Every fifth foreign car in Russia has a right steering wheel

During the last year the number of foreign cars with right steering wheel grew on 308 thsd units and now constitutes 2, 2 mln units in Russia. This statistics is provided by GIBDD, got by the agency AUTOSTAT. The analysts say that in fact every fifth foreign car (20, 3%) has the right steering wheel in Russia.
The analysts note that the distribution of such cars is not regular on the territory of Russia. The share of foreign cars is the highest one at the Far East 84%. This index is a bit less in Siberia at the level of 65%. The share in Ural district, where there is boundary between east and west, is at the level of average Russian index 19, 5%. If we move to the west, the number of cars with right steering wheel is less. In total, the share of cars with steering wheel in the North Western part of our country does not exceed 1% from the total number of foreign cars.
The analysts of AUTOSTAT note that in connection with introduction of new prohibitive duties on import of second hand cars since the 11th January 2009, the increase of park of cars with right steering wheel will significantly slow down in Russia or may be stop at all. The import of new, more fresh second hand cars from Japan will compensate the rejection of old cars.
