Mazda to Produce Cars in Russia with Sollers
text size: A- A+
Together with Sollers, one of Russia’s top automotive companies, the Japanese carmaker wants to build a production site in Vladivostok, in Russia’s Far Eastern Federal District. This will allow Mazda to offer multiple models directly on the Russian market.
Russia is Mazda’s second largest European marker and has the potential to develop even further. In the January - September 2011 period, Mazda sold around 28,000 vehicles in the country, a figure that can be translated into a 77 percent increase compared to the one posted last year.
The move is part of a bigger plan, which will see Mazda make efforts to boost its sales on emerging markets worldwide.
