New car sales in Belarus shoot up an incredible 70.5% year-on-year over the First Half of 2018 to 23.196 units. Renault (+30%) remains the most popular carmaker in the country but significantly trails the market to post a 25.2% share vs. 33.1% a year ago. Lada on the other hand is up 3-fold at +213% to achieve a 18.1% share, almost doubling the 9.9% it commended over the same period in 2017. As a result Lada overtakes Volkswagen (+51%) for 2nd place overall while Nissan (+94%) and Kia (+86%) both outpace the market to round up the Top 5. Hyundai (+92%), GAZ (+82%) and Ford (+79%) also shine in the Top 10 but the best performer is Chinese Geely with deliveries up 4-fold (+311%) to crack the Belorussian Top 10 at #9. Further down, Changan (+3600%), Haval (+243%), Mitsubishi (+224%), Chery (+196%), Mercedes (+95%) and Mazda (+85%) make themselves noticed. As a whole, Chinese carmakers jump 351% to hold 5.4% of the Belorussian market so far in 2018 vs. just 2% a year ago.

The Geely Atlas breaks into the Belorussian Top 10.

Model-wise, the VW Polo is headed towards a 6th connective year atop the sales charts despite trailing the market at +41% to see its share thaw from 11.4% to 9.5%. The Lada Vesta storms onto the podium thanks to sales up 9-fold on the same period in 2017 when it launched to 8.5% share. The Vesta knocks the Renault Sandero down to #2: it is up “just” 29% to 7.1% share vs. 9.4% a year ago while the Renault Logan is up a fantastic 111% but also drops one spot to #4, as do the Renault Duster (-10%) and Kaptur (+13%). The Kia Rio (+252%) is boosted by its new X-Line crossover-looking variant and the Largus (+189%) enjoys a second wind at #7. But the mots impressive performer in the Top 10 is the Geely Atlas landing directly at #10. Further down, the Lada XRAY (+221%), Nissan Almera (+159%), GAZ Next (+132%), Lada Granta (+125%), Nissan Terrano (+123%) and VW Tiguan (+109%) make themselves noticed.
