Scrappage program could be finished already today

The Ministry of industry and trade could finish the giving of scrappage certificates already today - it was left 1800 of scrappage certificates as of June 21st.
It should be reminded that the scrappage program of old cars was started on March 8th of 2010, wrote RBK daily. Every person, who wanted to buy a new car of Russian assembly, could scrap his old car, which is not younger than 10 years, and to receive the discount of 50 thousand Roubles for a new one. It was given 600 thousand of certificates during the scrappage program, for which was contributed 30 milliard Roubles by government. By the words of experts, interest in the program was not decreased and only accent in cities was changed. If earlier the leadership was occupied by Moscow, St. Petersburg, then the interest in program increased in the regions at the present time.
Analysts remarked that this program was and it also remained the locomotive for AUTOVAZ. AUTOVAZ sold 373,6 thousand cars (79% of all sales by scrappage program) within this program at the present time. On the opinion of experts, after the scrappage program is finished, it will be difficult time for AUTOVAZ, as about half of sales of AUTOVAZ belong to scrappage sales. But the representatives of press-centre of AUTOVAZ announced that minimum 25% of cars that are being sold by scrappage program would be commercial sales. So, the representatives of plant dont expect the sharp falling of demand for Lada cars at the end of scrappage program.
The second place in the scrappage sales is occupied by Renault: the share of French producer is 7,3% (34,6 thousand of sold cars). The representatives of company suppose that the scrappage program became for Renault a good addition to sales but the finishing of program wont lead to demand decreasing. Other producers have much less success: the significant shares belong to Skoda (5,3% of all scrappage sales) and Ford (2,3%).
On the opinion of dealers, the finishing of program wont lead to sales decreasing in the automotive market as there is no special boom of scrappage program and demand is growing due to the commercial sales. Experts suppose that only AUTOVAZ could face with sales falling. The foreign concerns, on the opposite side, will use the moment to press the Russian competitor.
