Car Sales Up in February

Russian new car and light commercial vehicle sales accelerated in February, advancing the most since November, the Association of European Businesses in Russia said Sunday.

Sales rose 25 percent from a year earlier to 206,873, up from 20 percent growth in January. The 10 best-selling passenger cars were all produced domestically, the group said.

Growth so far this year is more than anticipated, said David Thomas, chairman of the group's automobile manufacturing committee. "As the first two months in the Russian market are subject to vacations and the impact of closing stocks, it is too early to revise our full-year view," he said.


… 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.
