TOP-10 of the best-selling new cars in Russia
  • 25.01.19 TOP-10 of the best-selling new cars in Russia

    The experts of the analytic agency "AUTOSTAT" made a rating of the best-selling new cars in Russia in 2018. The leader of this rating was KIA Rio, which at the same time ranked the third in the list of the most popular models in the market as a whole.



Which van is more profitable to own?


Experts of the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT" conducted a survey* of the cost of owning a light commercial vehicle. It was conducted using the Ownership Assessment Calculator. The following all-metal vans equipped with a diesel engine and a manual transmission were selected as objects of survey: "GAZelle NEXT" (engine capacity - 2.8 liters; power - 150 hp; drive - rear) in the A31R22-80 modification and Ford Transit (2.2 l; 125 HP; front) in the VAN 350L2H2 and VAN 350L3H2 modifications. The region of operation is the Moscow region.

In the process of researching the cost of ownership, the costs of maintaining vehicles were calculated for 3 years, provided that they have driven 120 thousand km during this time. The parameters for the calculation were the recommended retail prices of cars, their residual value, insurance costs (CASCO + OSAGO) and regulated maintenance from authorized dealers, fuel costs and the purchase of tires, as well as transport tax.

According to the survey results, the best result in terms of the total cost of ownership is demonstrated by GAZelle NEXT. For 3 years of operation, it will be about 1.38 million rubles. This is less than that of both "transits", the indicator of which is at the level of 1.45 million rubles. In addition to the fact that the GAZelle NEXT van has a more attractive price (500 - 550 thousand rubles lower than its competitors), this model is also characterized by low operating costs, which for 3 years or 120 thousand km will be 1.02 million rubles. But the owner of Ford Transit will spend 1.07 - 1.08 million rubles during this time (or the same mileage).

If we consider the costs of maintaining light commercial vans for one month, then for the domestic model they will be 38,255 rubles, while for the "Transit" they will be in the range of 40,200 - 40,400 rubles. Accordingly, 1 km of run for "GAZelle Next" will cost a little more than 11 rubles, and for Ford models - more than 12 rubles. * The survey was conducted in August of 2021.
