“At the end of the year the market has no potential for growth”, - said General Director of “Auto-Dealer- SPb”, Mikhail Chaplygin. – “There are not proposed massive new or updated models for buyers. The program of preferential car loan did not give plus for market, it only reduced the dynamics of incidence, by supporting some models. All new items were already scheduled for 2014, so the dynamics of this year will not change”.

These indicators will permit to exceed the mark of 200,000 sold vehicles for the year, but market will not reach plus.
