Estonia: 1970-2023 Historical info now available

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 19701991 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 five models able to snap the pole position at least twice: the Toyota Corolla (2005 and 2006), the Renault Megane (2009 and 2010), the Honda CR-V (2007 and 2013), Skoda Octavia (2011, 2014 and from 2016 to 2018) and Toyota RAV4 (since 2019). The Mazda6 (2008), Toyota Avensis (2012) and Nissan Qashqai (2015) topped the annual Estonian charts just once.
