PSA Peugeot Citroen recently inked a partnership with Agromash Holding, for the assembly and distribution of the French automaker's passenger cars and LCVs in Kazakhstan. Simon Warburton was in contact with the trailer and agricultural machinery manufacturer based in the huge country on Russia's southern border.
AvtoVAZ says it saw sales rise 4.7% in October to 40,207, with nearly 38,000 sold in Russia, up 3.5% compared to September.
Russia's car market faces two years with little prospect of significant recovery according to the head of Ford's operations there.
Avtovaz plans to spend RUB100bn (US$2.62bn) modernising technology and updating its model range in the next three years, OAO Avtovaz president Bo Andersson told a business forum.
AvtoVAZ says it is looking to the success of airline, Aeroflot, as a benchmark to improve its image and change consumer perception of its products.
AvtoVAZ CEO, Bo Andersson, concedes the scale of the redundancies he is implementing is "difficult," but points to already vastly improving productivity levels among the workforce at the automaker's Togliatti plant 520 miles South East of Moscow.
Russia is a tough environment for car companies. Right now, weak demand and possible future overcapacity for some of the big joint venture OEMs is a concern. And the depreciation of the rouble and associated uncertainties is a sizeable worry, also.
