Best Selling Cars Around The Globe: Georgia Has Forgotten About Russia

Over the past few of weeks we have travelled to Israel, Eritrea and Chile. Since last week you decide which country we go to next and today we make a stop to Georgia, the country, not the US State. Why? Because SexCpotatoes (cool nick!) asked for it.

Now you are sick of ex-USSR countries and have had too much vodka already, make sure you don’t drive and check out the 159 additional countries I have prepared for you to explore in my blog

Georgia has no sales data available. So there will be no article… Just kidding.

By now you will be familiar with my methodology when there is no data available for a specific country.

It’s simple.

I go online and visit my old mate YouTube, check out recent videos of the streets of the main cities of that country and voila!

Georgian consumers have been very fast to shed their Soviet past: there are virtually no Ladas anymore in the streets of the capital city Tbilisi…

(no, not a BMW!)

Instead, chances are the Toyota Corolla is in the lead of the models ranking, making Georgia the only European country and one of 18 countries in the world where it is estimated to be in pole position.

Other popular models in Georgia are the Hyundai ix35…

Toyota Camry…

Nissan Tiida…

Toyota RAV4…

and Mitsubishi Pajero. If you go to Georgia in the near future you will also notice a lot of second hand 1991 Opel Astras and various Mercedes in the streets.

This speculation is based on the observation of recent YouTube videos of the streets of Tbilisi. If you do have official models data for this country make sure to get in touch…

    Being attacked by Russia not too long ago might have soured Georgian's mood toward Russian products in general... Anyway, that "Camry" looks somewhat different than the Camrys I know of.
