What winter tires do Russian car owners prefer?
  • 06.12.18 What winter tires do Russian car owners prefer?

The first results of sales of Geely Atlas in Russia became known


The crossover Geely Atlas was sold in amount of 406 units since its launch in the Russian market. And in March of 2018, it was sold 74 units, in April - 149 cars, in May - 183 cars. Low sales of Geely Atlas could not be explained by the fact that the production of the model at the BelGee plant in Zhodino (Belarus) has not reached the planned volumes yet. To date, about 1000 units per month are coming off the assembly line. At the same time the production capacity of the enterprise is 60 thousand cars per year, but it is not designed only for Atlas: in the future, it will have to side with a pair of new Geely (sedan and crossover).

The company emphasizes that the current production volumes correspond to the current tasks and plans. However, it will be impossible to reach profit with such indicators. However, Atlas is sold not only in Russia, because some of the cars produced in Belarus remain in the local market. But even here the results could not be called high either for the first five months of 2018: 558 cars were sold in the republic (sales in the Belarusian market started earlier than in Russia, they were started in December of 2017).

In other countries Atlas of the Belarusian assembly is not sold yet. For example, it is represented only Geely GC6 in the "model line" column on the official website of the Kazakhstan Geely importer. There is a completely different alignment of the model in China. In the home market, the car is sold under the name Boyue and it is one of the most popular: by the end of 2017, it was sold in amount of 286 thousand 900 units.

Geely Atlas is offered for Russians with front or all wheel drive, gasoline engines with volume of 2,0 and 2,4 liters with a capacity of 141hp and 148 hp, respectively, and a 6-speed manual gearbox or hydromechanical "automatic" transmission. Subsequently, versions with a turbo engine of 1.8 liters will be brought to our market.

The Russian representative office believes that the low demand for Geely Atlas is due to the fact that Russian customers are accustomed to perceive Chinese cars as substandard. That is, they consider the current price of Atlas as too high. It is interesting that, despite the current modest sales results, Geely Atlas still takes the place of the brand leader in the Russian market. It overtook the Emgrand X7, which was in the TOP-10 of the best selling Chinese models in Russia in the last year. Let's note, in January-May of 2018 sales of Geely cars fell by 10% in Russia as a whole.
