Russia keeps aligning very encouraging results over the past few months and June is the fourth consecutive month of year-on-year gain and the largest so far at +15% to 141.084 registrations, the largest year-on-year gain since August 2012, propelling the year-to-date tally up 6.9% to 718.529 units. The brands ranking is extremely stable with the Top 12 unchanged on last month. The market growth is concentrated onto the most popular brand, with the Top 8 best-selling manufacturers all either outpacing or equalling the market. Leader Lada is strong with a 23% gain ahead of Kia (+31%), Hyundai (+22%), Renault (+21%) and Toyota (+28%). Ford (+24%) also shines at #10. Beyond the Top 10, notice Mazda (+29%), Datsun (+23%), Mitsubishi (+22%) and Chery (+56%) all posting solid gains. Among smaller brands, Zotye (+414%), Smart (+144%), Changan (+267%) and Isuzu (+118%) impress albeit from very low bases.

Model-wise, the Lada Granta reclaims the top spot for the first time since last December and only the third time in the past 12 months thanks to deliveries up a robust 18% to 6.1% share. In contrast, the Kia Rio is down 7% and the Hyundai Solaris down 14%: this is not what we got used to in the past year or so. The Lada Vesta is knocked down to #4 but gains 29% year-on-year while the Hyundai Creta continues to top the SUV charts albeit with its smallest share this year at 2.8% and only 89 units above the Renault Duster (+1%). The Toyota RAV4 shoots up 77% to #8, the Kia Sportage is up 72% to #11, the Lada XRAY up 54% but down 5 spots on May to #14, the VW Tiguan up 202% to #17, the Nissan Terrano up 55% to #22 and the Mazda CX-5 up 37% to #25. Yet SUVs don’t have the monopoly of spectacular gains: the Lada Kalina is up 49% and the Datsun on-DO up 77%.

  1. A positive trend, finally. But as Matt points out in his Russia H1 2017 update, the current level is still half (!) the result of five years ago (1.413.769). Image the road ahead!
