There are over 700 thsd trucks in Russia

The quantity of foreign cars in the russian automotive park is constantly growing every year. This concerns not only passenger cars, but also trucks. We can often see heavy trucks of big seven on our roads, as well as a lot of other unknown makes. At the beginning of summer 2008 the analytic agency AUTOSTAT researched the structure of park of trucks of foreign production.
The analysts establish that for the beginning of 2008 the russian park numbered over 700 thsd of commercial cars of foreign production, including over 360 thsd trucks of foreign production, registered in GIBDD by category C (the allowed mass over 3, 5 tons), as well as nearly 350 thsd of foreign cars by the category B, which could be referred to the segment of light commercial vehicles (LCV). These are different models of Volkswagen, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Ford, Renault, Hyundai and others.
In general, the park of foreign commercial technics is rather old. In spite of active import of foreign makes during the last several years, the age of each second truck still exceeds 10 years (50%) in Russia, as the analysts say. The reason of this situation is mainly a big volume of import of second hand cars, which is caused by a high competitiveness of this technics by ratio price/quality. A bit more than one third of the automotive park (34%) are trucks at the age of 4 10 years (1997 - 2004). And only 14% account for fresh technics, produced since 2004 until now. You can find detailed information in the report Park of foreign cars in Russia. Trucks.
