Automakers continue to cut the model ranges for the Russian car market. This is evidenced by statistics. According to the analytic agency "AUTOSTAT", in 2019, only 275 models of new cars of 48 brands were officially sold in the Russian market in 2019. This is less by almost a third (31.4%) in compare with 2014 (401 models).

Such a poor model range has not been observed since 2005. And then only 4 Chinese brands were presented in our market, and now they are 11. The local maximum (350 models) was observed in 2008, and the crisis year of 2009 did not lead to such a significant reduction in the model range of automaker as it is now. In the future, from 2011 to 2014, there was an increase from 353 to 401 models. A significant reduction took place in 2015–2016 (up to 375 and 326, respectively), and in 2017–2018 the number of models was about 300 units.

According to the head of the analytics department of AUTOSTAT, Andrey Toptun, manufacturers do not bring a large number of new models to the Russian market for economic reasons. The cost of certification for each model is high and sales are minimal. It is also not advisable to produce a wide model range at assembly plants in Russia, because suppliers are not interested in small volumes. According to Andrey Toptun, in the coming years we should not expect the growth in the model series, but there will not be a significant reduction either. The model ranges are more or less optimized and there is only the replacement of old models to new ones.
