AVTOVAZ has reached the highest number of car sales in the last seven years


RNS.- The car sales of Avtovaz have risen by 21.9% year-on-year in November with 38,064 units, as stated by the company.

It was a record breaking performance by the company, since a similar figure was achieved in December 2013 for the last time.

“38,064 car were sold last month, which indicates a 21.9% year-on-year growth (31,217 in November 2019). November 2020 has become the best period for sales on a monthly basis since December 2013, when 38,948 vehicles were sold. The success came, amongst other factors, within the framework of the advanced government car purchase programmes” – according to the statement made by Avtovaz.

As usual, Lada Granta models have become the car sales leaders with 14,540 units, following a 15.6% increase in comparison with November 2019.

Lada Vesta range took second place with 11,711 vehicles, following a 35.3% year-on-year rise.

The top-three has been completed by the passenger and commercial versions of Largus with 4052 units.

“The record numbers in the sales of Lada vehicles in November have been reached thanks to the implementation of the programmes designed by both the government and the company itself, as well as the release of the special editions of our most popular models to the market. The supply of automobiles within the scope of the advanced government procurement programmes was another factor, influencing the growth of car sales” – as told by Olivier Mornet, the executive vice-president of Avtovaz in sales and marketing.

However, despite the high demand in autumn, Mornet forecasts that the total figure in 2020 will remain below the previous year. The company, on the other hand, has managed to maintain its market share, as well as the leadership of the Lada brand in Russia.
