The decrease in statistics was also influenced by the suspension since mid-March, registrations of used cars, caused by the quarantine restrictions.
Compared to the 1st quarter of last year, the market of cars in Ukraine decreased by more than two times, as reported by Ukrautoprom Association.
So, in the 1st quarter of 2020, the Ukrainians have bought and put on record 99 800 cars: 20.3 thousand new and 79.5 thousand cleared b/y cars.
“We were affected by the sharp drop in registrations of imported cars with mileage. We will remind, a year earlier, the country had a preferential customs clearance and legalization of the so-called “EuroBLECH”, resulting in figures of registrations of used cars were then historically high.
Also its role in the formation of the negative dynamics was played by the suspension since mid-March, registrations of used cars, caused by the quarantine restrictions,” – said in the message.
In addition, the registration of new passenger cars in the first 3 months increased by 11%.
“But because of their small share in the primary market, this growth could not offset General losses”, – noted in the Association.
Most popular new cars in the 1st quarter of 2020 became the Renault Duster (1479 pieces), a leader in the cleared second-hand – Volkswagen Passat – 4584 PCs.
Yet it was reported that car production in Ukraine fell by almost a quarter.
