The Kazakh new car market is falling into a bottomless pit, down an abysmal 49% year-on-year in October to 7.545 registrations which pulls the year-to-date total down 37% to 84.689 units. Lada is once again in great difficulty at just 16.9% market share vs. 27.9% a year ago, while on the opposite Renault improves vastly from #9 and 3.9% in October 2014 to #2 and 12.9% this month. Similarly, Chevrolet goes from #6 and 6.2% a year ago to #3 and 9.2% this month and Volkswagen jumps from #12 and 2.7% to #6 and 7.4%. UZ-Daewoo (8.8%) follows while Hyundai (7.6%), Kia (7.2%) and Toyota (4.7%) all lose significant market share.

The GAZ Gazelle and Renault Duster are a tie for the title of best-selling nameplate in Kazakhstan in October with 478 sales and 6.3% share each, distancing the VW Polo very strong at 5.9% share vs. 3.5% year-to-date. The Lada Priora and Hyundai Accent are knocked down to #4 and #5 respectively, with the Accent now just 44 units below the Lada Granta in the 2015 rankings. A Korean pole position in the Kazakh model sales charts seems like a done – and historical – deal. The UZ-Daewoo Nexia (#6) and Gentra (#7) leap into the Top 10 as do the Renault Logan (#9) and Sandero (#10), while all Ladas except the Priora are kept outside the Top 10.
