May 24, 2021

The Russian car market, which returned to the growth in April due to a low base, moved up to the second place in the ranking of the largest car markets in Europe.

According to the data received by the AUTOSTAT agency in the national associations of European automakers, Germany remains the leader in car sales in the previous month, where 229,650 cars were sold (+ 90%). If, when considering the European automotive market, we take into account Russia, then our country has risen to the second place of the European rating. According to preliminary estimates of the agency "AUTOSTAT", sales of passenger cars were more than 150 thousand units in the previous month (excluding LCV).

The third place among the largest European car markets was occupied by Italy with 145,033 cars (an increase of 34 times). The fourth result was shown by Great Britain - 141,583 cars, which is 33 times higher than the previous year. As noted by the British Society of Automobile Manufacturers and Auto Dealers (SMMT), dealerships, which at the beginning of the year could only provide distance sales of cars, have reopened their doors to visitors since April 12th. In this regard, SMMT expects a record growth in demand in the coming months, also due to a low base of the previous year.

This time France finishes the top five of European leaders, the dealers of which increased sales 6.7 times to 140,426 cars. We also add that the Spanish car market in April grew 18.9 times to 78,595 cars.
