How have dealer networks in Russia changed for 10 years?


The number of Chinese dealers may increase 1.5 times


According to the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT", as of April 1, 2022, there were 733 official car dealers of Chinese brands in Russia. True, not all of them are actively involved in their activities. Scanty sales volumes and, in fact, only a formal presence in such brands as Lifan (18 dealers), Brilliance (23 dealers), GAC (18 dealers), Zotye (5 dealers).

At the same time, the most massive Chinese brand in terms of the size of the dealer network is Chery, which has 142 dealers. In addition, at the beginning of April, 50 companies received dealerships of the premium sub-brand Exeed. In second place among the "Chinese" in terms of the number of dealers there is Haval, which has 117 dealer cents in the country. On the third - Geely (99 dealers). There are also 86 Changan dealers, 77 FAW dealers, 55 JAC dealers, and 43 DongFeng dealers in Russia.

Taking into account the freezing of production and deliveries of cars, as well as the potential exit from the Russian market of a number of European, American and Asian brands, in recent months, many of the dealer holdings "rushed" to get dealerships of Chinese brands. According to the director of the agency "AUTOSTAT" Sergey Tselikov, "if the current trend continues, then by the end of the year the number of dealers of Chinese brands may grow to 1000." But is there enough cars?

According to the expert, the management of many dealer groups are actively obtaining "Chinese dealership" out of desperation. It makes no economic sense to keep empty salons; they need to be filled with something. The arrival of new cars, albeit in minimal quantities, is now only from Chinese and domestic brands. But despite the explosive growth in the market share, in absolute terms, sales of Chinese cars are falling. Therefore, it is unlikely that dealers will be able to make money on sales and maintenance of these cars in the near future. For many "new" dealers, at best, this will turn out to be an "investment in the distant future", at worst - a "losing investment", the expert concludes.
