    With a foot hold in Russia, Alfa may gain confidence to invest in other sectors they're involved in, from food processing to chemicals.

    Russian PM agrees program of car industry backing be continued till end of 2015

    ZHELEZNOGORSK /Kursk Region/, September 25. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has agreed to extend the program of car sector backing till the end of 2015. "I consider it possible and right to redistribute the funds /on development of economy in general and of car sector in particular/ and extend the program till the end of the year in order to support producers /on the one hand/ and provide citizens with an opportunity to acquire discounted cars on the other hand," Medvedev said at a meeting with Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov.

    Earlier decisions on a number of programs to support car sector were taken, among them subsidized auto lending, subsidized leasing and others, Medvedev said. "I have to admit that the programs are effective enough," he said, though adding that "for obvious reasons the funds are not without dimension and the program is almost over."

    He also asked Manturov what his suggestions regarding the future of those programs are. "I suggest that those supportive measures should be extended till the end of the year by allocating certain amount of funds from the fund you set up for backing the economy," the Minister said.

    That makes the most sense. While Russia has grown in import substitution and development of new technologies and what not; Russia has lost a ton of money and frankly, lost most in manufacturing PMI and industrial production due to the automotive industry. Russian automotive industry has fallen more than 30% across the board with plants either shutting down production or freezing production or reducing it significantly, with quite a bit of layoffs (in the thousands). And the automotive industry is one of the largest industrial industries in Russia, if not largest next to oil/gas, and defense. It employs roughly 600,000 people and accounted for 2% of the worlds automotive production. I imagine besides construction equipment and heavy industrial equipment, the automotive market must make 10% of Russias industrial production (great rough estimates, if someone can correct me with data).

    So such measures are needed. There may need to be many more measures to help the automotive market, especially in exporting.

    From RT.

    http://www.rt.com/business/317020-ford-trucks-russia-avtotor/

    The Avtotor plant in the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad is about to begin assembling Ford trucks. The vehicles will be adapted specifically for the Russian market and comply with European safety standards.

    "We are in a pre-production stage of the four most popular models – tow trucks and road construction machinery ... Actual production will depend on market conditions, as well as currency and inflation that have a direct impact on this," Avtotor told RIA Novosti.

    The 4,000 parts for each truck will come from Ford’s Otosan plant in Turkey. The complete knocked-down (CKD) assembly technology provides a high percentage of localization. CKD means importing parts to the country where the vehicle will be finally assembled; tariffs for parts are lower than for complete vehicles which makes the end product cheaper. Moreover, all vehicles will be equipped with Russian made options.

    Avtotor was founded in 1994 in Kaliningrad. It was the first plant in Russia to assemble foreign cars. Today it produces automobiles for BMW, Kia, Hyundai and Chevrolet. Last year the plant assembled 186,000 cars.

    Kaliningrad is an exclave city between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea. Its proximity to the EU has made it attractive for foreign auto makers to assemble cars there for the Russian market.

    The devaluing ruble has also made many producers turn to Russia. In August, the average salary across the country was 31,870 rubles (less than $500 a month), according to the official statistics agency Rosstat. Russian labor is now cheaper than in Romania and China.

    UAZ Patriot - universal offroad vehicle

    New Patriot modified on request by Russian army will be avialable for civilian market too. Patriot passed all Russian army tests and will soon enter full scale production said Artjom Zoltikov chief of department for cooperation with state structures on Interpolitex. Difference between civilian and military Patriot is in chasis, full steel forged rims, it lacks roof baggage holders, instead it will have holders for fuel, oil, water, weapons and hand tools (axes, shovels).



    Judging by informations given by central army region of Minstry of Defence they already use 30 UAZ-3163 vehicles which replaced older UAZ platforms. It includes Patriot-Okapi intelligence gathering platform (radar, TV channel, Thermal channel - http://www.gorizontrostov.ru/ru/uaz.html)



    New Patriot was modified that way so it can survive exploatation in most harash conditions including Arctic. Patriot can serve as platfom for wide range of weapons and systems, like command vehicle, intelligence gathering, ATGM launcher up to weight of 1t. When Compared to Hummer, Patriot offers better offroad capabilities and exploatation on bad roads. It will be used to fill gaps in roles made by Tigr platform, using it for tasks which for Tigr is an overkil (not literall translation here Very Happy). For now its not offered for export.

    essentially, the plant is just building various parts for engines. And many parts are to be exported to Turkey, Greece and others through Renault.

    Lada Ellada.  Ugly looking thing.

    I wouldn't say ugly, if anything it looks average, nothing really stands out, anyway it's an old design from 2012 if they do bring it to fruition it'll most likly be updated to XRAY desing.

    No idea really. I think that yes they are working on one as I recall reading on how Lada was investing R&D in electric automobiles. But for Russia, Electric is kinda useless besides a city vehicle. Outside a city and it becomes a problem. CNG automobile like the one being touted for Lada Vesta on the other hand makes so much sense.

    Yea, in Russia electric would be pretty useless, a hybrid would make more sense, any dev work on those??

    Actually the Russian gasoline price is close to the US price. It is Venezuela and Saudi Arabia that have super cheap subsidized prices.

    Why bother with hybrids when conventional fuels are cheap?

    Because they might not always be so cheap.

    Because there is money in alternative technologies that might end up even cheaper and more practical.

    Because new technology is transferable and can be used for previously unthought of applications.

    At high latitudes solar power might not be much use during winter, but during summer it is quite useful for a variety of applications... so on its own it might not be so great but in combination with perhaps wind generation it could be a fairly useful all year round source of free energy for some applications.
