The continuing shortage of new cars in the Russian market can cause new growth prices at the beginning of 2023. The expected 10% increase in value is due to the fact that by the first quarter of next year, existing inventory will be sold out. About this, with reference to dealers, reports TASS.

According to available estimates, motorists should not expect a decline in car prices, the existing trends only lead them to a further rise in price. It is noted that the final cost is influenced by exchange rates and logistics supply chains, which are becoming more complicated due to the restrictions introduced.

The situation can be improved by parallel imports, however, car market participants believe that the volume of cars imported in this way will not be enough to completely cover the existing deficit.

Earlier, auto lawyer Serhiy Radko told the Public News Service about way buy a car for half the price. According to the expert, the practice of buying a car from abroad is becoming more common, which often allows you to save a lot. But he warned of the associated risks of stumbling upon scammers.
