South Korea will continue the deliveries of cars to Russia


Korean cars, along with household appliances and electronics, are not subject to sanctions, so Hyundai, Kia and Genesis are very likely to be among those who will not stop their business in Russia. According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, South Korea is seeking an exemption from the FDPR (Foreign Direct Product Rule), which requires a US government license if a company manufactures products abroad using American technology and delivers to Russia.

The U.S. Department of Commerce confirmed to the South Korean side that while South Korean-made cars, electronics, household appliances and other consumer products "are subject to the FDPR, in principle they are exceptions" to the new rules, but provided that they are not supplied to the military needs of the Russian Federation. According to the data of the Association of European Businesses, in 2021, 377,612 cars of Korean brands (Kia, Hyundai and Genesis) were sold in Russia, which accounted for 22.6% of the volume of the Russian car market. Recall that Hyundai-Kia currently produces its bestsellers Hyundai Creta and Solaris, as well as Kia Rio and Rio X at its own plant in St. Petersburg. As previously reported by AUTOSTAT, since March 1st, this enterprise has been idle due to a shortage of components due to ongoing global logistical disruptions in the supply of auto components and plans to resume the production on March 9th. The remaining models of Hyundai, Kia and Genesis are produced by contract assembly at the Kaliningrad plant "Avtotor", which today continues their production.

Andrey Olkhovsky, General Director of AVTODOM Group, notes that Korean, like Chinese manufacturers, are the most loyal - they do not build emotional relationships in business and do not really like hesitation in their projects. Therefore, if they feel a threat to the business, then the exit from retail will be translational.
