The engines will be used in GAZ buses and trucks from Nizhny Novgorod. The production of these components almost ceased at the end of 2021, but the current situation is forcing the Russians to return to the old solutions said the announcer.
As I mentioned, car factories in Russia have lost access to modern electronics, security systems, etc., engines. For these reasons, the government in Moscow allowed cars to be produced as standard from the early 1990s, that is, without airbags.
There are only 14 foreign car brands left on the Russian market, 10 of which are Chinese firms. At the beginning of the year there were 60 of them, the rest left Russia as a result of the sanctions imposed on this country for aggression against Ukraine. New car sales in the country are down 61% year-on-year, down 78% currently. Of the sales are Chinese-made cars, the BBC reported earlier this month.
In the third decade of November, it was reported that Russia has resumed production of Moskvitch cars, known since the times of the USSR. Production began in Moscow, at factories acquired from the French car company Renault, which followed in the footsteps of other Western brands and pulled out of the Russian market. Earlier – until the end of 2001 – this factory, established in 1930, belonged to Moskwicz.
Since the start of the invasion of Ukraine, more than 400 global corporations have left Russia, leaving billions of dollars in assets.
