Russian car market has declined by 3% in June 2019


RusAutoNewsCom. – As announced by the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee, Russian car market has decreased by 3.3%, or by 5,171 units year-on-year in June 2019, and amounted to 151,180 vehicles.

Within the first half of this year 828,750 cars were sold in total, 20,471 units or 2.4% less then last year’s figure.

Joerg Schreiber, Chairman of the committee commented: “Six months into 2019, we find the market 2.4% down year-on-year, with a second quarter that proved more challenging than the first. Market expectations for the second half of the year are not fundamentally better. It is clear that market growth in the full year of 2019 is not a realistic scenario anymore. Even with a certain trend improvement in the second half, it would appear that the best outcome the market can hope for is to equalize last year’s sales result”.

Lada was again the most populer brand of the Russian car market in June 2019 with 30,768 units sold. Lada Granta was the most populer model with 11,609 units sold in June.
