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."
