According to the study, the average age of cars in Russia is 12.9 years. At the same time, the average age of a foreign car is much less - 10.4 years. At the same time, the age of domestic cars (including CIS brands) is 16.4 years in average.
Among the foreign cars, the youngest parc is belonged to Chinese brands (5.8 years). The average age of Korean cars is 6.9 years. In the third place there are American brands (9.1 years). This figure among European cars is 10.4 years. The oldest among foreign cars are representatives of Japanese brands (the average age is 12.6 years).
If we look at domestic brands than we will see that the smallest average age is belonged to UAZ (15,5 years), hardly above it LADA cars (15,6 years). The average age of the parc of other domestic brands is 20.5 years.
As the analysts of the agency "AUTOSTAT" noted, a year ago the average age of cars in our country was 12.5 years. The increase in this indicator is largely due to a decrease in the pace of renewal of the Russian parc.
