Sales of UAZ in June headed for growth
After the May drop in demand for products of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant, the June growth, albeit small, can be considered the beginning of a positive trend. Whether it will receive development will show new statistics.
According to the results of the May sales of UAZ, domestic analysts started talking about a sharp drop in sales volumes of Ulyanovsk cars. Then the recorded decline in demand reached 32 percent. The following month, the brand managed to catch up a bit: in June, sales of new cars with the UAZ logo increased by one percent (by June 2018). This is equivalent to 3,140 new and used cars carzaamin.com and commercial vehicles, writes AUTOSTAT.
In general, in the first six months of this year, the Russians acquired 16,790 UAZ vehicles, which is four percent lower than last year’s result. The brand share in the Russian market today is two percent.
Meanwhile, European sales of LADA fell by almost a quarter . Last month only 404 cars were sold in Europe, which demonstrated a sharp drop in demand – by 27.9%.
