Russia February sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles increased 0.8%, or by 1,008 sold units, amounting to 120,081 cars according to the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee (AEB AMC).

“After [a] slight decrease in the first month of this year, February new vehicle sales of 120,081 units show again a slight increase versus [the] same month of the previous year,” said AEB AMC chairman, Thomas Staertzel.

“This seems to be a sign of continuous stabilisation followed by a further recovery month. In general, the market remains at last year’s level as the AMC announced at the recent press conference.

“March will provide a more accurate picture with sales data from all the reporting brands.”
