Ministry of Industry and Trade allowed parallel import of 50 brands of cars


The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia has published a list of goods for parallel imports that can be imported into the country without the permission of the copyright holder. Many car brands also got into the document, including Land Rover, Jaguar, Bentley, Hummer, Tesla, Mercedes-Benz, Maybach, Lexus, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, Maserati, Bugatti. Also, without the permission of the copyright holder, it is possible to import cars and spare parts of Toyota, Volkswagen, Skoda, BMW, Renault, Audi, MINI and Nissan brands into Russia.

Recall that in March and April, many manufacturers announced a temporary cessation of deliveries of cars to Russia, as well as a halt in the production of their products in the country. This includes Volkswagen, Skoda, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. In addition, in mid-March, the European Union imposed an embargo on the supply of luxury goods to Russia. The sanctions list also includes cars worth 50,000 Euros or more. Similar bans apply to the import of cars from the United States, as well as from Japan, which has already spurred the demand for the "gray" import of Toyota SUVs from the UAE.

Thus, the import of most foreign cars is possible only through parallel imports for a while. However, experts warn that problems may arise with this: "gray" dealers may fall under secondary sanctions from Western countries. The issue with the supply of spare parts is also not resolved yet. It is still unclear when legalized parallel import deliveries will start. According to experts' forecasts, after signing the order, the process of establishing imports may take more than six months.
