The failure of the century: Russia's automotive market has experienced a catastrophic decline

In April 2020, according to the Agency “AUTOSTAT”, in Russia sold less than 55 thousand cars, which means a reduction of the market almost tripled, if you count in annual terms. It was the biggest drop in sales in the history of post-Soviet automotive industry, and is a result in itself — the worst for almost 20 years.

Since the beginning of zero years, the average monthly sales of cars in Russia remained at the level of more than 120 thousand cars, and only in the dead periods like the January holidays fell to marks at the level of 50-60 thousand cars a month, so the result is the current APR can be considered a record for the market since the beginning of the XXI century.
