Only 4, 4% of the automotive market in Russia account for the share of diesel cars

According to data of the research, made by the analytic agency AUTOSTAT, 95, 9% of passenger cars, realized in 2008 on the territory of Russia, use petrol fuel. On totals of the year, only 4, 4% of the Russian automotive market accounted foe the share of diesel engines. The majority in this category are big SUVs. The deputy director of AUTOSTAT Sergej Udalov notes that cars with a hybrid engine are rare at the Russian market. Last year their share constituted 0, 1% of the market. The sales of passenger cars with gas system, originally equipped, are also unique. The analysts note that over a half (53%) of new passenger cars have a diesel engine in Europe. During the last year this share increased by 2%. The most advanced countries in this direction are: Spain, France, Norway and Belgium, where over 70% of sold cars are equipped with diesel engines.
Little popularity of diesel among the Russian consumers is explained by analysts of the agency AUTOSTAT in the following way: during a long time there was no qualitative fuel at the Russian petrol stations. Domestic car manufacturers practically did not output passenger cars with diesel engines. Nowadays there is diesel fuel of good quality, but it is only accessible mainly in big cities and the price on it is often higher than the price of qualitative petrol. The specialists say that from the ecological point of view diesel engine is more preferable to a petrol one, because it creates less emission. Besides, fuel consumption of modern diesel power units is by 25 30% less than of petrol engines, with similar characteristics by volume and power.
