News
According to AUTO-Consulting, in 2018 the sales of new trucks (gross vehicle weight exceeding 3.5 tons) increased by 21.9% in Ukraine, as compared to 2017, i.e., up to 4,684 pieces.
Such material growth of the heavy duty trucks sales, along with the new passenger cars market decline, makes up a positive trend, the heavy duty trucks segment being the most sensitive to the changes in various consuming industries (the agriculture, construction, etc.), acting as a certain indicator of the economy's overall condition.
