Car dealers from China capture the car market of the Russian Federation

Chinese car dealers have begun to take over the Russian car market. They offer Chinese automotive products and are gradually expanding their business. Therefore, it will be very difficult to force them out of the market when they get used to it normally. Throughout 2022, they actively replaced the departed Western and Asian companies that supported restrictions against Russia and decided to leave the market.

Currently, there are more than 1 official car dealers of Chinese companies in the Russian Federation, which is almost 1,5 times more than it was a year ago. As of mid-January 2023, their total number has increased by 46%, amounting to 1053 centers.

At the same time, the Russian auto industry expanded its dealer network by 8% to 452 centers. There are also car dealers from Iran. Due to this, the market of car dealers in the Russian Federation sank by only 2%, i.е. anti-Russian sanctions failed to bring it down.

Auto giants from Europe have already curtailed their business by 19%, automakers from Japan have reduced their presence by 22%, and the United States by 72%. However, the products of the American automobile industry were not in great demand in Russia. US automakers had only 133 centers before (24 left).

Note that many Western and Asian automakers are not happy with the fact that they left the Russian market. For example, the Japanese company TOYOTA has already announced that it has started importing its components into the territory of the Russian Federation, i.e. she returns to the market. The Japanese are well aware that having lost the market to the Chinese, it will then be problematic for them to regain their positions.

      Sergey, why do new Mercedes rot in a few years?
      Where are the legendary Audi with galvanized bodies?
      I'm not talking about the equally legendary million-plus engines for commercial trucks.
      The German auto industry has slid to the Chinese level of the beginning of the century. God forbid to ride before the warranty period without serious problems.
      We don't need this kind of "hockey" ... negative

        I don't follow.
        But yesterday about "new Mercedes rot in a few years" on autoradio they said the opposite.
        The hosts were just arguing about what to take. The consensus is...
        1) Used Japanese. 2) New Chinese, because. parts are cheap. 3) Used European, only because spare parts are expensive ... although it will break less often ...

        Yes, and Putin will not ride on the Crimean bridge in a rotten car ....

    The Chinese just have to wait a little to get the whole of Russia on a silver platter, without a trace. And you are talking about some kind of car market.

      But why do they need Russia, we, like natives, went to the west, now we will be against the Chinese. These dogs have nothing to do in Russia, all the grandmothers are taken over the hill and there is no end in sight.

    As long as there is capitalism in Russia, there will be no order anywhere, in anything and never.
    Who will stop the rise in prices? Who will limit the rate of profit? Who will dispossess the oligarchs?
    Bees against honey?! This doesn't happen.
    Auto industry, just a small touch to the big picture.

    If there had been no pressure from the West, the Europeans would definitely not have left our market. Cheap labor, no costs for industrial robots. Why not life? And the Chinese, don't be fools, have occupied this niche.
