Segmentation of the Russian market: new and used cars
  • 28.09.18 Segmentation of the Russian market: new and used cars

    The analytic agency "AUTOSTAT" conducted a survey of the primary and secondary markets in Russia for the first 8 months of 2018. So, the volume of the market of new cars for the reporing period was 1.02 million units, second-hand - 3.5 million units.



Since the New Year Lada will get up 2-3 percent

While the main foreign carmakers announce about discount actions AVTOVAZ will increase prices 2-3 percent for the whole model line Lada since the New Year. Dealers and the plants manager told the newspaper Vedomosti about this fact.
However AVTOVAZ does not expect the drop in demand because of the price increase, such risky decision is backed up by the market conditions. According to the AEBs data in October the sales of foreign cars in Russia declined 5.7 percent to 169,115 units compared to September and the whole market of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles decreased 8 percent to 230,000 units. However Ladas sales in October grew up 16 percent or 7,800 units to 56,700 cars compared to the previous month. Thus, the analysts of AUTOSTAT calculated that against the whole market slowdown Ladas share on the car market increased more than 3 percent and constituted 25 percent. Besides the growth of the dollar rate is to the advantage of the price increase as foreign car prices are tied to this rate as well as the implementation of 30-percent duties for second-hand cars which will come to force since the 1st of January 2009.
But AVTOVAZ top-models Kalina and Priora are in the same price segment like such foreign cars as Renault Logan, Chevrolet Lanos and Daewoo Nexia. So the rivals are planning to take advantage of Ladas price increase. For example, the company Ukravto which produces Chevrolet Lanos is negotiating with Russian dealers about the price changes for Lanos for Russia.
By the way the experience of the price increase for foreign cars in crisis conditions turned out to be unfortunate. Thus, Hyundais sales produced at TagAZ fell 40 percent compared to August after the model had become 30,000 rubles more expensive in October. Most dealers such as Mitsubishi, Citroen and Chrysler offer discount actions.
