AvtoVAZ President Maxim Sokolov said that the plant is working without stopping despite the sanctions.
“Although, of course, problems have arisen in connection with this, we are solving them. Every 26 seconds, one new car rolls off the production lines of the enterprise, and each of them finds its buyer,” he noted.
In December, the first pilot batch of e-Largus electric vehicles will be assembled at the site in Izhevsk, mass production of which should begin next year.
“But production volumes depend on demand, and this, in turn, depends on the support of buyers from the Russian government. After all, this electric car is localized to the maximum extent possible in Russia, and we expect that such support will be significant,” Sokolov said.
