New luxury car market grows for the first time in seven months


Since October of the previous year, the market of new cars in the Luxury segment has experienced a decline, and the beginning of 2021 continued this negative trend, according to the experts of the AUTOSTAT agency. So, in January this market collapsed by 70%, in February - by 61%, in March - by 40%. However, April 2021 reversed this trend, demonstrating positive dynamics - for the first time during the previous seven months.

Thus, according to the agency, 123 new luxury cars were purchased in April, which is 86% higher than a year ago. However, experts believe that there have been no profound changes in this segment, and that the “plus” was only due to the low base of April last year. Recall that in April 2020, many car dealerships were closed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Note that the Russians have not purchased a single Maserati car per a month. As for the rest of the brands that we traditionally refer to the Luxury segment, most of them have improved their performance in compare with the previous year. The rating of the most popular luxury brands in April 2021 was topped by Bentley - residents of the Russian Federation bought 54 such cars, which is twice as much as a year ago. Rolls-Royce occupied the second place in this rating with a result of 36 units (growth by 3 times), the third place belonged to Mercedes-Benz Maybach S-Class (15 units: + 67%). In addition, residents of our country bought 7 new Lamborghini cars (-13%), 6 - Ferrari (+ 20%) and 5 - Aston Martin (5 times growth) in April.

Traditionally, luxury cars are most often purchased in the capital: in April, Moscow accounted for about 70% of such purchases. Experts of "AUTOSTAT" agency note that in total since the beginning of the year 260 luxury cars have been purchased in the Russian Federation, which is 28% lower than in January-April of the previous year.
