Expert: Reduction of state support is unlikely to significantly impact the automotive market trends
"The Analytical Center predicted an increase in the car market sales in 2018 by 9-11 percent back in late 2017," Grigory Mikrukov, Head of the Department for Sectors of Economy of the Analytical Center, told the Rossiyskaya Gazeta. "The high growth rate of the automotive market at the beginning of the year was a result of the low base effect and deferred demand. The second half of last year saw sales of cars and light commercial vehicles go up on expectations of the increase in the VAT rate, the key interest rate of the Bank of Russia and variability in the exchange rate of the Russian ruble. All these factors conspired to prompt buyers who had originally planned to only buy new vehicles in 2019 to make their purchases earlier."

We can't expect any major breakthroughs in the automotive industry
