FRANKFURT, September 16. /TASS/. Japanese automaker Nissan plans to export cars produced in Russia and discusses with the Russian government the possibility of launching measures to export support, Paul Willcox the Head of Nissan’s European Division said Wednesday."We are considering all possibilities for export - the only question is cost-effectiveness. We are working with the Russian authorities on this subject. The situation is difficult - both in terms of rates and in terms of price competitiveness," he said. Willcox said that the company intends to use the mechanism to support exports of its products from Russia. "We are very interested in it, because we have spare capacities in Russia," he added.
Nissan plants in Western Europe are fully loaded, while Nissan's plant in St. Petersburg and AvtoVAZ plant in Togliatti allow the company to increase production.
"Therefore, if we find opportunities for export, we will use them. But at the moment from a financial point of view it is very difficult - we are working with the Russian authorities on the possible support mechanisms," Willcox said, noting that so far there are no specific agreements between the company and the Russian authorities.
Nissan plant in St. Petersburg was opened in 2009; its current capacity is about 100,000 units. In 2014 the plant produced 31,600 cars. The plant produces X-Trail, Teana, Murano and Pathfinder models, will start producing Qashkai in late October.
