The ministry of the industry and trade published data on statistics of delivery of soft car loans in the I quarter of this year. As of March 31 of this year in Russia 39 348 soft loans were issued. At the same time the number of applications made 93 892. Thus, banks gave nearly 2,5 times less credits, than received applications. Besides, according to data of sales, according to the program of preferential car loans only about 7,6% of new cars from 517 304 realized in January - March of this year were sold.

The program of preferential car loans provides lower interest rates - 7 - 10% per annum in comparison with 12 - 20% per annum on usual car loans. It is possible to get not only the car, but also light commercial vehicles. Under the terms of participation in the program of subsidizing of consumer car loans the initial contribution makes 15%, the maximum cost of the car of the Russian production - 600 thousand rubles, the loan is granted for 36 months under bank percent minus 2/3 rates of refinancing of the Central Bank of Russia. Minpromtorg this year predicts delivery about 120 thousand soft car loans. This program works since March, 2009 according to it more than 500 thousand statements are adopted, and issued to about 260 thousand credits.

It is expected that the program of preferential car loans will work at least to the middle of 2013.

In Sberbank of which during action of the program more than 60% of volume of soft loans are the share the high level of approval on car loans remains and the tendency to growth of number of refusals is not observed, the director of management of retail crediting of Sberbank of Russia Natalya Karasyova claimed recently. Apparently, it is caused by the fact that other credit institutions having high percent of refusal " were connected to the program; - she considers. For example, large foreign banks, such as Raiffeisen Bank, do not want to risk and in nine of ten cases refuse granting a car loan. And head of department of development of car loans Yunicredit of " Bank; Ivan Syskov also noted that in Yunicredit " Bank; approval level on car loans is rather high. It is quite possible that the gap between the number of the accepted applications and the issued credits in general according to the program is caused not by a large number of refusals, but long turns exist a so-called pent-up demand - on the most popular cars already and the buyer waits for the car several months - the representative " said; Yunicredit of " Bank;.
