Russia July. Sales +18% fueled by recovery in economic activity

Russian Auto Sales 2017 Kia-Niro-2017

Russian Auto Sales up 18% in June, the fifth increase in a row, giving continuity at the recovery pathway. New vehicles demand is sustained by a recovery in the economic activity albeit risks are still in place, as EU has renovated the economic sanctions.

Russian economy’s recovery likely kicked into a higher gear in the second quarter and growth is seen coming in at the highest reading since Q4 2013. Data remained bright despite oil prices having fallen throughout the period. In May, exports soared by nearly 30% and unemployment edged down in June. Moreover, consumer confidence stood at the highest level in nearly three years in Q2, aided by the improving economic situation.There are, however, considerable risks that could threaten the economic recovery: on 28 June, the European Union extended its economic sanctions on Russia to 31 January 2018.

The automotive industry has collapsed in the last three years losing over the half of the 2013 volume, but it seems that in the first quarter 2017 domestic market bottomed out and now a recovery is in place.

Indeed, according with data released by the AEB, in the first half of the year, light vehicles sales had been 718.018, up 6.8%, with a positive string started in March.

In July sales have been 129.685, up 18.5%, the best increase in 5 years, with year to date figures at 847.703 units, up 8.5%.

In this period of time, the market leader, the domestic Lada (Autovaz), sold 166.763 vehicles (+14.1%) with 19.7% of market share.

In second place Kia gained 24.2% with 101.376 sales while in third Hyundai sold 82.602 vehicles (+9.9%).

Behind, Renault with 71.820 units (+17.4%), Toyota with 51.881 (+1.0%), Volkswagen with 50.626 (+19.0%) and Nissan with 40.925 (-0.4%).

At model wise, the leader is Korean, the Kia Rio, with 54614 sales (+16.0%) overtaking the Lada Granta (50.130 sales, -6.4%) and the Lada Vesta (41.086, +46.3%).
