The import of second-hand foreign cars continues growing

According to the data of the analytical agency AUTOSTAT for nine months of 2008 the import of second-hand passenger vehicles to Russia constituted 306,200 units. Totally the analysts forecast that this year the import of the second-hand may exceed 400,000 cars, up 10-12 percent from the previous year. Specialists say that the import structure has not changed greatly. As earlier the main stream of second-hand comes from the Far East, a large number of vehicles with right steering wheel is delivered there from Japan.
It is worth mentioning that according to the data of the marketing report Import of passenger cars to Russia in 2006-2007 last year about 370,000 second-hand foreign cars were imported to our country. The most popular among them is Toyota. Every fourth second-hand foreign car imported to Russia is Toyota (28.2%), almost every fifth - Nissan (18%). Then follows Honda (9%), Mazda (7.7%) and Mitsubishi (6.4%). Besides Suzuki and Subaru are imported from Japan which shares constitute about 2.3 percent per each brand. Totally share of the Japanese brands is about 75 percent from the total import volume of second-hand.
European second-hand models are not so popular among Russians. Sergey Tselikov, the director of the analytical agency AUTOSTAT says that there are only several brands of the European cars the import of which has more or less decent volumes (up to 10,000 units per year). They are Ford, Opel and Volkswagen. Except that there are Korean brands such as Hyundai and Daewoo and American ones - Dodge and Chrysler which are imported to Russia. Analysts say that there are expensive German brands brought to Russia such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi, but their second-hand volumes are rather small.
