MOSCOW, August 17. /TASS/. Russian car producer Sollers and Japanese car giant Toyota cancelled contract on manufacturing Land Cruiser Prado cars in Russia’s Far East, Sollers official representative told TASS on Monday.
"The production was suspended in July. As of today the contract has been cancelled," he said, adding that in order to resume manufacturing of Toyota cars at Sollers plant the 2 sides will have to make a new contract.
Earlier Toyota announced launch of upgraded version of Land Cruiser Prado in Russia. The company said the new model is manufactured at Toyota’s Tahara plant in Japan and is imported to Russia.
Sollers representative said the manufacturing site, which earlier produced LC Prado, currently manufactures Mazda cars.
Sollers owns production sites that produce Russian UAZ and Korean SsangYong SUVs, Japanese ISUZU trucks, and ZMZ petrol and diesel engines. It works in partnership with Ford, SsangYong, Toyota, Mazda and Isuzu.
