An increase in the scrappage fee will not cause an increase in prices for domestic cars, as AvtoVAZ and KamAZ promised
Yesterday it became known about a significant increase in waste collection in Russia from August 1, Russian automakers commented on this news. They welcome this move.
“ The increase in the recycling fee will not affect the pricing policy of Avtovaz due to the high localization of all Lada cars. This will also give us the opportunity to create new attractive models for the Russian and export markets ,” said AvtoVAZ and added that the decision will also save more than a million jobs in the automotive and component industries in Russia.
Approximately in the same vein, KamAZ spoke: “ Prices will remain the same. We support the decision .”
A large and detailed commentary was given by Moskvich. The company believes that the increase in waste collection is good for the industry.
AvtoVAZ, KamAZ and Moskvich commented on a significant increase in salvage rates
“ This is an important step for the development of the industry as a whole and for us, as a domestic automaker, which was necessary to take in order to protect local manufacturers. For the last three years there has been no increase in the disposal fee, and this measure will help protect the Russian market. In addition, this is a common support measure in world practice. For example, this solution has been implemented in China for a long time, and we see successful experience and its high efficiency. Together with the ongoing set of measures to support the government of the Russian Federation, we will be able to increase the pace and volume of production and launch new models to meet market demand ,” said the press service of Moskvich.
Meanwhile, experts say that after the entry into force of the new salvage rates, new cars will rise in price. Moreover, Chinese cars produced in Russia have already begun to rise in price . True, there is another reason: the fall of the ruble.
