Dealers complained that foreign cars in warehouses and showrooms are only enough for a month of sales

And this despite the fact that almost no one buys cars at current prices (and with the current assortment).

Association “Russian Automobile Dealers” complainsthat there are no more than 20-30 thousand new cars of foreign brands left in the whole country, including in warehouses. This amount is not enough for a month of sales.

“Warehouses of auto centers are seriously depleted, there are very few cars left – about five copies of certain brands, about ten. The average car center used to sell about 30 cars a month. It turns out that these reserves cannot even provide monthly sales, ”Izvestia quotes the words of the vice president of the association, Alexei Podshchekoldin.

The deficit, according to experts, is more than 1 million cars. The warehouses are almost empty of the most popular and familiar brands for Russians – Kia, Hyundai, Toyota, Renault and Volkswagen.

There are several reasons. Firstly, it is unprofitable for dealers to continue to import cars now – due to difficulties with logistics and high duties, the price of a cheap car immediately rises by 10%. And no one is willing to pay. Secondly, it turns out that cars from dealerships in Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus are “reluctantly delivered to Russia”, although there were hopes for the opposite. And it is clear that foreign cars cannot be replaced by any “Ladas” and “Moskvichs”.
