St. Petersburg automotive industry set up a new record in September

According to Auto-Dealer SPb agency, in September Hyundai, General Motors, Nissan and Toyota plants in St. Petersburg produced 28,600 cars, which is 3.4 times more than a year ago. Thus, St. Petersburg automotive industry broke its own monthly production record. We should also mention that in September St. Petersburg plants produced at the average about 950 cars a day. During nine months of 2011 car plants in St. Petersburg assembled 167,100 passenger cars – that is 4 times more than a year ago. 

“September was the first month after May, when all car plants worked nonstop, - director of Auto-Dealer-SPb Mikhail Chaplygin says. – From May till August all enterprises had breaks for maintenance or corporate holidays, which affected the total car production dynamics. In Summer Hyundai, Nissan and Toyota plants recruited extra staff to increase production volume, which affected the September result. In October due to beginning of around-the-clock work at General Motors plant, we are expecting the next growth in car production.

The last month this year, when all St. Petersburg car plants worked nonstop was April, when 20,800 cars were produced in the city. In September this result increased by 37.5%. The largest growth was provided by the production of the new low-cost sedan Kia Rio at Hyundai plant, which was started in August.

In the III quarter car production in St. Petersburg exceeded results of the I and the II quarters of 2011. If from January till March 39,600 cars were produced in the city and from April till June car production was 59,000 cars, from July till September this number came up to 67,700 cars (or 40.5% of the total car production in St. Petersburg in 2011).

If Hyundai, Nissan and Toyota plants keep their current production volume and General Motors increases its production in October, 255,000 -260,000 cars can be assembled in St. Petersburg this year, Mikhail Chaplygin believes.

The share of St. Petersburg car industry in the total car production structure in Russia is continuing to grow. During nine months of the year it came up to 12.8%. Four car plants in St. Petersburg - Toyota, GM, Nissan and Hyundai – assemble 10 models – the Chevrolet Cruze, the Opel Astra, the Chevrolet Captiva, the Opel Antara, the Nissan Teana, the Nissan X-Trail, the Nissan Murano, the Toyota Camry, the Hyundai Solaris and the Kia Rio. Three of them – the Solaris, the Astra, the Cruze - were included in TOP-25 best selling models in Russia in September.
