‘Yekaterinburg’s automobile market has shrunk by 40% to 45% since the recession started. This is why we are going to have only one of the three initially planned show rooms commissioned this year. This will be our motor show in the city’s Zheleznodorozhniy district. All in all, five show rooms in Metallurgov St. have had to be frozen,’ Deputy Mayor of Yekaterinburg Viktor Konteev said at a press briefing in Yekaterinburg.

The frozen show rooms belong to Volkswagen, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and UralFranceAvto. As for the BMW show room, it won’t be opened this year, but the construction process has begun. The only show room to start operating this year is Asia Motors in Manevrovaya St.
