According to the results of the first half of 2020, Kaliningrad Avtotor plant produced 71 thousand cars, which is lower by 37.1% than the figure for the same period of the previous year. This was reported to the Interfax news agency by the company's press service, noting that the coronavirus pandemic was the main reason for the decline in production. “At the same time, this volume of released cars corresponds to the previously predicted level of production decline in general for 2020 - about 40%,” - according to Avtotor. In connection with a significant production reduction, the company developed and implemented measures aimed, first of all, at retaining personnel, their wages, as well as ensuring estimated performance indicators at the plant, the Finmarket agency writes. Currently, the plant produces cars under the brands KIA, Hyundai and BMW.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, in January of 2020, Avtotor launched the production of new compact crossover KIA Seltos, and in April the company began the production of this model in a full cycle. For the production of KIA Seltos, a welding line was put into operation, equipped with advanced equipment, including modern machine tools with program control, providing additional control of the quality of welding, which can improve significantly the accuracy of operations. The new welding line allows the production of up to 30 thousand bodies per a year. Over a hundred people work there. And the total cost of investments in the installation and commissioning of equipment were about 20 million Euros. In addition, at the end of April Avtotor began the assembly of the new BMW X6 crossover, which became the eighth model of a Kaliningrad-made brand. And in May, the company launched the release of a new KIA XCeed coupe-crossover.
