The experts of the agency “Autostat” continued an interesting topic, started last week… Only this time we are talking about the regions of Russia, where the most popular are cars with a manual gearbox.
The maximum share of sales of cars with a manual gearbox was noted in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, where 85% of buyers prefer such cars. Avtostat also confirms that in addition to the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, in several other constituent entities of the Russian Federation, the share of sales of cars with a manual gearbox is higher than with an automatic transmission.
So, for example, in Kalmykia, 60% of buyers choose “mechanics”, in the Kostroma region new cars with manual transmissions take 55%, in Udmurtia and the Tambov region – 53%. In the republics of Mari El and Tyva, as well as in the Kirov, Orenburg and Kurgan regions, the market share of new cars with “mechanics” is 51%. The rest of the regions are dominated by “automata”.
In total, in the Russian new car market, the share of the manual gearbox is 34%. At the same time, 66% of buyers prefer cars with automatic gearboxes. At the same time, 90% of new cars purchased by residents and guests of Moscow are equipped with automatic transmissions.
