By Simon Warburton

Russia sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles decreased by 6.5% in July, 2021, compared to the same month last year, or by 9,284 sold units.

The sales amounted to 132,640 cars according to the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee (AEB AMC).

“As stated in the June press-release, we experienced this month a slight market downturn YoY,” said AEB AMC chairman, Thomas Staertzel.

“In July, 2021, 132,640 PCs and LCVs were sold which is 6.5% less than the strong July, 2020 [after the lift of pandemic restrictions]. In January – July, 2021, 953,760 cars were sold, which is still a 28.4% increase in comparison with the same period of [the] previous year.

“The next months will show further corrections linked to limiting effects of worldwide production cuts, following the shortage of electronic components.”
