May showed an increase of sales of new cars by 18%

Published statistics of sales of new cars in Russia. Is it possible to say that the decline began? No! Growth, oddly enough continues, and in the last month of spring, he made a considerable 18% compared to the previous period in 2017, but many experts insisted that the fall is inevitable it will happen if not in the next few months, exactly six months later. Such words sounded from the beginning of 2018. In the meantime, someone suggests the market has.

 

In may 2018, were sold for 22 thousand cars more than in the same month a year earlier. The number of cars sold amounted to 147.525 units. From January to may were sold almost 700 thousand cars, according to the website of the “Association of European Businesses”.

Sales on the Russian automotive market continue to recover at a steady pace. Total revenue for the first five months of the current year is 20% – a significant step forward from a growth rate of 5% in 2017. This encouraging trend reflects a positive trend in the retail sector of the economy in General and observes a steady increase in consumer confidence.

Not without a spoon of tar in a optimistic slender the picture, which repeatedly describes the Chairman of the Committee of car manufacturers AEB, Joerg Schreiber. The weakening of the ruble has prompted many buyers to spend the savings on the purchase of cars due to fears of further decline of the rating of the national currency in world currency markets.

It remains to be seen how this factor will adversely affect car sales in the future, and that the weakening and the inevitable rise in prices for new cars will continue, no doubt for anybody.

We should not forget about permanent, seasonal, interseasonal and the planned rise in prices of cars. And that is sad for the Russian motorist – the rise in prices is observed not only in a foreign car models, the Assembly of which is localized on the territory of the Russian Federation, but also on the domestic brand and car model. How many times has raised the prices of their products AVTOVAZ and UAZ, it’s difficult to count, because it happens very regularly.

May showed an increase of sales of new cars by 18%

Cheap (old) car model priors like (prices start from 424.900 rubles) or SUV Lada 4×4 (the minimum price tag 469.900 rubles) will soon leave the Assembly line. There will be only modern the new version: Vesta, Xray. But their value even in the minimum configuration is not the most affordable for most motorists in the country, from 580 thousand and above, and this “above” is 900,000 rubles. With the increase in fuel prices in recent years and the struggle of the authorities for road safety (know the methods), such prices for the domestic product will seem most manifestly excessive. We are really not talking about a trivial increase in the cost of living and rising prices on food cart (real, not virtual).

Therefore, it is possible to make a premature conclusion, that the growth of sales of cars can really be not eternal and sooner or later he is able to change the vector to the opposite, especially if the state will curtail a program to support the automobile industry.

Well, if we ignore the reasoning and sentiment, and look at the real situation, it appears that all automakers, with rare exceptions, in may showed stable and significant sales growth in all price categories.

Leaders (may 2018) will remain the same:

Lada + 14% (28.654 sec.)
