Russian car market has increased by 18% in April 2018

RusAutoNews.Com – Russian car market (new car and LCV sales) increased by 17,6% or by 22.796 units in April 2018 in comparison with the same period of the previous year, and amounted to 152.425 vehicles, announced by the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee (AEB AMC).

Within the January – April period of this year 545.345 cars were sold in total.

Joerg Schreiber, Chairman of the AEB AMC commented: ““A strong month for the Russian car market, repeating last year’s double digit gain in sales volume. Consumer appetite remains robust, supported by a growing choice of new products offered at attractive prices. The noticeable weakening of the Ruble exchange rate in recent weeks has been an extraordinary factor motivating customers to accelerate the purchase of a new car in anticipation of potential price increases. New vehicle orders have spiked as a result, and will continue to materialize as extra good news in the sales statistics in the short term”.

LADA is the most populer brand of the Russian car market in April 2018 with 30.712 units sold.  KIA Rio is the best-selling model in April with 8523 units.
