MOSCOW. Jan 15 (Interfax) - The Irito group of companies, Russia's largest importer of vehicles from China, increased its sales by 94.2% in 2006, the company said in a press release.

"The growth in the sales was possible due to the expanded product line offered by the company," the statement says.

Pickup trucks and off-road vehicles led sales in 2005, while light cars (about 33% of sales) and commercial vehicles (14%) accounted for a larger portion of total sales in 2006.

Vehicles produced by the Great Wall company, which announced its intention to construct a factory in Russia at the beginning of the year, are the most popular Chinese cars, with 4,788 pickup trucks and off-road vehicles sold. Vehicles of the Deer lineup, which account for 65% of sales, remain the most popular models.

The Irito group of companies imports China's Great Wall, FAW, BYD Auto, Hafei Motor, Foton and DFM vehicles to Russia. ar jh
