VLADIVOSTOK, September 1. /TASS/. The Sollers carmaker plans to resume assembling the SsangYong-designed cars in Russia and hopes to start their sales before the yearend, Sollers Director General Vadim Shvetsov told reporters on Thursday.
"We held relevant talks, gathered dealer bids, formed an order, thus, I think, we will receive new Tivoli cars in the near future," he said, explaining that Tivoli is a new SsangYong car model, which was launched by the company last year. "I hope that cars of the model will be sold in Russia's SsangYong dealer network already within the next three months," Shvetsov said.
In his words, apart from Tivoli, Sollers plans to resume assembling the Actyon model.
Before the suspension of car assembling in Russia, the Sollers annual sales were at about 40,000 cars.
"At the beginning, we are making tentative steps, as the break in our presence on the market lasted several months and the market environment continues to be rather complicated. With this in mind, our sales will be at about 200-2500 cars a month," the Sollers head said.
The SsangYong assembly project was suspended in 2015 due to the economic developments and the sales slowdown of that period.
Sollers is Russia’s carmaker co-operating with such world’s famous car manufacturers as Ford, SsangYong and Mazda. The industrial facilities belonging to the concern produce Russia-designed UAZ off-roaders, South Korean SsangYong, as well as gasoline and diesel engines.
