According to the automobile manufacturers Committee of the AEB (Association of European Business) sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles (GVW up to 6 metric tons, in some cases) in Russia in October 2019 fell by 5.2% (to 8368 units) relative to the same month in 2018, amounting to 152 057 units.
For 10 months of 2019 new car sales dipped by 2.4% to 1 423 449 units.
Chairman of the AEB automobile manufacturers Committee Joerg Schreiber commented October: "Sales in October was below last year's 5.2%, which consolidated the market in the way of a slow but continuous erosion so needed now as the sales growth achieved in 2017-2018. of Course, this is not the direction that I want to see in the industry, but it is difficult to tell where may come changes for the better in the near future."
Characteristically, the leading brand LADA dipped to 5.5% in October (market share decreased only 0.1% to 19.9%) and by 1% since the beginning of the year (a share of 20.8% compared to 20% last year), i.e. almost in line with the market, and underscores the importance for him of public support programmes. The biggest – a 20% growth in Top 10 brands in October showed "GAS commercial vehicles" to 6530 units In 10 months the best growth was in the BMW with +16% to 33 936 units, while in October, she flew out of the Top 10. But it returned in October UAZ with 3924 units (-3%), clearly not yet, thanks to the Patriot with automatic transmission.
The worst performance in the October Top 10 at Volkswagen from -7% to 9253 units, and 10 months – Toyota from -5% to 82 281 units. (not so much because of the decline Camry, but with the change of generations of the RAV4, which is being launched at the St. Petersburg plant).
In the Top 30 for October and year-biggest growth Haval 4.2% to 1514 units and 3.9 times to 8538 units, respectively. In contrast, the largest decline in Nissan by 60% to 2832 units, like brand, is leaving the Russian market, and for 10 months from... Chevrolet (-24% to 18 271 units), which would be our market is gone, but left with virtually the sole model Niva, which of the Top 25 since the beginning of the year fell, but returned to him on the 22-th place in October 1920 units.
By the way, despite a high-profile PR campaign Ravon return the Russian market (with plans to sell before the end of this year from 7000 to 8000 machine!), its registrations for the October, the AEB is not marked.
Traditionally that all 25 models, leading in the ranking of sales of new passenger cars carry Russian VIN. The leaders of the Top 25 Oct walks LADA Granta with 11 712 units (+14,1%) and in 10 months from 108 686 units (+35.1 per cent). So this model became the main beneficiary of state subsidies. Behind her on second place came (possible back – ed.) KIA Rio with 8724 units (+10.4 percent), but for 10 months it is only third with 78 073 units (-5,9%), behind LADA Vesta 91 798 (+5,7%), which greatly subsided in October – by 22.2% to 8296 units Solid 4th place keeps crossover Hyundai Creta with 6806 units (+16.2 percent) in October and 58 775 units (+5.8 per cent) for 10 months. The top 5 closes in October, the VW Polo 4702 units (-12%) and in 10 months – Hyundai Solaris with 49 829 units (-10,6%). 

PS i.e. dear Mr. Schreiber said that everything is bad, but it will be even worse and the light at the end of the tunnel is not visible yet. However, with the decrease, sometimes very long, always comes rise, another issue is that the current Russian car market is very firmly seated on the state subsidies that support primarily the segment of budget models (passenger and LCV), but in this case, the market structure is depleted, although it is possible to say that: not to fat – be alive. In principle, the volume of sales on the Russian market is clearly correlated with the cost of a barrel of oil – so what will oil, so will the market. If you are already in the medium run, the real volume of consumption of oil and natural gas because of the success of alternative energy and the growth of the fleet of electric cars will push the price of a barrel from the top down, and the domestic car market no subsidies (which also means I will not) will not save him, although a certain hard low sales (about a half of against the current) will be saved, even at the expense of public procurement. If the economy is "change of notation" with fuel exports at least for agricultural, sooner or later sales will go up because the total level of car ownership in Russia is objectively much lower than that of developed countries. So that the growth of the fleet will still go, just at a slower pace..
