Alfa Romeo leaves the Russian market

The Italian Fiat Group and the largest Russian auto holding Major have not prolonged the contract for supplies of a well-known Alfa Romeo to Russia in 2010. Exclusive cooperation with the dealer has not helped Italians to perform the sales plan: from 2006 to 2009 they realized here only 1287 cars though annual sale should exceed 2 thousand Alfa cars. Last year only 104 Alfa Romeo cars were sold in the Russian market whereas world sales of this brand grew by 8% and constituted 111 thousand cars.
The newspaper "Kommersant" writes that in Major they explained the termination of cooperation with Fiat by uncertain situation with the manufacturer because of Chrysler purchase (in June, 2009 Fiat got 20% of the bankrupt American auto company Chrysler for 2 billion dollars). According to the source close to Major, the manufacturer at the end of 2009 was not in the best financial situation because of the transaction with Chrysler and broke a number of conditions of work with the distributor, in particular detained payment for warranty service. The initiator of the termination of cooperation was Major, the source confirms.
