Car plant “AMUR” will distribute Chinese trucks FAW


Chinese car producer FAW will try again to come in the Russian market of commercial vehicles. Company found a new partner in Russia – plant “AMUR”, subsidiary of which will distribute FAW vehicles.

As «РBК daily» wrote, representation of FAW corporation in Russia – “FAW – Eastern Europe” and Ural company “Russian special vehicles” (RSV, subsidiary of plant “AMUR”) signed an agreement, according to which RSV becomes an exclusive distributor of light commercial vehicles FAW in the Russian market. RSV will distribute FAW models with mass up to 6 tonnes: CA1031, CA1041, CA1047 and also their modifications. “We have a task to create a wide “service and dealer” network the next year” – explained in RSV.

Chinese FAW has come to Russia in the spring of 2007 by creating the subsidiary “FAW – Eastern Europe”. This is the second by size producer in Chinese market that produces trucks, buses, light commercial vehicles and passenger cars. When FAW stopped collaboration with “Irito” company in 2008, Chinese producer didn’t have a distributor in Russia. In 2010 company sold about 1 thousand of trucks in the Russian market and it sold only construction FAW vehicles this year.

Chinese company expects to improve its business in Russia with assistance of a new partner. By the words of director of Moscow branch of RSV, Aleksey Sorokin, there will be involved about 50 dealers the next year. “The preliminary negotiations are hold, the main struggle will be for Moscow region and St. Petersburg”, - he said. Representatives of RSV informed that the first sales will be in Moscow at the end of this year. RSV plans to sell only model FAW CA1041 till April of the previous year. Therewith, a delivery volume of these vehicles must be about hundred units per a month since February.

“The necessity of this type of vehicles in Russia is high. Vehicles FAW could compete with “GAZel”. Chinese Foton, BAW and Korean Hyundai”, - supposes the independent expert of Chinese vehicles, Evgenii Mezhov. On his opinion, perspectives of FAW vehicles in the Russian market will be clear by the end of 2012, when RSV would adjust a service and provide the delivery of spare parts. “Also the key factor is a price”, - underlined Mr. Mezhov. As Aleksey Sorokin informed, the simplest model of FAW commercial vehicle will cost from 630 thousand Roubles that is more expensive than “GAZel” but cheaper than Foton.
