Article by Anita Panait, on August 27, 2013

Chinese carmakers continue to post solid sales in Russia despite the overall weakness in the country's car and light-truck market. Zhejiang Geely Holding Group posted a 61-surge year-on-year in sales in Russia in July to 2,773 vehicles, according to the Moscow-based Association of European Businesses. Geely also posted an 81-percent year-on-year hike in sales in Russia to 14,474 units in the first seven months of this year.

With those figures, Geely is undisputedly the top-selling Chinese automaker in Russia.  Another Chinese carmaker, Chongqing Lifan Industry Group logged a 37-percent year-on-year gain in sales in Russia to 2,603 units in July, and a 24-percent year-on-year increase in sales in the first seven months of 2013 to 14,083 units.

Great Wall Motor Co. reported a 48-percent jump in sales in Russia to 1,708 vehicles in July and a 72-percent year-on-year climb to 12,122 units in the first seven months of the year. Chery Automobile Co. racked an 8-percent surge in Russian sales to 1,853 vehicles in July, and 12-percent to climb 11,525 units in the first seven months of 2013. On the other hand, overall light vehicle sales in Russia dropped 8-percent year-on-year in July to 234,569 units and a 6-percent dive 1,567,892 units in the first seven months of 2013.
