Automakers are launching their own recycling programs in anticipation of government regulations

The state scrappage program, which must be resumed in Russia on September 1st, still does not work – it was not approved the relevant government decree. Therefore, a number of automakers, without waiting for the state, have launched their own recycling programs. Among them, AvtoVAZ, KAMAZ, GAZ, "Sollers”, PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford Sollers, wrote the newspaper "Vedomosti". Conditions of their programs are generally similar to those that were announced in August by the Minister of Industry, Denis Manturov: for the delivery of the car to the scrap in September - December of 2014, you can get a discount on the purchase of new cars from 50 thousand rubles (passenger cars) up to 350 thousand rubles (trucks and buses). When you use trade-in, which is to be included this time in the state program of utilization, a discount is less by 10-50 thousand rubles. There are slight differences in timing (eg, AvtoVAZ program operates from September 4 to December 15, in KAMAZ - from September 8th to December 31st) and the size of the discount (at Ford Sollers it is the same as for utilization, so for trade-in, the program operates until September 30th, and it deals with two models). 

Sources, close to the car manufacturers, are saying that they launched the program in the hope that later the state will compensate the granted discounts. "Of course, there are risks - for example, that the state will not compensate. But given the increasing incidence of car sales, these risks are justified, "- said one of the interlocutors of “Vedomosti". Representatives of Toyota, GM and JV "GM - AvtoVAZ" reported that their companies will wait for the document, which is regulating the state program of recycling. 

Given the fall in the market - car sales in January-August fell by 12% compared to the same period of the last year – auto concerns now in any case need to run a broad discount campaign. Scrappage program – is a good episode for this, says the CEO of portal Auto-dealer.ru, Oleg Datskiv. Therefore, even if the state does not compensate them for all the discounts, automakers have nothing to lose, he thinks. State may exploit the break with the approval mechanism for the analysis of the real impact from recycling programs on automakers, so that later, for example, to adjust the parameters of the state program, said Mr.Datskiv. 

In recent years, the government has paid the increasing attention to the auto industry, and there is no doubt that the announced parameters of the state program of recycling of cars by Ministry of Industry will be met, says the analyst of "VTB Capital", Vladimir Bespalov. The more that 10 billion Rubles, which is going to be spent for this purpose by the ministry, can be find by the government, the expert adds. Mr.Bespalov considers the launch of their own recycling programs as justified: "Claimed period of the state program validity – is only four months, and companies need to use by maximum this opportunity." Waiting of a number of automakers is likely connected with the internal corporate procedures, he thinks.
