Russian car market has declined by 15% in June 2020

RusAutoNewsCom. – As announced by the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee, Russian car market has decreased by 14.6%, or by 21,038 units year-on-year in June 2020, and amounted to 122,622 vehicles.

Within the first half of this year 635,959 cars were sold in total, 192,791 units or 23.3% less then last year’s figure.

Thomas Staertzel, Chairman of the committee has commented: “After two months of sharp vehicle sales decrease, June showed signs of slow return to the previous year performance. Although dealers are operational, state support measures additionally stimulate sales and delayed purchases contribute on top, June still marks a decrease of 14, 6% vs. June 2019. These 6 months have been a rollercoaster for manufacturers and dealers with slow climbing in the beginning of the year, followed by a sharp and never experienced downhill April/May and finished by a slow recovery in June. The decrease of 23% year-on-year June is close to the new AEB 2020 forecast of 1.339 thousand sold cars, which is also a decrease of 23.9%. The new forecast relies on continuation of state support for customers purchase motivation and no second pandemic wave.”

Lada was the most populer brand of the Russian car market in June with 28,020 units sold, followed by KIA and Hyundai. Lada Granta was the most popular car model with 11,631 units sold.
