The Russian car market fell by 33% in January

For the first month of 2009 there were sold 116500 of new cars of Russian and foreign assembly (including light commercial cars) on the territory of Russia. This conclusion was made from the preliminary data of the Association of European Business by the newspaper Vedomosti. So, in comparison with January of the last year, the sales of cars reduced by 33% at the Russian market; in comparison with December 2008 by 44, 5%.
No car manufacturer managed to show positive dynamics at the falling market. The best result out of 10 leaders was showed by Honda, whose sales reduced only by 2%; Hyundai had the worst results (- 48%). The TOP 10 was significantly changed. The second place (after the brand AVTOVAZ) belonged to the brand Chevrolet. Ford moved from the 4th to the 2nd place. Hyundai made a return. Toyota and Nissan kept the 3rd and the 5th place. Renault moved from the 7th to the 11th place (3250), Mitsubishi from the 6th to the 16th place. Their places in the TOP of leaders were occupied by Kia and Mazda. The hits of sales are still Ford Focus and Chevrolet Lacetti. The sedan of business class Toyota Camry moved to the 3rd place from the 21st one. The sales of Lada fell by 38%; Renault Logan moved to the 7th place to the 3rd one. The sales of Hyundai Accent (manufactured at TagAZ) fell on over 80%.
In opinion of experts, the dealers hold their ground on account of sales of cars, imported last year. When this stock is over, the sales of foreign cars of average price will fall. Besides, as the analysts note, the demand was partly supported by buyers that came to the salons because of anxiety of growth of sales of cars.
