The All-Ukrainian Association of Car Importers and Dealers claims that sales of foreign cars in Ukraine fell by 4 times in the first decade of November compared to the first decade of October of 2008.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Olena Dunina, member of the Association’s board and director general of AUTO International company, claimed this to a press conference in UNIAN.

According to her, the sales fell due to reduction of consumer crediting by 5-6 times and the growth of currency exchange rates, which, in its turn, increased prices on imported cars in national currency.

Besides, according to her, the Association forecasts that on results of the year 2008, the foreign car sales in Ukraine will make almost 600 thousand cars, and on results of the year 2009 – 380-400 thousand cars.
