The Moskvich Automobile Plant proposed to the Ministry of Industry and Trade to reinvest the recycling fee in the development of new cars. This was announced on February 27 by Tatyana Redko, Director for Government Relations and Corporate Relations.
“In this case, my appeal was sent to the Ministry of Industry and Trade to consider the possibility of holding an additional meeting, because the issue of 100% compensation for scrap is important, including for our company, to cover the shortage of resources. We offer a fairly new mechanism related to the possibility of reinvesting waste collection into production within the framework of a new model range,” she said during parliamentary hearings in the Federation Council.
Earlier, on February 16, it became known that the new Moskvich 3 crossovers began to arrive at official dealers of the brand in the regions of Russia. In addition to Moscow and St. Petersburg, the novelty of the domestic auto industry will appear at car dealers in Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Ufa, Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Izhevsk, Kemerovo and Naberezhnye Chelny.
Prior to that, on February 15, it was announced that the Moskvich automobile plant plans to double the output of manufactured cars in 2024. The brand’s dealer network includes 52 car dealerships in 23 cities of Russia.
The day before, it became known that Moskvich would soon deliver 3,000 Moskvich 3 cars throughout the country to car sharing and taxi companies. This year, Moskvich plans to produce 50,000 vehicles, including 10,000 with an electric motor.
On February 7, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced that the Russian platform for the production of electric vehicles at the Moskvich plant was planned to be completed in two years. This will allow us to start producing our own cars with most of the components made in Russia.
