"Rolf" reduces the discount period on Mitsubishi

According to the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT" since the 10th of October "Rolf Import" company, the general distributor of Mitsubishi in Russia, announced about price reduction for the model line of this Japanese brand. However after a week period the term of validity of this discount was reduced till the 31st of October but earlier it proceeded till the 31st of December.
According to the newspaper "Vedomosti", Dmitriy Rotkin, the managing director of "Rolf Import", explains such decision in this way - the sharp sales increase began. The number of contracts for car purchase grew 70% up after a week of the discount validity. Vardan Dashtoyan, the CEO of retail sales of "Rolf" adds that 668 cars were contracted during five days of the action but only 395 ones during the week before the action. Managers of other Mitsubishi dealers - GALF and "Redegi" - confirmed that the number of visitors of the outlets has significantly grown after the announcement about the action. "But there are not so many contracts compared to the "pre-discount period", they complain. At the same time analysts consider that "Rolf" reduced the discount period at the request of auto market participants in order to avoid price wars.
Experts remark that "Rolf" decided to make discounts because of sales decrease of Mitsubishi for some last months. In August sales declined 19 percent compared to the same period in 2007 and in September sales fell 25 percent down.
