“Toyota’s production abroad has deep roots in the local soil and is based on the local infrastructure, and we usually do not immediately change our volume of output and prices amid currency fluctuations,” Toyota spokesman Naoki Sumino told TASS.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation confirmed that plans for production in Russia have been unchanged. “We have no specific changes in the production volume in Russia and the prices due to currency fluctuations,” a spokesman said.
“But we will be monitoring the situation related to the ruble’s sharp fall,” he added.
Japanese car giant Nissan has refused to comment, saying that the company’s branches in Russian regions have better knowledge of the situation. Earlier this week, media reports said Nissan hikes the prices on a number of models on sale in Russia, including Nissan Almera, Juke, Qashqai, Patrol and GT-R.
The ruble hit lows of 100 against euro and 80 to dollar earlier this week, but strengthened to 58.99 per dollar and 72.5 per euro in the afternoon trading on Thursday.
