The Russian car market in 2016 decreased by 11%

Sales of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in Russia in December fell by 1% to 145668 cars. According to the Association of European Business, by the results of 2016, the Russian car market decreased by 11% to 1 million 425 thousand 721 cars.

As noted in the AEB, the almost achieved balance in sales of December to the previous year draws a line under a similar balance in the fourth quarter (-0.9% against the same period of the last year). Comparing with double-digit figures of falling in the first nine months of the year, it is a good result. The market as a whole still needs a positive reversal, but, obviously, it is in the process of final bottoming. AEB hopes that in 2017 the market has the potential to complete a 4-year period of decline and return to moderate growth. It is expected that the total size of the market will be 1.48 million cars, which is 4% more than in the previous year.

Leadership in the Russian car market is held by AVTOVAZ, which sold 266296 cars in 2016, which is less by 1% than a year ago. The second place in terms of sales was taken by KIA - sales of 149567 cars (-9%) provided the Korean brand with the leadership in the foreign car market. Hyundai keeps the third line with 145,254 sold cars, which is less by 10% than in 2015. Then Renault follows - cars of this brand were chosen by 117,230 buyers (-3%). The top five of leaders is closed by Toyota, whose sales were 94,568 cars (-4%). Top-10 of best-selling brands includes also Volkswagen (74221 units, -5%), Nissan (70464 units, -23%), GAZ (55803 units, + 9%), Skoda (55386 units, + 1%) and UAZ (48848 units, + 1%).

The most sold model in Russia in 2016 was Hyundai Solaris with a score of 90380 vehicles (-22%). In the second place there is LADA Granta, whose sales were 87,726 vehicles (-27%). The third result was shown by KIA Rio - 87662 sold cars, which is less by 10% than in 2015. Sedan LADA Vesta found 55174 customers, by taking the fourth line of the sales ranking. Sales of the Volkswagen Polo sedan grew by 5% to 47,702 units.
