The new passenger car market grew by 8.2% (4.6 thousand vehicles) in the North Caucasus, by 5.8% (almost 10 thousand vehicles), in Siberia. The dynamics in Central Federal District (which accounts for almost a third of the entire market) is lower than the average in Russia; 52.5 thousand vehicles were sold here. (+ 5.6%). We should mention, that this market, obviously, was largely affected by low sales in Moscow (in July, residents of the capital purchased 1% fewer new vehicles than a year ago). The least growth in the new vehicle sales was registered in the Far Eastern Federal District (+ 1.1%; 2.1 thousand vehicles). However, taking into account its small market share (1.4%), this did not have a serious impact on the overall picture.
