Car sales in Russia rose 5% to 2.95M in January, according to data from the Association of European Businesses. It's nice progress for a market eventually expected to overtake Germany as the most important in the region. General Motors (GM +0.8%), Ford (F +0.4%), Fiat (FIATY.PK), and Volvo (VOLVY.PK) have all stepped up their investments in the nation with an eye to the potential growth opportunities.

    That is 2.95 million vehicles for the year, not for the month of January.

     

    The article says "The AEB has estimated that 2.95 million cars will be sold in Russia during 2013, flat on the previous year's figure of 2.94 million, as drivers curb spending due to concerns about economic troubles in Europe."

     

    Perhaps fix with: "Car sales in Russia rose 5% to 2.95M SAAR in January"
