Russia 2009: Lada Priora takes the lead, but not in Moscow!

Lada Priora

* Many thanks to Anton for the Moscow ranking! *

Russian car sales were hit hard by the Financial Crisis in 2009, down 46% at 1,465,742 units. The Lada Priora keeps climbing the ranks and becomes Russia’s best selling car this year with just under 100,000 sales and 6.8% of the market.

The Lada Samara behaves exactly like the market and holds its share at 6.2% with 90,428 sales, ahead of the Lada 2104/5/7 (-65%) and the Lada Kalina (-35%) improving its share to 4.1%.

The Renault Logan leads the foreign models for the first time at #5 with 53,869 sales (3.7%), followed by the Ford Focus (3.6%) and Chevrolet Lacetti (2%). Although foreign, they are all produced locally. The Lada 4×4 (aka Niva) makes a remarkable come back in the Top 10 at #9, even improving its sales year-on-year by 10%!

The models ranking is completely different in Moscow: over the first 6 months of the year, the Ford Focuus is by far #1 with 7,946 sales, ahead of the Chevrolet Lacetti, Opel Astra and Mazda3. The first Lada is only #9 (2104-7) and the Priora is… 24th!
