Dynamics of car sales by segments in 2021


Last year, sales of new passenger cars in Russia were 1 million 535.9 thousand units, which is 3.3% higher than in 2020. Experts of the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT" note that in the majority (6 out of 8) of the presented market segments there is a positive trend. Segments B (-4.5%) and C (-28.5%) went into the "minus". The best growth (+21.1%) was demonstrated by coupes and convertibles. Traditionally, SUVs remain the largest segment of the Russian market. Thus, for the previous year, 787.3 thousand new crossovers and SUVs (+9.2%) were sold, which accounted for more than a half (51.3%) of the total number of sold passenger cars in Russia.

This happened for the first time in the country. Hyundai Creta (68.1 thousand units; -7.4%) kept the leadership there, followed by LADA Niva (51.2 thousand units; +4.8%) and Renault Duster (41.5 thousand units; +31.1%). Segment B ranks the second, with a share of 34.8% the previous year. Cars of this class in January-December 2021 sold 534 thousand units (-4.5%). The leader here is the domestic LADA Vesta (113.7 thousand units; +6%). The second place in terms of sales is occupied by LADA Granta (111.4 thousand units; -11.6%), and Kia Rio finishes the top three (82.9 thousand units; -5.8%). Next, with a huge backlog, is segment D, which accounted for 5.5% in 2021.

Sales of vehicles of this class were 84.4 thousand units, by showing an increase of 18.3%. We also note that the share of each of the remaining segments is less than 3%, and among pickups and coupes / convertibles, it does not even reach 1%. Information about their sales and leading models is shown in the picture.
