RusAutoNews.Com – According to Auto-Dealer-SPb survey, the demand for automobiles manufactured in St. Petersburg has fallen by 6%, during the first six months of 2014. The sales figures of automobiles manufactured at the four factories established in St. Petersburg are as follows:

Hyundai – 102,754 (+%1), GM – 30,686 (-%29), Nissan – 18,965 (+%6) and Toyota – 16,187 (-%0,5).

As it can be seen from the figures, the sharpest decline has been observed in GM sales. The sales figure of automobiles manufactured at Ford factory, established in Vsevolozhsk near St. Petersburg, has fallen by 54% in comparison with the previous year, with 16,992 vehicles.

The agency analysts draw attention to the increase in Nissan sales, following the renewal of its model range, and the unchanging demand for Hyundai Solaris and Toyota Camry. The models manufactured by GM and Ford in Russia seem to have completed their natural lifespans. Moreover, the model renewal works in these two factories have been postponed to 2015.
