By Graeme Roberts | 5 September 2011

GM Russia and CIS and Asia AVTO have agreed a deal to assemble more Chevrolet models in Kazakhstan.

Six Chevrolet models are currently produced at Asia AVTO's plant in Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, Kazakhstan's largest passenger car manufacturer will begin regular production of three new models: the Cruze hatchback, updated Captiva and seven-seat Orlando.

The aim is to increase annual production of Chevrolet vehicles in Kazakhstan to 10,000 units.

Chevrolet sales in Kazakhstan increased 2.3 times in January-July.
