- Sales of new cars in Russia totalled 151,964 units in April, an increase of 290.4% compared with the same month last year when a strict lockdown was in place due to the novel coronavirus, the Association of European Businesses (AEB) said on Wednesday.

"Especially the four biggest local manufacturers show above-market performance compared to the same month of the last year when the lockdown affected them most," said Thomas Staertzel, Chairman of the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee.
