289 units of personal passenger transport per 1,000 Tatarstan citizens were registered in 2020. In 12 months, their number increased by 0,9% — 291,7 cars in 2021.

From 2023, the indicator will only decrease, according to Ramil Khairullin, the regional representative of the Federation of Car Owners of Russia in Tatarstan. In a conversation with Realnoe Vremya, he expressed the opinion that it would take about two years to restore the car market after the withdrawal of foreign brands.

The growth of highway length

A sharp increase in the length of highways in Tatarstan was observed in 2021, when it increased by almost 1,000 kilometres in 12 months, reaching 43,4 thousand kilometres. At the same time, no such drastic changes were observed during the previous 4 years.

A year earlier, this value was 42,617 kilometres. It is worth noting that from 2017 to 2020, the length of roads increased by only 500 kilometres.
