    There is one problem with this statistics: Russia is big and buying patterns vary greatly from region to region. For example, in the Far East used Japanese cars make up 90-something percent of all cars purchased (watch this video from Vladivostok: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MvOWnjalY4 – yes, all of them are right-hand drive 🙂
    And in places like Moscow and St Petersburg there is no that Lada predominance either. Unfortunately, I’ve only found Moscow statistics for the first six months of 2009: http://auto.newsru.com/article/02sep2009/top10-moscow with Ford Focus leading.

    While searching for that information, I also found a top five stolen cars list for Moscow 🙂 These are Mitsubishi Lancer, Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Camry, Honda CR-V (http://www.autonews.ru/autobusiness/news.shtml?2011/03/01/1648936)

    Cheers,

      Hey Anton, this is fascinating info! Thanks very much for the links… I will add this Moscow 6 months 2009 ranking to my Russian 2009 post to give it more perspective!
      cheers

        Oh, one more thing. What I said about the Far East was true until last year, when draconian tariffs on used cars were introduced. So now it’s more about the urban landscape than the actual market.

        Ok that’s good to know! I’m planning a trip through Mongolia and Russia so hopefully will see it first hand!!
