November Car Sales Fall 6% Year-On-Year

November 2013 saw a decrease in sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles in Russia by 4 percent in comparison to the same period in 2012, the Association of European Businesses said in a press release Monday.

231,982 units were sold in November, down 8,595, or 6 percent, year-on-year.

"No question, the total industry is still declining, albeit at a slower pace," said Joerg Schreiber, chairman of the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee. "The long-awaited flattening of year-on-year sales trend has yet to happen. We hope December will show progress in this direction and deliver a decent close to an otherwise difficult year 2012."

… 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.
