Russian car market has increased by 290% in April 2021

RusAutoNewsCom. – As announced by the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee, Russian car market has increased by 290.4%, or by 113,042 units year-on-year in April 2021, and amounted to 151,964 vehicles.

Within the January – April period of this year 515,934 cars were sold in total, 100,832 units or 24.3% more then last year’s figure.

Thomas Staertzel, Chairman of the committee has commented: “April 2021 new car sales are 151 964 units and 290.4% higher than the “Black April” of the last year. Especially the four biggest local manufacturers show above-market performance compared to the same month of the last year when the lockdown affected them most. The total sales of the first four months 2021 are 515,934 units and, as expected, 24.3% higher than 2020, but 4.5% below the sales of the same period of 2019. So far, the sales achievement of this year supports our year-end forecast of 2,1 % sales increase vs. last year, but, with the market getting its real trace, the AMC will be able to update its annual forecast in July. The state support measures are still needed to further stabilize the customer demand and the business.”
