Exclusive to BSCB, we now have access to an All-models ranking for the First Half of 2015 in Russia. Light Commercial Vehicles are now included, which means the GAZ Gazelle finds its way up to 4th place overall with 2.7% share vs. #7 over the Full Year 2014. The rest of the Top 25 stays untouched, with the antediluvian UAZ Bukhanka pointing its bread-loaf head at #26 vs. #33 in 2014. The Daewoo Gentra (#28), Nissan Terrano (#31) and Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (#33) also post much-improved rankings, while the Lexus NX surges to #35 with 5.206 sales or 55% of the brand’s sales in Russia over the period.
The Dongfeng Fengshen H30 lands at #197.
The Nissan Sentra leaps up to #36 while the BMW X5 (#51), Kia Soul (#52), Mercedes C-Class (#55), Hyundai Elantra (#57), Mercedes S-Class (#63) and GLA (#72), Ford Ecosport (#76) and Range Rover (#80) all make their entry into the Russian Top 100 vs. to their 2014 respective ranking. It’s not a good time to launch new models in Russia with the overall market freefalling 36% to just 782.094 registrations. The Datsun On-DO is the only all-new model inside the Top 130, landing directly at #39 with 0.6% market share, with the next best things being the Land Rover Discovery Sport (#133), Dongfeng H30 (#197), Dongfeng S30 (#218), Ford Fiesta (#223), Lifan X50 (#262) and Brilliance H230 (#286).
