Car Sales Russia: 2011

I believe only 2008 had more cars sold than this year in Russia. With a 39% increase, it was a buoyant year. This was the lowest market share for home brand car Lada apart from 2008. Among the ten best selling models, nine were locally produced so there is a strong car manufacturing industry here. Imported cars are quite highly taxed.

1 Lada 578,400 21.8%
2 Chevolet 173,500 6.5%
3 Hyundai 163,400 6.2%
4 Renault 154,700 5.8%
5 Kia 152,900 5.8%
6 Nissan 138,800 5.2%
7 VW 130,300 4.9%
8 Toyota 119,500 4.5%
9 Ford 118,000 4.4%
10 Daewoo 92,800 3.5%
11 GAZ 89,800 3.4%
12 Mitsubis 74,200 2.8%
13 Skoda 74,100 2.8%
14 Opel 67,600 2.5%
15 UAZ 57,100 2.2%
16 Peugeot 44,300 1.7%
17 Mazda 39,700 1.5%
18 Suzuki 35,500 1.3%
19 Mercedes 31,800 1.2%
20 Fiat 28,300 1.1%
21 BMW 28,200 1.1%
22 Citroen 27,600 1.0%
23 Audi 23,250 0.9%
24 Ssangy 22,700 0.9%
25 Chance 20,000 0.8%
26 Volvo 19,200 0.7%
27 Honda 19,100 0.7%
28 Lifan 17,900 0.7%
29 Lexus 13,700 0.5%
30 Land Rov 13,200 0.5%
31 Subaru 12,400 0.5%

36 Great Wall 6,800 0.3%
37 Geely 6,100 0.2%
38 IZH 5,200 0.2%
39 Haima 3,100 0.1%
40 Chrysler 2,300 0.1%
41 Cadilac 2,200 0.1%
42 Porsche 2,200 0.1%
43 BYD 2,000 0.1%
44 MINI 2,000 0.1%
45 Tagaz 1,800 0.1%
46 Jaguar 1,200 0.0%
47 Seat 1,100 0.0%
Total 2,653,500

Big Gains: Hyundai (+88%), Nissan (+74%), VW (+96%) and Lifan (+133%).
Market Share Losses: Lada (+12%), GAZ (+17%), UAZ (+16%), Chance (+14%), Honda (+5%) and Chery (-18%).

Did you know? Over 80% of Renault cars sold in Russia are actually Dacia models sold with a Renault logo.

I wonder: Can the car sales boom last in Russia?
