According to the agency “Auto-Dealer- SPb”, in 2013 the largest Avto holding of St. Petersburg by sales of new foreign passenger cars became Group “Rolf”. At first, one holding has the share more than 10% of all sales of new foreign cars in the city, and the advantage of the leader to the second place was more than twice what also was not before. “Rolf” increased sales of cars by 33% in compare with 2012.

There was one change in the three leading automotive holding of St. Petersburg: the second place (after the 5th in 2012) was occupied by the Group “Laura”, by showing an increase in sales of 12%. The third place, despite the negative growth (-13 %), was again belonged to the “Mega Auto”.

“Sales were increased by those holdings brands, first of all, which have filled their portfolios with new brands”, - says the CEO of “Auto-Dealer- SPb”, Mikhail Chaplygin. – “In addition, the impact on the strengthening of the position of dealers was made by popular foreign cars in St. Petersburg at the end of the last year, which showed a positive trend in sales. Companies that continue to rely on traditional brands reduced sales volumes”.

“Rolf” keeps its leadership through multi-brand portfolio, which is represented by the foreign cars, which are showing an increase in sales in St. Petersburg for the last year - it's Renault and Ford. In addition, the dealer was able to increase significantly sales of Mitsubishi, Hyundai (it was added in portfolio of holding in 2012), Land Rover and Jaguar. Also, due to brands that showed a positive trend, GC “Laura” received the second place – it is the same Renault, Opel and SsangYong.

The greatest increase in sales, in addition to the Group “Rolf”, was shown by “Alarm Motors” (32%) for the last year, as well as newcomers of Top 20: Automobile holding “Maximum” (40 %) and “Avtopole” (26%). Center “Avtopole”, which is developing the first city format of car village, was rated due to the appearance in the portfolio of two new brands for the last year - Suzuki and SsangYong, as well as increased sales of Ford. Holding “Maximum” boosted sales of all three of its brands (Ford, Honda and Mitsubishi), besides they all showed a positive trend for the year in the whole city.

The most significant drop in the sales of foreign cars is at Avto holding “RRT” - 59%. Dealer moved from 2nd to 13th place just for one year. GC “Autoworld” and the company “Sigma Motors” have left the Top-20. At the same time, sales of “Autoworld” remained almost at the same level of the last year, when the figures of “Sigma Motors” decreased mainly due to the double sales fall of Volkswagen.

The greatest breakthrough in the ranking was achieved by holding “Alarm Motors”, which rose from 10th place in 2012 to 4th place in the last year. The holding has about 40 % of total sales of Ford in St. Petersburg (it is in the top 5 of the most popular cars in the city). The opening of dealership Peugeot in May, a significant increase in sales of SsangYong and Kia influenced on the positive result of “Alarm Motors”.

“ In 2014, the positive results may be shown by dealers, who will sell the updated models of some brands, in particular, Skoda and Nissan”, - says Mikhail Chaplygin. – “Separate bonus will be received by holdings that catch in their portfolio Datsun car. In general, the first twenty dealers keep their overall market share.
