January 25, 2013. In 2012, 97,348 new cars were sold in Yekaterinburg last year, which was 14%, or 12,278 cars more than in 2011. In December 2012, 8,277 vehicles were sold, which fell short of the number for December 2011 by 3% or 209 cars, Auto-Dealer Yekaterinburg reports.

Lada is still the best-selling car on the market, even though its sales actually declined by 56 automobiles compared to a year earlier. As a result, the share of Russian cars on the Yekaterinburg market came to 15% in 2012 compared with 21% in 2010 and 17% in 2011.

Once again, Chevrolet proved the most popular foreign car, even though it had to compete much more fiercely with Toyota last year than a year earlier. Toyota was actually the best-selling make for a few months. Kia replaced Hyundai last year as the third most popular car, while Daewoo, which was one of the top five best-selling makes in 2011, is now no longer even in the top ten.
