Auto stats

Experts of the Institute of Car Market Research prepared statistics on car body types in July 2021. As it turned out, sedans are mostly bought in the domestic market, and used station wagons are imported en masse from abroad. When buying a new car, most also prefer a practical universal body type.


Used sedans were most often resold in Ukraine during July. There were 38% of them among domestic resales (31 thousand units). In second place — station wagons with 34% (28 thousand units). The third place was taken by cars in a hatchback body — in July they were 20% (17 thousand units) of the total number of resold cars with mileage.

The least popular body types are a commercial van (1 car sold), a limousine (6 cars) and a chaise (30 cars).
