And not only Chinese sellers.
Chinese cars occupy an increasing share of the Russian market. Only now there is no excitement among buyers.
One of the reasons for this is unreasonably high prices, not only for cars made in China, but also for models whose production is localized on the territory of the Customs Union.
If we recalculate the prices for Chinese cars in Russia in rubles, then we sell them 1.5–2 times more expensive than in China.

The difference in prices is due to the greed of Chinese manufacturers and Russian customs. There is no other explanation, just as there is no justification. Both of them took advantage of the prevailing circumstances in the Russian car market,” said Sergey Klimov, a member of the Board of Directors of DOLAVTO Group of Companies.
In his opinion, a reasonable price should be based on the cost of transport costs and customs payments in the amount of 5-10%.
Denis Reshetnikov, head of the dealership of the Fresh Auto network, agrees with him. In his opinion, a number of unscrupulous dealers overestimate the recommended retail prices, taking advantage of the fact that the products of the Chinese auto industry today are practically the only alternative to domestic cars.
