It's official dear supermini fans, the Opel Corsa will be assembled in Belarus starting next year at a factory belonging to JV Unison JSC. The models built there will be sold in Russian Customs Union (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan).
Since the Corsa is going to receive a major facelift soon, which could mean a Corsa Classic model with no upgrades is planned.

The components will arrive at the factory in Semi Knocked Down kits from Eisenach/Germany (three-door) and Zaragoza/Spain (five-door) to be completed in Belarus. The plan is to assemble 7000 units in the first year of production.

„We are now producing Corsas in Belarus according to our guiding principle – build where we sell. On top of that the delivery of assembly kits to an expanding market means more business for our facilities in Eisenach and Zaragoza”, says Opel Vice President Manufacturing Europe, Peter Thom, being pleased about the agreement with UNISON.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
