There are 2.5 million Soviet-made cars in Russia


According to the data of the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT", almost 2.5 million passenger cars produced in the USSR, i.e. until 1992, are registered in Russia. It is about 6% of the total parc of the country (as of January 1st, 2019).

The lion's share (80%) of the Soviet-era cars falls on the LADA brand - there are about 2 million "Lada", "Samara" and "Niva", produced at the Volga car plant, totally in the Russian Federation. The second place by the number of “Soviet” cars is occupied by “Moskvich” - at the beginning of the year 228 thousand units of this brand were registered, produced on the conveyor of the already non-existing AZLK. The TOP- three of leaders of the rating is closed by "ZAZ" - the Russians own 70 thousand "Zaporozhets", assembled in the Ukrainian SSR.

Further, approximately with the same results, GAZ and UAZ brands follow (58 thousand and 57 thousand units, respectively). As a rule, they are "Volga" and passenger cars "UAZ". In addition, in the Russian roads you can find cars "IZH" of Soviet production, which are 44 thousand units totally.
We also have quite exotic SUVs produced in a car factory in Lutsk, Ukraine. At the beginning of the year in our country there were 19 thousand SUVs "Luaz" with the year of release until 1992. The remaining 4.5 thousand cars of the Soviet era are Oka models.
