Where and how many cars are produced in Russia?


VAZ-2101 is 49 years old: there are more than 355 thousand of them in Russia


On April 19th, 1970, the first six models “Zhiguli” VAZ-2101 got off the assembly line of the Volga Automobile Plant: two - in blue and four - in cherry. Later the people started to call them "pennies". Today, the model is 49 years old. However, despite such a solid age (“pennies” were issued from 1970 to 1984, which means the most “youngest” of them are now about 35 years old), many of them are still not written off and, in accordance with the regular retro runs they even stay at full speed.

According to the analytic agency AUTOSTAT, as of January 1st, 2019, there were 355.6 thousand VAZ-2101 cars in our country. Moreover, over 40% of them are “registered” in two federal districts - the Siberian (the share - 22.1%) and Central (20.4%).

In the first place among the leading regions for the love of the "penny" is Irkutsk region, which has the largest parc of cars VAZ-2101 (18.4 thousand units), i.e. more than 5% of the total parc. In second place there is the Chelyabinsk Region (17 thousand units). The TOP-5 also includes Krasnoyarsk (15 thousand units), Altai (14.3 thousand units) and Krasnodar (13.9 thousand units) regions. Moscow is in the sixth place of this ranking. As it turned out, 13.6 thousand such cars are registered in the capital today.

At the same time, “pennies” are not just registered, but also represent market value, as they continue to be objects of sale. So, according to the analytic agency AUTOSTAT, by the end of 2018, 8.5 thousand of such cars were re-sold in the Russian Federation.

The following year, the car VAZ-2101 will be 50 years old. At the federal level, a number of events have been approved on the occasion of this memorable date for the domestic auto industry.
