Kryshkin, project manager of the Russian car factory “Moscovich”: If we consider the current situation of Russian car manufacturers,Restarting production means not only a historic moment, but also the return of car manufacturing in Russia.
Domestic consumers may not be familiar with Muscovites,This factory was established in 1930 as a car factory in the former Soviet Unionoccupied the leading position in the Russian car industry in the 1970s and 1980s, and was once considered the flagship of the Soviet car manufacturing industry.
However, due to poor management, at the beginning of the 21st century, it was acquired by Renault of France, and the factory’s production line stopped producing “Moskovitch” brand cars since then. In May this year, Renault Motors pulled back from the Russian market.The factory was transferred to the Ministry of the City of Moscow and was later renamed the “Moskovitch” car factory..
