The UAZ started the export of vehicles to Costa Rica


The Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant began deliveries of UAZ vehicles "Patriot", UAZ "Pickup" and UAZ "Profi" to the Republic of Costa Rica. The first UAZ dealer center in Costa Rica is opened with the support of a local distributor, the company "Vehiculos Rusos de Centroamerica S.A.", informs the press service of UAZ.

As noted, the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant is the first of domestic automotive brands to begin deliveries of UAZ vehicles to the Republic of Costa Rica. Earlier UAZ cars were delivered in 2008, then a little over 30 cars were sent to Costa Rica. A distribution contract for the delivery of the first 50 vehicles to Costa Rica between UAZ and a local partner was signed at the end of 2017.

Given that the market share of off-road cars in Costa Rica is 40-45%, Russian UAZ cars have chances to occupy their niche in this market. At the moment, UAZ "Patriot" and UAZ "Pickup" cars with diesel engines in "Comfort" configuration, UAZ "Profi" in variants 4x4 and 4x2 with gasoline engine and with HBO are sent to Costa Rica. All cars of these complete sets are equipped with active and passive safety systems, a combination of instruments with an on-board computer function, a modern audio system, a new climate system, a rear-view camera,

According to Andrei Dorofeev, UAZ car export director, Costa Rica is not the largest market in Central America for UAZ volumes, but shipments to this region can grow to 500-700 cars per year, in case the distribution of the local partner is successfully developed also in the neighboring countries, including Guatemala, Panama and El Salvador. To date, the portfolio of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant also has concluded distribution agreements with partners in Bolivia, Haiti, Nicaragua, Mexico, Paraguay, Ecuador, and Honduras. One-time deliveries to state customers on the Island of Freedom are also being carried out. In the coming months, UAZ plans to begin deliveries to Peru and Argentina, and it will also begin certification of its SUVs in Chile.
