Lifan plans to increase Russian sales by 30% in the first half of year

The company “Lifan Motors Rus”, the official distributor of Lifan cars, expects the sales increase to 30% in the first half of 2013. The main share of sales of brand is occupied by Lifan Solano sedan. A good start of sales of new model of 2012, crossover Lifan X60, and the expectation of deliveries of new models give reason to assume the continued growth in demand and greater dispersion of consumer preferences across the model range of Lifan, remarked in “Lifan Motors Rus”.

In 2012, the Russian market has sold more than 20,000 Lifan cars. At the moment, Russia is one of the priority sales markets of Lifan brand.
