They fill the gap left by the departure of Western automakers. and Russians must overcome their mistrust of Chinese brands and put up with their high prices.

However, in private conversations, buyers admit that they still consider the quality of Chinese cars to be lower than Western competitors.

Stepan, 28, uses car sharing services and increasingly drives Chinese cars. His main complaint is the lack of smoothness of Chinese cars. He himself previously owned a Skoda and says that the difference is palpable.

Vice President of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev believes that consumer opinion is outdated. He drove a premium car in China and says the car he drove was “certainly as good as a Mercedes”.

A representative of one of the dealers in Vladivostok noted that the problem is that the Russians have long focused on European, Japanese and American brands and do not really take into account the Chinese market, which is developing at an incredible speed. .

Chinese cars are increasingly filling a niche that has been vacant since the departure of Western companies, but the lack of reputation remains a problem for them. Reputation needs to be strengthened even if there is no alternative to it, industry experts say.
