Russian Vehicle Market Mazda-CX-5

Russian Vehicle Market fell 19% in August hit by the economy shrank. All the top carmakers have reported heavy loses but Lexus that was able to grow 57% keeping the unique momentum with annual sales up 14%.

Economic Outlook

Russia’s economy likely took the sharpest plunge in six years in the second quarter. The economy shrank 4.6% annually, according to preliminary data, which followed a 2.2% contraction in the first quarter. Although a breakdown by expenditure or sectors is not available yet, high frequency data suggest a broad-based weakness across key sectors of the economy.

That said, the government believes that Russia reached the lowest point of its recession in Q2 and that the pace of contraction will start to moderate in the coming months.

Moreover, the intensity of the contraction in industrial production eased at the end of Q2 and the pace of decrease moderated further in July.

On 24 August, the Russian ruble fell below 70 RUB per USD as a result of declining oil prices and fears the impact of turbulence in China’s financial market could have. The renewed challenging economic climate weighed on business activity in the Russian manufacturing and services sectors in August.
