In crisis AVTOVAZ is increasing its market share

According to the estimation of the analytical agency AUTOSTAT the market share of Lada brand in October grew up to 25 percent versus 21.5-21.7 percent in August-September. Sergey Tselikov, the director of the analytical agency AUTOSTAT, considers that the strengthening of AVTOVAZ positions on the local market happens due to shift of demand to the segment of low-cost cars.
In his opinion nowadays several factors contribute to keeping and some increase of sales of AVTOVAZ products. The first one is the instability of currency rates. Analysts have remarked not once that if the dollar rate grows sharply the demand for AVTOVAZ products increases significantly also. The same thing happened in the second half of October. Moreover the reduction of auto credit volumes leads to impossibility for some customers to buy more expensive cars and they have to choose AVTOVAZ products which service and repair in its turn is also less expensive.
In October AVTOVAZ sold 56,700 cars versus 49,000 the month earlier. The total sales volume of foreign cars last month reduced 5 percent - from 178,000 units in September to 169,000 units in October.
