By mid-April, many car dealers adapted to restrictive measures and started selling cars online. Despite restrictions, about 82% of dealerships worked, and in May - 95%.

According to the Avito service press service, the pandemic has changed the car market. According to a study by the analytical agency AUTOSTAT and Avito Auto, most dealers did not stop working during restrictive measures.

The study was conducted using a telephone survey of car dealers who regularly place ads in the Avito Auto section. About one thousand entrepreneurs from 14 major cities of Russia participated in the survey.

According to the data received, 82% of car dealers worked in April, and in May even more - about 95%. Moreover, even in Moscow and St. Petersburg, where in May there was a ban on the operation of car dealerships, the share of closed centers was naturally higher than the national average and amounted to 10%.

In May, about 73% of dealers who continued to work, introduced communication through instant messengers. Detailed photo and video reports online sent to their customers in May also about 70%.

Also, about 60% of sellers were ready to get a car loan online in April. But in May, only 38% of market players retained the remote lending service for used cars.
