The average age of Lada cars is almost 19 years

Automotive publication Motor1 conducted a large-scale study, which involved 705 available car models and 30 manufacturers from around the world.

The analysis showed that not all world market players update their cars with the same frequency. As a result, Lada and Tesla topped the list of car brands with the oldest model lines in 2022.

The calculation of the average age of a car is made by calculating the time difference between the beginning of December and the day the production car was officially announced to the public. Facelift, restyling and any kind of updates, except for the release of a new generation, were not taken into account.

The third generation Chevrolet Montana , introduced last week, is the youngest car so far. On the other hand, the Lada 4×4 or the original Niva, introduced in April 1977, is the oldest car in the ranking.
