Car Sales Down for 4th Consecutive Month

Sales of cars fell for the fourth straight month, down 11 percent year on year in June, the Association of European Businesses said on Monday.

The AEB recently slashed its forecast for the full year and predicts a 5 percent decrease.

The association said 241,346 units were sold in June. The 11 percent fall follows a 12 percent slide in May, an 8 percent fall in April and a 4 percent contraction in March.

"The question now is whether the market can do better in the second half of the year," JЪrg Schreiber, Chairman of the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee, said in a statement. "Personally I believe it can."

… 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.
