Automotive industry in Russia - Statistics & Facts

The steadily growing Russian car market, with Moscow city accounting for the largest passenger car parc countrywide, is expected to reach over 380 thousand vehicles per thousand inhabitants by 2025.
The volume of imported vehicles to Russia has been steadily shrinking over the last years. However, the value of exported cars from the country was far behind imports worth of passenger and commercial vehicles. One of the reasons for the trade deficit in the Russian car market can be explained by Lada exports cease to European Union since 2018 due to the environmental regulations.

Passenger cars

   The national Lada was the leading brand both in the primary and secondary markets as of May 2021. Two of its models made it in the top-three of the most-sold passenger cars ranking, with Granta leading the list reporting over 90 thousand units registered during the first nine months of 2021.
A sport utility vehicle (SUV) - the most desired type of car by the Russian customer, generated the largest market sales turnover by the first half of 2021, with the Korean Hyundai as the most sold brand in this category. The second-largest segment in terms of sales was B-class, with over 110 thousand units sold during the first nine months of 2021.

Commercial vehicles

   The production volume of commercial vehicles and trucks, which was considerably lower than that of passenger cars, has been in decline over the past years in Russia.
The largest share of minivan car parc in the secondary market was accounted to Lada. In January 2021, over 500 pickups of the Toyota brand were re-registered in Russia, making it the most popular brand in this segment. Gaz was the leading manufacturer by the number of light commercial vehicles sold countrywide, while Kamaz dominated the heavy commercial vehicles' segment.
