Ukraine: 1970-2017 Historical Info now available

1966 ZAZ 966

Historical info spanning the past five decades is now available for Ukraine on BSCB! For the 19701991 period, the data is for USSR which Ukraine belonged to then, and Lada models reigned supreme. Between 1992 and 2005 I do not have any models information at all about the Ukrainian new car market so if you do, please ensure you get in touch by commenting on this post.

From 2006 onwards, data starts to trickle down to become full-blown all-models data from 2011 on. In the past 12 years, local carmaker ZAZ which now assembles Chevrolets and Cherys in the country has monopolised the Top spot 7 times: the Lanos was #1 for 6 consecutive years from 2006 to 2011 and the Sens (a Lanos twin) took the highest honours in 2013 but that was the last of the ZAZ-dominated years. The Skoda Octavia then topped the sales charts in 2012, with the Renault Logan finishing first in 2015 and the Kia Sportage in 2016 and 2017.
