According to experts, the average age of cars in Ukraine is currently 20 years. Against this background, imported cars are much younger. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the average age of an imported car is 8.5-9 years.
Such indicators are due to two factors. First, it is the demand for cheap cars in the secondary market. Secondly, it is the cost of customs clearance, because of it it makes no sense to import older cars into the country, because their cost will be much more expensive than their counterparts in Ukraine. First of all, this is due to the excise formula according to which the older the car, the more it will cost for customs clearance.
American auctions also have a significant impact on car age statistics. Because the average age of a car bought there rarely exceeds 5-6 years.
