The Russians spent 171 billion rubles on the purchase of new passenger cars in January this year. This is 8% more than a year ago. These are the data of the AUTOSTAT analytical agency.
According to experts, the growth in market capacity in monetary terms is largely due to an increase in the weighted average price, which increased by 13 percent in January 2021. And this happened despite the drop in sales of new passenger cars — by 5 percent.
