Car dealers number has dropped to a record low in Russia since 2011


 

Autostat.- There are 3323 car dealers in Russia as of mid-October 2019, as stated by Autostat agency. This is the lowest figure since 2011.

As one may remember, a lower figure was recorded in 2010, with 3193 dealers. The numbers have recovered the next year, however, climbing up to 3444. The figure has never fallen below the 3400 mark in due course, amounting to 3450 as recently as the beginning of 2019.

It should be noted that the dealer numbers have reached the highest figure with 4092 centres in 2014, which was the only year the 4000 threshold was exceeded. In other words, the number of Russian dealers has dropped by 19% in comparison with its zenith, following the closure of 769 centres.
