Small Truck Growth

Total light commercial vehicles in Russia will increase by 18.7 percent to 4.04 million vehicles by 2015 compared with 2009, the Avtostat analytical agency said Thursday.

“We expect the fleet to increase by 2.3 percent to 4.2 percent a year over the next five years and come to around 4.04 million units by 2015. At the same time, the fleet of domestically built vehicles will yield to the rate of foreign model growth,” said Sergei Udalov, the agency’s executive director. Foreign models will account for three-fourths of the increase in LCVs by 2015, including those made domestically.  


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
