According to the association, a little more than 9,000 units were registered in March, which is 45% more than in March 2020, and 43% more than in February this year.

"March has become the most "fruitful" month of the first quarter of this year," Ukrautoprom says.

According to the above statistics, in March of this year, the Chinese brand Chery managed to enter the top ten best-selling brands, which, due to a three-fold increase in registrations (up to 331 units), was able to rise to the seventh line of the ranking from 18th in March 2020.

Toyota RAV4 became the best seller on the Ukrainian market of new passenger cars, which was chosen by 644 buyers.
