SsangYong from Sollers - three years of rapid sales growth

On the 22nd of December 2005 the serial production of the South Korean cars SsangYong started at the industrial site of Sollers in Naberezhnye Chelny. For three years, that company Sollers has been an official distributor of SsangYong in Russia, more than 31,500 Russian automobilists have become owners of SUVs of this brand.
So, in 2006 4,056 cars were sold, in 2007 - 11,281 units (a gain is 178 %), the expected gain of 2008 will make 59 % and it means that 18,000 SsangYongs SUVs will find their owners this year. Thus, in 2008 Sollers will sell more South Korean off-road cars than for both previous years.
The analysts of AUTOSTAT remark that till 2005 SsangYongs SUVs were imported single-piece and more often second-hand or through informal dealers. The original design and small popularity of the brand could not resist even to the fact that licensed components from Mercedes-Benz were equipped while manufacturing cars. However since that moment the Sollers company has begun to sell SsangYongs cars, there has been significant success in promotion of South Korean SUVs on the Russian market. The full-scale manufacture of Rexton and Kyron cars at the plant "ZMA" has allowed to reduce their price greatly and to offer the Russian buyers a wide range of frame SUVs versions with diesel and gasoline engines. Produced in Naberezhnye Chelny Rexton and Kyron are the most popular models of the brand in Russia. So, only the share of Kyron is about 65 % from the total sales volume of SsangYong on the Russian market.
Today the model line of SsangYong in Russia comprise five models: these are Rexton, Kyron and Actyon SUVs, Actyon Sports pickup and also seven-seater minivan Rodius.
It is necessary to add that dealer network of SsangYong in Russia totals over 115 outlets which offer a full spectrum of services in sale and service of SsangYongs SUVs.
