|The Granta is the ideal car for Russia|
Registrations for Lada are almost exclusively within its home market. There, the upheavals that afflicted other places didn't seem to impact on Russia apparently. Therefore it comes as no surprise that sales were only -1% in March and -3% YTD. The tidy range of vehicles is very much designed for local conditions.
The Granta (above) is what Russians outside of the large cities want, no nonsense cars. It was the only model that increased in sales too. The 4X4 (below) has been around for sometime now. It imbues the old Land Rover Defender with a feel of cutting edge design. Yet again, it works well in Russia where many roads and winter conditions are not easy on cars.
