The situation in connection with the pandemic and the devaluation of the ruble did not affect the plans of most residents of the Far East to buy a car. More than half of the respondents (63%) intend to purchase the exact car model that was planned before the restrictive measures. The national average, this figure is 53%.

A corresponding study was conducted by Avito Auto experts. Most motorists of the Far East prefer foreign car brands. In the top of preferences are Toyota, KIA and Nissan.

Approximately one in five respondents is ready to buy a cheaper car, but on schedule. 7% will also choose a less expensive model, but will buy it later. About 5% will shift their preference from a foreign model to a domestic one in order to save money.

8% of the surveyed residents of the Far East completely refuse to buy a car. This is the minimum figure among all regions of the country.

Also, according to a study, one out of a hundred people wants to buy a motorcycle instead of a car. In April, demand for used motor vehicles in Russia grew by almost 40% compared to last year.
