units. The Lada Priora takes the lead this month with 10,027 sales and 4.8% share, and also in 2012 year-to-date at 17,597 units and 4.9%. It is the 5th time in the last 12 months that the Priora is #1 in Russia and the first time since last September.

Hyundai Solaris

The Hyundai Solaris reaches its highest ranking ever at 9,308 sales and 4.5% for an amazing second place – possibly the highest ranking ever reached by a foreign model in Russia! (Even though it is built locally) The Solaris may even deliver an unheard-of pole position in the next months before the Granta reaches its full potential… Best-seller in 2011 and in January, the Lada Kalina falls to #3 this month with 8,217 units and 4% and #2 year-to-date at 4.6% share. Solid month for the Ford Focus, #4 at 3.2% and the Kia Rio, #5 at 2.9%, up 108% year-on-year.

After appearing in the ranking for the first time last month, the much awaited Lada Granta is up 14 spots and 186% on January to reach a promising 7th place with 5,618 sales and 2.7%, just above the Samara it replaces while the Lada 2105/7 is down to #14. Other great performers this year include the Chevrolet Cruze and Nissan Juke both up 2 ranks to #16 and #17 respectively – which means the Juke has passed the Qashqai (#18) for the first time! Notice also the VW Tiguan up to #19 and the Toyota Camry up to #22.

  1. Hey Matt,
    I think it’s worth noting that it’s due to the Russia-assembled sedan version that VW Polo ranks 9 here, because hatchback Polos have never been too popular in this country.
    Cheers,
    Anton

  2. Hello all, I would like to start some kind of a research about what really are the motivations and factors that make some make or model especially appealing in one country and an absolute redundant in an other.
    As a starting point, dependability, reliability, ease of repair/maintenance and cost of spare parts must all play an important role, however, other than the reputation of the authorized dealer and the somewhat mysterious image perception associated with one make in any particular country, I believe there are some other important factors that influence the buying decision for the masses in any given market.
    I think cars forums provide a good source of knowledge, albeit, it is not a very reliable source, nevertheless, I would like to know from your knowledge where should I start. Any other advice is highly appreciated.
    you can contact me in my email:
    Thank you all.
