Russia Car/LCV Sales : 2018


Sales were up 5.6% in December and 12.8% for the year. In January of 2019, a tax increase is expected so sales may be affected. The recent sales boom may be cut back also by political issues too. Below the % column is market share and the +/- is a shift in ales up or down. Green shows market share gain, yellow also means sales up but a drop in share. Blue is down in sales.

Lada is top and getting stronger gradually. The Korean duo is 2 - 3 and also exceeding the market increase. Mitsubishi is soaring up the chart as is Honda further down the list. No frills brand Datsun isn't faring so well and Fiat appears to be exiting the market. Ravon (think Daewoo) too stopped sales during the year.

The question mark at the bottom is that some brands are not reporting sales, usually small exclusive ones but it does affect what the total would be.
