Chinese cars fill the Russian market

After the Russia-Ukraine conflict in 2022, many automobile manufacturers transferred and withdrew their Russian factories, while Chinese automobile manufacturers filled the gap in the market. The best-selling Chinese cars in Russia mainly come from three companies: Chery, Great Wall, and Geely.

Among them, Chery was one of the best-selling Chinese car brands in Russia last year. According to relevant data, Chery's average monthly sales in Russia in 2022 were approximately 4475 vehicles, 2940 vehicles for the Great Wall, and 2035 vehicles for Geely.

In addition to the markets mentioned earlier, Chinese cars are also sold to multiple regions, and the scope of "going to sea" has also been expanding.

In addition, in order to help Chinese automobile brands accelerate their sailing, China has continuously strengthened the construction of container ships. Recently, the world's largest and super large container ship, the Mediterranean Tessa, independently developed by China, was delivered in Shanghai. At the same time, relevant enterprises will also build and optimize China's automobile export International marketing service platform.
