AvtoVAZ sees total 2010 Russia car sales at 1.7 mln

PARIS, June 11 (Reuters) -AvtoVAZ AVAZ.MM, Russia's biggest carmaker, expects total car sales in Russia to exceed 1.7 million this year from 1.47 million in 2009 due to the state-backed cash-for clunkers scheme, the company CEO told Reuters on Friday.

Igor Komarov also said that he sees AvtoVAZ market share in Russia shrinking to 27-29 percent from around 30 percent now.
