Russian new vehicles sales down a record 43% in November. Lada presents the new Vesta.

Russian new vehicles sales down a record 42.7% in November albeit the launch of the new domestic model, the Lada Vesta. Economic data of the Q3 had been below the expectations with recession at 4.3%. The end of the fall is far.

Economic Outlook

The economic recession in Russia hit rock bottom in mid-2015. A preliminary estimate shows that GDP decreased 4.1% in Q3 over the same quarter last year, which is up from the 4.6% contraction observed in Q2 when the economy experienced the worst contraction in six years.

Lower oil prices, a decline in real wages, the weakening of the ruble and the impact from external economic factors continued to weigh on the Russian economy in Q3.

However, initial signs of stabilization are coming from the industrial sector, while performance in the agricultural sector is also looking better. On 22 November, the Crimean Peninsula was left in the dark when individuals suspected of belonging to the Right Sector (a Ukrainian nationalist militia) blew up power pylons in the Kherson region of Ukraine that supply energy to Crimea.

The outage has raised tensions with Russia, though it is not likely to take a combative approach to Ukraine at the moment as Moscow is looking to build an international coalition against the Islamic State in Syria. Moreover, the blackout in Crimea has been overshadowed by Turkey shooting down a Russian military aircraft due to allegations that Russia has repeatedly violated Turkish airspace. The incident is likely to have serious implications for Moscow’s relations with Ankara.
