The third quarter fall was 13.9% year on year, but the AEB was optimistic the overall sales decline in 2020 would be less severe than feared as Russian businesses face fewer restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic than earlier this year.

"Traditionally, September is a good month for the automotive business," Thomas Staertzel, Chairman of the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee, said in a statement, adding that deferred purchase demand and the weakening rouble had helped sales.
