84% of the fleet belongs to passenger cars, with 41.6 million vehicles. 4% of the park consists of light commercial vehicles, almost 4 million units in quantitative terms. The number of trucks registered in the country is a little bit less (3.7 million), making up 7.5% of the market. Buses have a share of around 1% in Russian automobile park, with 400,000 units.
According to the results of the survey, the average age of a passenger car in Russia is 12.9 years. The average age goes down in foreign brands, to 10.4 years. The home brand fleet is considerably older, with an average age of 16.4 years (including CIS countries).
