“In fact, there are several tens of thousands of new cars left throughout the country.” New foreign cars in Russia left for a month of sales

As Izvestia writes, citing a representative of the Association of Russian Automobile Dealers and experts, the number of foreign cars in the warehouses of Russian dealers has decreased to 20-30 thousand. At the current rate of sales, this entire stock can be bought up in a month.

The warehouses of auto centers have become seriously depleted, there are very few cars left: somewhere around five copies of certain brands, somewhere around ten. The average car center used to sell about 30 cars a month. It turns out that these stocks cannot even provide monthly sales.“, – said the vice-president of the Association of Russian Automobile Dealers (ROAD) Alexei Podshchekoldin.

In fact, there are several tens of thousands of new cars left throughout the country. If you take the brands separately, then each dealer will get less than a thousand. In 2023, most centers may be left with empty warehouses”, he added.

Maxim Kadakov, an auto expert and editor-in-chief of the Za Rulem magazine, agrees with him. “According to my calculations, there are 20-30 thousand cars left throughout the country, in all car dealerships“, – he said.

According to Aleksey Podshchekoldin, Kia, Hyundai, Renault, Volkswagen and Toyota cars are in particular shortage, and parallel imports cannot improve the situation, since its volumes are too small and cannot cover demand.

Parallel import has not yet worked as we would like. Units get through it. The process of registration of such cars is extremely difficult. A huge number of documents and certificates are required, and customs has a lot of questions”, added Jan Heitzeher, vice president of the National Automobile Union (NAU).

Dealers themselves try not to advertise the problem of the current shortage, but it exists and will probably get worse. Experts believe that the shortage of new cars next year could reach 1 million units.
