The average age of cars in Russia is 12 years

In difference from many developed countries of the world, the automotive park of Russia is rather old. The average age of passenger cars in Europe constitutes about 8, 5 years, in USA 9, 2 years, our countrys index is at the level of 12 years. On account of sales of a big amount of new cars the Russian automotive park became a bit younger during the last years. At the end of 2007 the analysts established the average age of passenger cars in Russia: 12, 7 years. These data are given in the marketing report Structure and forecast of park of passenger cars in Russia, made by the analytic agency AUTOSTAT in January.
The analysts establish that more than a half (51%) of all cars, exploited on the territory of Russia, is older than 10 years. There are less than one third of those cars in Europe (32, 4%). A bit more than a quarter of the park (26%) accounts for the share of fresh cars (until 5 years) in Russia. In Europe this segment occupies almost 35% of the total car park.
Nevertheless, the growth of the market of foreign cars, seen during the last five years, allowed this segment of park to look more attractive than the segment of domestic cars. When analyzing the structure of park for the middle of 2008, the analysts establish that about 40% of park of foreign cars account for cars of the last five years. The share of foreign cars, older than 10 years, constitutes about 37% and the average age is even less than the European index about 7, 5 years.
The analysts also establish that the share of very old cars, which are practically not exploited any more (until 1980 models year) but are still registered in GIBDD RF, constitutes about 8%. The amount of these cars among foreign cars is only 1, 5%, among LADA cars about 10%, among other domestic cars nearly 20%.
