The Ministry of Industry of the Russian Federation will sign a contract with the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi
On January 21, it was announced that a special investment contract (SPIC) had been signed between the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, which also includes AvtoVAZ. Official information in rather vague formulations says that “within the framework of this 10-year contract, AvtoVAZ will invest about 70 billion rubles, create 2,300 new jobs and, together with its partners in the Alliance, will expand the localization of materials, parts and components, introduce new technologies, develop scientific research activities in Russia and increase exports. " But the comment of the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov revealed some interesting details "It is assumed not only the localization of global automotive platforms, but also the production of the engine, including the gas engine option, as well as the production of a continuously variable transmission." Thus, the information that was previously heard that Jatco is planning to build a full-cycle plant in Russia and that a number of models of the Volga Automobile Plant will begin to assemble the Jatco JF015E with a CVT has received official confirmation.
