The automotive market of Russia, which in January showed the record growth, nevertheless, dropped out of the top five European leaders. According to the data obtained by the agency "AUTOSTAT" in the national associations of European automakers, Germany remains the leader by sales of cars in January, where 269,427 cars were sold (+ 12%).

As the Automobile Industry Association of Germany (VDA) notes, despite the successful beginning of the year, the result of January should not be overestimated, because this month traditionally has the smallest sales volume, and in the future the growth rates will not be so high. Italy is on the second place, whose dealers sold 177,822 vehicles (+ 3.4%). As noted in the Italian Association of Automobile Manufacturers (ANFIA), this is the best result since 2010. The third place was taken by Great Britain with the index of 163,615 sold cars (-6.3%).

As noted in the British Society of Automobile Manufacturers and Auto Dealers (SMMT), in the face of political and economic instability in the country, the negative dynamics of sales will continue in 2018. France is the next, whose result was 156,851 cars (+ 2.5%). Spain closes the top-five of leaders this time, car market of which grew by 20% in January and it was 101 661 cars.

As noted in the Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Cars and Trucks (ANFAC), despite a high start in 2018, in February, a decline in growth is expected due to a reduction in orders for new cars in the last month. If, when considering the car market in Europe we take into account Russia, then our country fell out of the TOP-5 and took the sixth line of the European rating. According to preliminary estimates of the agency "AUTOSTAT", sales of cars were about 97 thousand units (excluding LCV) in the last month.
