6708We should remind that in general the growth of the Russian automotive market was 12% in 2017. According to Sergey Tselikov, director of AUTOSTAT agency, the main reason for the slowdown in the growth of the car market in the capital is a new Moscow transport policy aimed at removal of vehicles out of the center - growing cost and territory covered with paid parking, public transport and car sharing development.

At the same time, outside Moscow, a modern family cannot do without a car. Therefore, this trend will continue for a long time and the region will continue to outstrip Moscow in the dynamics of the car market.
