Russian car market increased by 25% in February 2018

RusAutoNews.Com – Russian car market (new car and LCV sales) increased by 24,7 % or by 26.393 units in comparison with the same period of the previous year in Russia, and amounted to 133.177 vehicles, announced by the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee (AEB AMC).

Within January – February period of this year 235.641 cars were sold in total.

Joerg Schreiber, Chairman of the AEB AMC commented: ““Russian car market sales continue to demonstrate healthy momentum in February, extending the string of uninterrupted year-onyear growth to a robust 12-month period. Over 27% improvement in the first 2 months are an impressive turnaround for market, which battered bad news until just one year ago. Moving forward, market outlook remains positive but it is reasonable to expect that the pace of year-on-year recovery should slow down as a result of the growing base effect applying from March last year”.

LADA is the most populer brand of the Russian car market in January 2018 with 27.401 units sold.  KIA Rio was the best-selling model in January with 8979 units.
