    According to the analytic agency "AUTOSTAT", for the first 9 months of 2018 the volume of import by legal entities of passenger cars (new and used) to Russia was 173.7 thousand units. Moreover, every third car arrived to us from Japan (57.2 thousand units), and every sixth one came from Germany (27.7 thousand units).



Preliminary totals of development of the automotive market of Russia in 2007

According to the preliminary assessment of the analytic agency AUTOSTAT, there were sold 2 mln 782 thsd passenger cars in 2007, its total cost was 53, 4 bln USD. Last year citizens of Russia bought 752 thsd domestic cars (the total cost 6, 16 bln USD) and 1, 65 mln new foreign cars (the total sum 40, 4 bln USD), as well as 380 thsd of second hand foreign cars (the total sum 6, 8 bln USD).
Thus, the russian automotive market grew on 35, 5% (counting in units) and on 57, 3 % (in USD) during the last year. The market share of russian models has reduced to 27%, the share of new foreign cars grew to 59%, and the share of second hand foreign cars remained practically the same as in 2006 14%. The leader of the market is the russian make LADA (its share is 24, 4%), and among foreign cars Chevrolet (market share 6,8%).
The main driving force of the russian market are the growing income of the population and the banking resources, namely the car loans. The lending money already constitute more than one third of the total capacity of the automotive market of Russia. As the analysts of AUTOSTAT esteem, in 2007 the banks invested nearly 20 bln USD (36 % of the market) in the purchase of automobiles.
In 2008 the Russian automotive market will go on growing, though its main rates can reduce to 20-25%. Nevertheless, these indexes are very good, especially on the background of stagnated markets of the European countries. Only Chinas rates of growth of sales of new cars are higher than the Russian ones.
We also note that, keeping all present tendencies, Russia can overtake Germany and become one of the largest European markets already in 2008-2009, not in 2010-2011 as the forecasts said.
