440.000 cars sold in Russia within January – April period of 2016

RusAutoNews.Com  – In April 2016, sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles decreased by 8,5% compared to April 2015 or by 11.269 units, and amounted to 121 272 cars sold in Russia, according to the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee (AEB AMC).

This year in January—April 440.583 cars were sold.

Joerg Schreiber, Chairman of the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee commented: “Total market performance continues to make steady, although painfully slow progress towards finding its bottom in terms of year-on-year trend. Meanwhile, absolute sales volume has fallen to the lowest level in 10 years, equally in the months of March and April as well as in cumulative result during the first 4 months of the year. Under these circumstances, the decision of the Russian government to extend market stimulation measures is a highly welcome and appropriate measure intended to help the market to get through what is probably the toughest period in its recent history”.
