According to Autonews.ru, dealerships explain the inability to provide Moskvich 3 customers with cars for test drives by the fact that they themselves are not yet ready for this procedure.
Despite the fact that Moskvich 3 cars have been arriving in showrooms across the country since the beginning of this year, they are all intended for sale. Dealerships do not yet have cars for test drives.
However, this is a fairly standard practice familiar to buyers of Chinese cars: when new models appear on the market, there are no cars for a test drive right away either. Before purchasing, such customers are offered to ride around the car dealership site.
As explained to the correspondent of Autonews.ru, the new "Moskvich" is now also possible to ride only on the site of the car dealership.
In addition, one of the dealerships denied rumors about the rise in price of "Moskvich". They also offer to book a car at the declared price (1.97 million for the gasoline version with manual transmission) so as not to worry about it.
The Telegram channel of the Moskvich plant published information that in the near future 3,000 new Moskvich 3 crossovers will be delivered to taxi and car sharing services.
