Demand for cars from car dealers in Kazakhstan among Russians living in border towns plunged into a pandemic again: solvent citizens of the Russian Federation took top equipment from Kazakh dealers that the locals did not take. But now, in the era of sanctions, Russians are taking everything in Kazakhstan in general, Rossiyskaya Gazeta writes, citing Nur. In addition, we are talking about both private transactions and the purchase of cars by entire car carriers.
The SaryarkaAvtoProm plant produces Kia, Chevrolet, Renault and JAC.
According to the source, the number of people looking to buy locally assembled cars has increased tenfold in the past month. We are talking about cars produced at the SaryarkaAvtoProm plant. By the way, JAC models assembled at this plant are officially delivered to the Russian Federation, and until recently they were cheaper here than in Kazakhstan.
However, now it is more profitable for residents of Chelyabinsk, Yekaterinburg, Ufa, Tyumen or Kurgan to go to Kostanay to pick up a car. Experts believe that in the short term this whole situation will benefit both Russian buyers and Kazakhstan’s auto industry. But in the future, higher costs will inevitably lead to price increases.
