KAMAZ increased the production of vehicles with a cabin Daimler


KAMAZ expects to sell in 2016 3200 vehicles with cabs Daimler - 2.3 times more than the last year. In an interview with the newspaper "Vedomosti" the General Director of KAMAZ, Sergey Kogogin, said about it, by explaining that before it was planned the sales at the level of 2400 units, but the dynamics of orders can count on higher volume. In addition it is expanded the model range: in 2015, Daimler cabs were installed at trunk trucks, this year dump trucks were added to them, then - chassis for machinery, explained earlier the representative of KAMAZ.

Now vehicles are equipped with cabins Daimler, which are manufactured by KAMAZ under license of its partner and a shareholder (at Daimler 15%). In future it will be used cabs Daimler, which will be produced by a new plant of the joint venture "Daimler KAMAZ Rus" in Tatarstan (the partners - 50%). Construction started in March of 2016, mass production will begin in 2019, said Sergei Kogogin. Power of enterprise will be 57 thousand skeletons of cabs of seven types per year (now - one type by license). They will be used as by a joint venture, so by KAMAZ. The final assembly of cabs will be implemented by each their own, explains Sergey Kogogin "Filling will be different. For example, we have to go in the middle price segment and we will do everything possible to reduce the cost of the cab for KAMAZ ". The investments in the project were not disclosed, but he said that they would work together with Daimler - 50/50. KAMAZ invests also funds that are raised by bond loans under the state guarantees, he said. For comparison, plant of cabs with a capacity of 15 thousand units per year, which was built in 2014 in Kaluga by Volvo Group, cost 90 million Euros.

According to Sergei Kogogin, by 2025 new cabin Daimler will be at 90% of KAMAZ trucks. In 2015, their share was almost 5%, the target for the year 2016 - 10%. "We need to change our cabin - he explains the interest of KAMAZ. - And we offered a partner: provide us with your latest developments - or we go our own way. "The benefit of Daimler – is to enhance the series and implementation of the commitments and agreements on industrial assembly, says the source. The question of deliveries of new cabs to other Mercedes-Benz plants was not discussed: "But in the long term, these cabins can be used to produce our trucks outside of Russia." KAMAZ plans to stop the current production of cabs Daimler, when it will produce 60-70 thousand units, it was produced about 5000.

Meanwhile, KAMAZ is not going to discontinue its own production of cabs. «I do not know the cheaper cabs in the world", - says Sergey Kogogin. But he did not rule out that "someday they will have to remove their production outside of Russia".

KAMAZ's strategy is justified, supposes the executive director of the agency "AUTOSTAT", Sergei Udalov. Cab – is one of the major and technologically advanced truck system and the project with Daimler will save time and money, while receiving a modern production, he says.
