Financial grant

With Decree 30 of 15 January 2014, the Russian government approved the allocation from the federal budget of 25.2 billion Roubles (USD 710 million) in 2014; 27 billion (USD 760 million) in 2015; 29 billion (USD 810 million) in 2016 to Russian manufacturers of motor vehicles for partial coverage of their expenses for issuance and fulfilment of warranties related to the Euro 4 and Euro 5 standards.

The announced official state goals to be achieved with this state subsidy are:

  • to raise the competitiveness of the local automobile industry;
  • to achieve a share of Russian-made motor vehicles on the domestic market of 80% for cars, 90% for commercial minivans; 85% for trucks; and 99% for buses;
  • to stimulate automotive manufacturing in the Russian regions, including Siberia and the Russian Far East.
  • to increase the value added in the sector to 48% (2.2 trillion roubles). 

Indirectly, this state initiative aims to compensate the Russian manufacturers of motor vehicles for the loss of competitiveness provoked by the introduction of waste disposal (scrappage) fee (see related GTA measure below).
