This is the seventeenth edition of our annual reference book «Automotive market in Russia», covering results of 2018. It contains statistics and analytics on production, sales and vehicle parc in our country.

In 2018 commercial vehicle market (light commercial vehicles, trucks and buses) in Russia came up to 207,000 vehicles, that is 3% more than a year ago.

As for sales of new passenger cars in Russia, their volume has increased by 13.3% up to 1.7 million units. The sales growth of passenger cars caused production growth and impact on the general data of the Russian automotive industry. There were 1.77 million units of vehicles produced in Russian Federation in 2018, which is 13.9% more than in previous year.

According to the analysis of the key macroeconomic indexes, we can state that the Russian economy continued its steady recovery in 2018. The recovery processes in the economy created favorable conditions for the development of the passenger car market.

In this year expects slowdown in the Russian economic development due to some internal and external factors such as increase in VAT and excise taxes, low level of world oil prices, prolongation of economic sanctions, etc. So, there is high possibility that the economic slowdown will affect the automotive market negatively so we should not expect market growth in 2019.

As before, AUTOSTAT specialists tried to offer you the most complete and qualitative Information. Besides the main segments of the automotive parc in Russia (passenger cars, LCV, trucks and buses) the report also contains data by production years in the brand structure as well. In 2018, automotive parc in Russia increased by 2.4% or 1.2 million vehicles up to 51.8 million vehicles. The lion’s share (84%) of the parc is generated by passenger cars (43.5 million vehicles). During the year their number increased by 2.7%. Light commercial vehicles form 7.9% of the total parc or 4.1 million vehicles. Last year LCV parc increased by almost 1.4%. Trucks generate 7.3% of the parc. There are 3.8 million trucks, during the year their number grew by 0.7%. The remaining part of the parc (less than 1%) belongs to buses, that is about 405,700 vehicles in terms of numbers.

We should mention that reference book “Automotive market in Russia – 2019” was prepared using RADAR (Russian Automotive Data Analytics & Research) online system for analyzing of regional automotive data, developed by AUTOSTAT agency.
