MOSCOW, March 20 – RIA Novosti. According to the information provided by RIA Novosti to the Association of Automobile Dealers of Russia, the biggest shortcoming among popular foreign cars in the bulk segment in the Russian Federation was noted for the French brand Renault.

They also said that Rolf has very little stock left for Volkswagen and Skoda. “Of the mass brands on the Russian market, there are: Hyundai, KIA, Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan. All mass brands are still represented in the SUV line, but there is a shortage in the B and B + segments. Now they are presented in extremely limited quantities: Volkswagen, Skoda, Renault, these are remnants of imported cars. When they replace Chinese brands, there will be shortages,” said Maxim Zlatokrylets, the company’s new car sales manager.
The top manager also explained that Rolf is trying to fill the gap in the most popular car models through alternative supply channels.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation last week approved an updated list of goods for which parallel imports are allowed. It included cars of 12 foreign car brands: Renault, Ford, Kia, Mazda, Hyundai, Genesis, Dacia, Citroen, Opel, Peugeot, Isuzu and Hino.
