Kaliningrad plant Avtotor plans to increase the production by 10-15% compared to the last year in 2018. It was reported to the agency "AUTOSTAT" by the press service of the enterprise, by noting that the production plans are built in conjunction with the main partners of Avtotor (BMW, Hyundai, KIA).

According to preliminary data, in 2017 more than 140 thousand cars left the conveyor of Avtotor, which is more by 40% than a year ago. During 2018, it is planned to update the model range for all brands produced by the company, as well as the start of production of new models.

In November, Avtotor launched the production of Hyundai HD78 trucks in full cycle mode. To implement the project, a new welding workshop has been prepared at the plant, the painting line and the assembly shop have been modernized. Additionally, the capacities created at Avtotor will allow the production of up to 6,000 cars per year in the full cycle mode with the subsequent increase in production volumes at the first stage of the project implementation. Joint investments in the project are estimated at $ 50 million. The project will permit to raise the level of localization of production at the plant "Avtotor" of commercial vehicles Hyundai, which is exceeding at the moment 35%.

In addition, in December of 2017, Avtotor started exporting of cars - the first shipment of the chassis of medium-duty commercial vehicles Hyundai HD78 was shipped to the Republic of Belarus.
