The best-selling cars in Russia for the last 20 years

Models-leaders of the automotive market in Russia by years.jpg

The specialists of the analytic agency "AUTOSTAT" made a rating of the models that were the leaders of the Russian car market in 1998 - 2017. If until 2016 they all belonged to the same brand - the domestic LADA, but now, for the last two years, foreign cars are the leaders on the Russian market.

However, if we go back, the leadership of LADA was untouchable. The record holder by the number of titles was AutoVAZ "Classic", which has accumulated 10 of them for the period from 1998 to 2017. It is not surprising, because among the presented models it lasted longer on the conveyor belt.

Its hegemony was interrupted in 2005 - 2006 (LADA Samara) and in 2009 (LADA Priora). And in 2007 - 2008 and in 2010 the "classic" cars again climbed to the top step of the podium. However, the last time the share of sales of "Classic" (in 2010 - about 8%) was already four times less than in 1998 - 1999 (over 30%). During this time, there were more models on the market; competition has increased, so the bestsellers in recent years can only rely on a share of 4 - 8%.

Since 2011, the flagship models LADA - Kalina, Priora, Granta have finally come to the fore. The last one even managed to retain the title of best seller of the Russian market for three consecutive years. But it became difficult to compete with foreign cars... In 2016, the best-selling car in Russia for the first time was a foreign car - Hyundai Solaris. A year later, it was replaced in this rank by KIA Rio.

However, in January, the best-seller rating was led by LADA Vesta. It is clear that this is not indicative, but who knows, maybe in 2018 the Russian market will have a new leader? We will find out about it in a year.
