Lada Cars in Cuba

These are everywhere all around Cuba.

In Cuba Soviet cars flood the streets, and Lada cars in particular are the most popular. The Soviet Union sent them at subsidised prices, but 20 years after its collapse, new cars and spare parts are luxury. Lada cars appeared in Cuba in the mid 1970s. They became popular in the ’80s and by the end of this decade represented more than 30% of the cars used in the country.
