Russiaís August sales took a headlong 24.3 per cent dive into negative territory, coming in the wake of 14.9 and 20.3 per cent falls in both June and July, tempting AIDís market watchers to the view that Russiaís car market looks seriously sick and the patientís health has continued to worsened alarmingly with each passing month. 

Thatís the sobering picture painted by grim recent figures of a fast deteriorating market that not so long ago was still tipped to become Europeís biggest car market. 

Drawing attention to Russiaís fast deterioration new car market, which is currently subjected to the fastest pace of decline in any major market.

Following 11-months of tumbling sales last year, the current year kicked off with a comparatively modest 3.7 per cent car sales slide in the first quarter. 

That was followed by a notably steeper 10.3 per cent drop in the second quarter. 

The steep fall-off in demand seen since then has tempted AIDís forecasters to the gloomy view that Russiaís sick-looking car market, if left totally unaided, remains on track for a thumping one quarter plunge during this yearís third quarter. 

Adding, AID believes that the intensifying car sales drought seen in Russia of late still has a lot further to run.
