Demand for new cars in the Russian Federation, despite the ongoing rise in prices and exorbitant dealer “cheats”, still exceeds supply, Rossiyskaya Gazeta (RG) reports.

As the newspaper notes, in 2021 alone, due to the total shortage and inflated price tags, the Russian car market missed about 300 thousand cars, and in 2022 the trend, apparently, will continue.

Cars have not been added to stock since the beginning of the year, and buyers still have to pre-order, often without guarantees of a fixed price and delivery time. For some models, the queue has already moved to 2023, emphasizes RG.

We also recall that at the end of December, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, Denis Manturov, did not rule out that the shortage of new cars on the Russian market could continue in the first half of next year. According to him, today “there is a certain shortage of automotive products for consumers, and, probably, it will remain for the first half of next year.”

We add that, according to the Association of European Businesses (AEB), sales of new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (LCV) in Russia last year increased by 4.3% compared to 2020 to 1.667 million units, although they fell in December by 19. 9% to 133.47 thousand units.
