After a one month-hiatus, Kazakh data is back on BSCB. New car sales in Kazakhstan take a hit in September: down 9% to 14,580 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 122,063 units, now up a shy 5% on 2013. The market is definitely pausing after gaining 74% over the Full Year 2014: sales are down 4% over the third quarter of 2014 to 45,462 units, potentially impacted by the Russian economic difficulties linked to the Ukrainian crisis. Model sales data is available for Q3 2014 but only a ranking for September. Over Q3, the Lada Priora is still the best-seller but in free fall at -28%. It is followed by the Hyundai Accent (+43%), Lada Granta (+17%), Kia Rio (+226%) and Lada Largus (+65%).

The UZ-Daewoo Gentra lands directly in 6th place thanks to 2.036 sales and 4.5% share, while the UZ-Daewoo Nexia is down 56% year-on-year but back up to #7 and 3.4% share during Q3 vs. #11 and 2.1% year-to-date. The Lada Kalina confirms its new generation has transformed the nameplate from a non-seller to a Top 10 blockbuster in Kazakhstan (#8), the Skoda Rapid breaks into the Kazakh Top 10 at #9 vs. #12 year-to-date, the Toyota Camry is up to #12 vs. #17 YTD and the Nissan Almera Classic is up to #15 vs. #25. Finally we have a new strong seller breaking onto the Kazakh scene over the period: the Chevrolet Cobalt ranks #25 over Q3 with 467 sales and 1% share but is already #14 in September.

  1. Renault low cost cars fit perfectly with the rough roads of this part of the World.

    Peugeot-Citroen should also make a cheap SUV based on the C-Elysée/301 platform.
