t’s not surprising when you look at these sales figures.
There are a lot of concerns about the future of the Chevrolet Camaro. Sales have been lackluster compared to its chief rivals, the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. 2020’s third-quarter sales of the Camaro dropped to 8,366 units, a nearly 32 percent drop compared to the same period last year.
While the global pandemic has affected automaker sales worldwide, it’s still a noticeable drop compared to the Challenger and Mustang, which sold around 16,300 and 13,850 units respectively in Q3 2020. Rumors have suggested the Camaro will not be redesigned for a new generation, meaning it will be discontinued after 2023. In one country, however, the Camaro has already been discontinued.
Back in August, reports claimed that the Camaro was being killed off in Russia – and now it’s official. Visit Chevrolet’s Russian market website, and the Camaro is now noticeably absent in the model lineup. This means the only models remaining in Chevrolet’s Russian model range are the Tahoe and Traverse.
Sales of the Camaro have also been dire in Russia, so its demise isn’t all that surprising. Just 42 examples of the Camaro were sold in Russia between January and October 2020. Only five were sold last month. March was the best sales month with 12 units sold. Only one car was sold in April during lockdown and none were sold in May. Just four cars were sold between June, July, and August, and none were sold in September.
