Toyota plant in St. Petersburg suspended the production from March 28th to April 5th, 2020 due to a decree of the President of the Russian Federation on the announcement of a non-working week and an unfavorable epidemiological situation in the country. Recall, at the moment, the company produces Toyota Camry business sedan and Toyota RAV4 crossover.

For the same reason, Nissan suspended the production of cars at a plant in St. Petersburg from March 30th to April 5th. These days are considered as paid weekends for employees, a company spokesman said. Previously, the Nissan plant also announced the transition to one-shift work due to lower demand in the Russian car market. At the same time, the company notes that the Russian market remains a priority for Nissan, and the plant’s capabilities will allow it to return to the two-shift schedule as soon as the market situation improves. Currently, the company produces Nissan Qashqai, X-Trail and Murano crossovers.

In addition, Renault suspended the production of cars from March 30th to April 5th at its plant in Moscow in connection with the decree of the President of the Russian Federation on the announcement of a non-working week in the country. Employees of Renault Russia offices also stop the work during this period; these days are considered as paid holidays for employees. At the Renault plant in Moscow, there are produced Renault Duster, Kaptur and Arkana crossovers, and the contracted assembly of Nissan Terrano is implemented.

As previously reported, for the same reason, Russian Hyundai plants, enterprises of the Sollers group, Kaliningrad Avtotor, GAZ Group, KAMAZ and AVTOVAZ also suspended the production of cars. Also, amid the situation with coronavirus, several car makers in Russia announced downtime. Volkswagen plants in Kaluga (the production of Tiguan, Polo and Skoda Rapid) and in Nizhny Novgorod (contact assembly of Skoda Octavia, Kodiaq and Karoq) went idle from March 30th to April 10th. PSA Group will suspend the operation of the plant in the Kaluga region from April 1st to 3rd due to interruptions in supplies against the background of the coronavirus.
