Sales of electric Moskvich vehicles did not live up to expectations

by alex

By the end of 2023, it is planned to sell more than 2 thousand of these cars

The head of KamAZ Sergei Kogogin (KAMAZ, we recall, is a technological partner of the Moscow Automobile Plant, formerly owned by Renault) admitted that sales of the electric «Moskvich 3e» did not live up to expectations.

«If we say whether I am satisfied with the sales result: well, let’s say, probably, our expectations were higher. The main problem is that we only became eligible for a subsidy for electric vehicles in the fourth quarter. Before this, we had not signed a SPIC, and everything was delayed. But nevertheless, in any case, we will sell more than 2 thousand electric cars “Moskvich 3e” this year», — said Sergei Kogogin, quoted by TASS.

Representatives of «Moskvich» said that since the start of sales, more than 13 thousand Moskvich cars have been sold, of which electric vehicles — about 1.4 thousand. That is, during the remaining days of December, at least 600 Moskvich 3e should be sold, and this is a serious task, given that the car is not particularly in demand.
