Car Sales Moldova: 2012


Moldova only into existence in 1991, when the Soviet Union ended. The language is Romanian, though the locals prefer to call it Moldovan. There are 3.5 million inhabitants who live in a country coming to grips with independence, not something they have any recent history of.

Car sales data is not easy to come by, but I managed to get this snap shot of the 2012 year. Because of limited data for 2011, the lower 15 brands do not have another year to compare them with. A 21.7% drop in sales was the reality for 2012 from 2011, with only Chevrolet and Land Rover able to report increases. To read the source of the data, please click here. Thank you to them for publishing this for us, the public.

The first two columns show 2011 and 2012 ranking, the second column in from the right is increase or decrease, and the extreme right shows market share for the major brands.
