AVTOVAZ reduces trade stock

According to the official data published in the AVTOVAZ, report for the third quarter of 2008 the stock of unrealized LADA cars constituted 96,000 units at the beginning of October. The enterprise understands that there is a problem. Nevertheless the management considers that this level, one and half exceeding the norm, is not critical for the plant.
Moreover the situation is changing for the better. In October sales grew 16 percent up to 56,700 cars on the local market compared to September. Besides in October the plant exported 9,700 units to the overseas market. Totally for 10 months AVTOVAZ? export sales rose 10.4 percent to 96,200 units.
According to the up-to-date data the realization of LADA cars in November is also outpacing. Besides since the 10th of November the shipment of LADA-2107 within the government order of the Ministry of Public Health and Social Development of Russian Federation has started. The plant has to deliver 17,300 LADA 2107 cars to veterans and physically challenged within the terms of the order by the end of the year. Sergey Tselikov, the director of the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT" considers that besides this government order the situation is changing for the better at AVTOVAZ due to the increased demand for the rather affordable plant?s products. Nowadays the financial crisis is influencing the customer demand mainly through the credit instruments. Reduction of the auto crediting volumes reflects in the first turn on the expensive market segments. Meanwhile the demand for the rather low-cost cars has begun to grow.
During the last month the analysts remark the increased demand for the "classic" family, LADA Samara hatchbacks and LADA 4×4 SUVs. In some regions there has already been lack of these cars and correspondingly dealers have begun to raise prices. Only during last two weeks the minimum retail price for LADA 2107 models has risen 3,000-4,000 rubles and popular LADA-2114 hatchback has become 2,000-3,00- rubles more expensive. There is also an increased demand for wagons LADA Kalina and LADA 111. Moreover the analysts notice good start of sales of the LADA Priora?s "top" version, the so-called "super-lux" version, which dealers have begun to receive only since the second half of November.
According to the estimation of the analytical agency "AUTOSTAT" at year-end AVTOVAZ will be able to keep sales at the level of last year but taking into account export the realization figures will be 2-4 percent higher than in 2007. The analysts calculated that if there are the current market trends then AVTOVAZ? trade stock can decrease to 80,000-90,000 units by the end of the year and in the context of price growth the sales proceeds will exceed 12-14 percent the level of last year.
