Lada Vesta

The Russian new car market is up 81.2% year-on-year in April to 137,047 units, however it remains down -9.8% on pre-sanctions April 2021. The year-to-date tally is now up 89.4% to 467,739 but down -9.3% on the same period in 2021. Market leader Lada trails the market at +67.2% but holds 30.8% share which is better than its YTD level of 28.5%. Haval (+113.6%) is at 10.6% share while Chery (+38.9%) passes Geely (+61.5%) to #4.
