NOVO-OGARYOVO, December 26, /ITAR-TASS/. The Izhevsk-based automotive pant IzhAvto will launch the production of Renault-Nissan cars from 2014 and plans to roll out 300,000 cars a year, head of the Russian republic of Udmurtia Alexander Volkov told journalists after a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Volkov reminded that three years ago the Russian president helped IzhAvto, idling at that time, to resume production. Back then, the president asked Russia’s leading car manufacturer AvtoVAZ, Russian Technologies and Sberbank to take efforts to save the plant.
“Today, IzhAvto is firmly standing on its feet manufacturing AvtoVAZ’s new models and cars of the Renault-Nissan alliance,” Volkov noted. “In 2014, it will begin the production of Nissan cars, and the production of Renault cars from 2015. By 2017, the plant’s capacity will be 300,000 cars a year, or twice as many as it used to manufacture in the Soviet era.”
He also noted that the plant had created about 15,000 jobs, plus more jobs to be created at facilities manufacturing car components.
