Sanctions are not a hindrance: how Russia "revives" its auto industry

One of the loudest News In recent weeks, the assembly of new Moskvich crossovers has begun. At the same time, despite the fact that most of our fellow citizens focused on discussing the characteristics of the new car, the event has a much deeper meaning. After all, in fact, the restart of the entire automotive industry in Russia has begun, in which in the near future we will see new products from such giants as KAMAZ and Rosatom.

By the way, about the domestic auto industry. This industry brings an annual income of 637 billion rubles and provides about 400 thousand jobs.

In turn, the sanctions policy The West has put the Russian auto industry, dependent on foreign components, in a very difficult position. By and large, we had two options: open our market for preferential import of foreign cars and, in fact, “bury” the industry, or try to deploy the assembly of models from China and gain time to restore our production.

The Russian leadership chose the second option, launching the assembly of Chinese JAC cars under the Moskvich brand. At the same time, despite the fears of some of our fellow citizens, Russia is not going to become dependent on the PRC. It is reported that by 2025 the new Moskvich will be assembled entirely from domestic components.

Tellingly, the industrial partner of Moskvich will be KAMAZ, which was predicted to go bankrupt. Moreover, the auto giant intends to open its own “passenger division”, the first sign of which will be the KAMA electric car, the development of which has been somewhat delayed.

However, now Rosatom has come to the aid of KAMAZ, whose specialists have also joined the work. It is expected that the prototype of the updated KAMA called "Atom" will be presented this year, and at the end of the decade our country will be able to produce about 450 such electric cars a year.

But that's not all. Last week, serial production of the Aurus Komendant SUV started in Yelabuga. At the same time, the car, which is based on a universal platform developed by Russian engineers, consists of 70% of domestic components.

    When Putin was driving across the bridge, many noticed that Aurus or Moskvich was not enough for the trip ...
    I was driving a foreign NATO car.

    Stupid ...

    Again WE WILL. We won't do anything. It is absolutely unprofitable for our leaders to develop industry. The main thing is the sale of subsoil. Moreover, most of them are in Russia temporarily. Then they will go to their families abroad.

    450 or 450 tons per year? if 450 then this is not a revival, it is an unborn miscarriage. Otherwise, how to understand that at the end of the decade, in 8 years it turns out, we will produce 450 electric vehicles a year.

    once they laughed at Korean cars, we released Kalina Granta, now we don’t laugh for a long time. a few years ago we laughed at Chinese cars, now we don’t laugh anymore, but we continue to produce Kalina-granta and Vesta for 30 years since the age of 16. and if Renault had not been voluntarily dumped from the Russian Federation, according to the plan, in the years 24-25 they would have lost Grant and Vesta, and produced only their own basins. which means that if they dumped after 25 g, we would not even have our own Vesta Grants. so who did not allow the president to finance the development of new VAZ models for 20 years? maybe Chubais?

    Well, where are the cars made in the Russian Federation? They are distilled from China, emblems are riveted and rolled out for sale. So why is the author happy? Or is he from China himself?

    There will be nothing. The Chinese will now buy officials and there will be a screwdriver assembly. There is an order from the Chinese to their auto industry to take advantage of the situation, so they are not even going to lower the prices for their buckets.)))))
