According to the decree of the President of the Russian Federation, Mr. Putin, on March 25th, 2020, it was announced that Russia would have non-working days at all enterprises of the Sollers group (UAZ, ZMZ, Ford Sollers in Yelabuga, Mazda Sollers in Vladivostok), a special regime was also introduced from March 28th to April 5th.

At this time, the production and shipment of cars, the reception of components and other production activities not related to life support and the maintenance of the accident-free state of the plants will be suspended. For employees of enterprises, except for duty personnel, a non-working week has been announced with the preservation of wages, the Sollers press service reported.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, for the first two months of 2020, Sollers group, which represents UAZ and Ford brands, sold 5,497 UAZ and Ford Transit vehicles (-4.7%). As a result, Sollers' share in the Russian market was 2.5% versus 2.6% a year before, according to AEB. So, sales of UAZ cars fell by 1% and reached 4,551 units in January-February. The flagship SUV UAZ Patriot remains the bestseller of the brand.

Sales of light commercial vehicles of the Ford Transit family in the reporting period reached 946 vehicles (-15.5%). As a result, Ford Transit remains the market leader among light commercial vehicles of foreign brands. Recall that in June of 2019, Sollers and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation signed a special investment contract for the development of UAZ and Ford Transit vehicles at the production sites of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant and Ford Sollers Yelabuga.

The main objective of the project is the implementation by Sollers of a long-term leadership strategy in the light commercial vehicles segment by launching of a new UAZ model range on the basis of a single platform, the development of new technologies, including gas motor vehicles, built-in telematics systems and “connected car” services, as well as ADAS systems.

In addition, the project presumes the implementation of synergies between UAZ and Ford Transit lineups in terms of localization of key components and assemblies, as well as the development of car distribution and market promotion of a full range of light commercial vehicles in all price segments.
