While new passenger car imports broke a record in Russia in September, used car imports broke a record. In this respect reports analytical agency “Avtostat”.
Thus, in the first autumn month, 80.8 thousand new passenger cars were delivered to Russia from abroad, this is the best result in the last three years. The previous record was broken in July with 80.3 thousand units. China accounts for 86.1% of the total new car supply to Russia.
At the same time, second-hand passenger car imports in September showed the lowest result of this year with 17.2 thousand units. This is three times less than in July (51.3 thousand units) and almost twice as low as in August (32 thousand units).
Experts attribute the decline in imports to the increase in recycling tax rates and the ban on the supply of cars, electric cars and hybrid cars with an engine capacity of more than 1.9 liters from Japan. Japan still imports the most second-hand cars; Its share in September reached 51.3%.
