It is expected the deficit of powerful cars in the secondary market

The decreasing of transport tax base will lead to the demand growth for the powerful engines cars and, consequently, there will be a deficit in the secondary market. This forecast was made by the specialists of company AUTOprobeg and they supposed that the category of cars with 200HP and more engines will be in the highest demand.
The increasing of transport tax in 2009 year has led to the decreasing of demand for new cars with powerful engines. As there were sold a few of such cars then it could be expected the sharp demand growth for powerful cars after the transport tax rate decreasing. And it will happen at once, as soon as the law will go into effect, experts supposed. As the offer in this segment is limited and the cars of 2008-2009 years of manufacturing will be in the greatest demand then it could be expected a speculative price increasing of such cars in March 2011 year.
It is known that many potential customers were stopped by the transport tax high rate. And they could realize their old wishes in a new year and buy a powerful car, said the CEO of AUTOprobeg company, Sergey Tkachev. According to his opinion, winter-2011 is the best time for this purchase due to the low demand and the same level prices as the market wont have time to react on the situation changing.
It should be recalled that Russian state Duma adopted in the first reading a new law in a draft about transport tax that will be decreased twice. Therewith, the legislative (representative) authorities of regions in Russia will get the right to set reduced transport tax bases till the zero rates for the passenger cars of engine power before 150HP, inclusively.
