great wall hover h3.jpgChinese car producer Great Wall could start the distribution of its vehicles in Russia independently from 2013. It means the loosing of exclusive rights of “Irito”, which was a distributor of Great Wall from 2005, but the term of agreement about exclusive distributor will be finished the next year. Car concern has already created its legal entity in Russia, which will distribute and conclude agreements with dealers in future, informed the newspaper “Kommersant”.

“Irito” was the first company, which started deliveries of Great Wall in Russia – the dealer became an exclusive distributor of Chinese brand in the Russian market in 2005. At the present time the main sales volume of “Irito” consists of SUVs Great Wall, besides, the company sells Chinese light trucks Foton and micro Peugeot and Citroen. “Irito” has three dealer centres in Moscow, show rooms in Kazan and Archangelsk. According to data of Association of European business, sales of Great Wall were 6,7 thousand vehicles in 2011 and they were 9,5 thousand vehicles with the growth 118% for nine months of this year. Price of SUVs Great Wall Hover H3 is 669-744 thousand Roubles, Great Wall Hover H5 – 699-855 thousand Roubles, Great Wall Wingle 3 – 540-559 thousand Roubles.

From 2009 “Irito” and Great Wall implement the joint assembly of vehicles in Moscow region, Gzhel, welding and painting of bodies are implemented in Circassia plant “Derways”. The capacity of welding shop “Derways” is up to 10 thousand bodies per a year.

The decision about the creation of office without partners in Russia was taken by the majority of Chinese companies – for example, Chery, Geely and Lifan. “Great Wall could resign agreements with many dealers independently with more convenient conditions and to increase the network in regions”, - supposes Michail Pack from “Aton”. He remarked that the reason of exclusive distribution of “Irito” stoppage could be low sales volumes but “it will be also very difficult to increase sales in Russia without Russian partner, with account that some of their models has the same price as Renault Duster and Kia Sportage”. Also, on opinion of analyst, Great Wall will meet difficulties with vehicles service anyway.
