Car dealers have warned about risk of increase in prices for cars because of decline of ruble — Rambler News Service


The official dealers of Avilon interviewed by RNS, Avtospetscentre, Rolf, and Klyuchavto have allowed increase in prices for new cars because of depreciation of the ruble. "Most car makers have the top mark of a corridor of an admissible average rate at the level of 75 rubles for euro for preservation of the current price level. The probability of advance in price will become powerful if the average rate in a month is beyond a corridor more than for 3-5%" — the operating officer of luxury division of the Avilon company Vagif Bikulov has told RNS. According to the top manager of the Avtospetscentre company Alexey Potapov now any of producers with which the group cooperates hasn't raised the price because of currency fluctuations. "If within one month the dollar rises more than 10%, then car makers in the right to raise the prices. Smaller fluctuations don't influence dynamics of the prices. Now, if following the results of August the dollar rises more than 10%, then it is possible to expect price increase in September-October" — Potatov has told RNS. The director of development of the Rolf company Vladimir Miroshnikov has noted that car makers have taken "a waiting attitude before stabilization of a situation (with currency fluctuations)". "If dollar exchange rate doesn't return to reference values in relation to ruble, then it can become one more factor pushing up cars prices. Dollar rate increase is equivalent to proportional increase in entrance cost of cars" — Miroshnikov has told RNS. He has reminded that gradual increase in prices for cars in the Russian market continues since the beginning of year, and the prices will raise further, including because of increase in the VAT since 2019. The representative of Klyuchavto has also reported to RNS that importers didn't report about the change in price for new cars because of currency fluctuations yet. "Most likely some changes in price policy will happen when the situation in the foreign exchange market is stabilized. Always some izmeniye (with the prices) happen to arrival of fall" — the official representative of Klyuchavto has told RNS and has noted that increase in prices can make from several thousand rubles or tens of thousands of rubles. According to Avtostat, in the first half of the year 2018 the average prices of new cars in Russia have grown by 3,5%. "In general by a year their growth can be 5-7%" — the official representative of Avtostat has told RNS. He has noted that, naturally, that increase in prices is influenced also by changes in the exchange rate of ruble.
