Russian car market has grown by 17% in October 2017

RusAutoNews.Com – Russian car market has grown in October 2017. According to the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee (AEB AMC), the sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles in Russia increased by 17,3% compared with October 2016 or by 21.892 sold units, and amounted to 148.597 vehicles.

Within January – October period of this year 1.277.938 cars were sold in total.

Joerg Schreiber, Chairman of the AEB AMC commented “The recovery of the Russian car market continues with October sales exceeding last year’s result by a robust 17%. This is now the 8th consecutive month of year-on-year improvement, the longest period of uninterrupted growth the market of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles has experienced since 2012. Of course the size of today’s market is still a far cry from the record sales achieved in that year. But it is encouraging to see that, at the current pace of recovery, total sales in 2017 have a good chance to restore the market to the level it had in 2015”.

Lada is the most populer brand of the Russian car market with 28.638 sold units in October 2017.  KIA Rio was the best-selling model in October with 8.779 units. All models among the Top 10 are locally manufactured.
