The deputy mayor of the capital spoke about the future products of the Moskvich . plant

The French company decided to leave the factory, leaving the entire workforce to the mercy of fate, that is, almost 4 thousand people in Moscow alone and about 40 thousand in other regions of Russia, engaged in, among other things, the supply of components for the factory of the capital. This was recalled by Moscow Deputy Mayor for Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov in an interview with the Moscow 24 TV channel.

Therefore, the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, immediately decided that this unique venture should be preserved and provided work for the entire workforce.

Maxim Liksutov shared his plans for the former Renault factory, where professional engineers and designers stayed, most of whom live in Moscow.

“The mayor decided that the factory should become a city company. Only the plant will stand in this spot. The plans are to bring it back to its historic name – the Moskvich factory; provide jobs for all those who worked there; to pay off back wages inherited, and by the end of the year to ensure the production of a new car, which will be produced jointly with KAMAZ and the NAMI Institute. We will find the necessary set of components,” said Maxim Liksutov about the outlook.

At the first stage, it is planned to assemble, in the future it is planned to localize production and all components as much as possible, and in the future – the production of electric vehicles.

The Moskvich plant can produce cars for taxis and carsharing. For example, the Moscow taxi and car-sharing market alone requires 30,000 to 40,000 new cars per year. And if they decide to start producing them in Moscow, the plant receives an order.

Currently, a working group has been formed with taxi aggregators to determine the technical aspects for a taxi car and carsharing in Moscow and the region. The instruction was given to exploit all the scientific possibilities of other metropolitan enterprises.
