China’s Lifan Industry has begun construction of a greenfield plant in Lipetsk, central Russia, almost a year after signing an agreement.

Lifan has operated in Russia since 2007 and hopes local production will help it avoid some of the currency volatility seen in the last two years.

The plant will have annual capacity of 60,000 units and is expected to begin operations in 2017.

It will be Chongqing based Lifan’s sixth overseas plant.
