Russia's Soviet-era Moskvich car entered the country's list of top 10 best-selling brands for the first time in November, data from Russian analytical agency Autostat showed.
November sales of new passenger cars in Russia increased by 113 percent year on year to 109,706 vehicles, Autostat said on Tuesday, citing data from its partner PPK.
Sales are rebounding from a slump caused by sanctions and the departure of Western automakers in 2022.
Production of the Moskvich was relaunched this year at a plant in Moscow. The Russian state purchased the factory from Renault last year for a symbolic one ruble as the French automaker left the market after Moscow's invasion of Ukraine.
