The lifelessness of the enterprise confirms the data that the plant is now idle
Autonews correspondent went to St. Petersburg to the former Nissan plant to assess with his own eyes the situation at the plant site at the moment. On the territory of the plant he managed to find several hundred new cars (Chery Tiggo 7 Pro) and failed to notice people.
The cars had no radiator grilles or logos. Considering that the official Tiggo 7 Pro arrives in Russia fully assembled, stored on the territory of the car – precisely local assembly. They will go on sale under the XCITE brand and, according to numerous photographic evidence published earlier, will be called XCITE X-Cross 7.
If there are a lot of cars in the area, then there are people – No. «It seems that the plant, at least at the moment, is in idle mode, although its entire territory has been cleared of snow», & ;ndash; writes the correspondent. It was previously reported that at the beginning of February the enterprise will go into idle time.
The journalist caught another interesting moment. Due to American sanctions «AvtoVAZ» distanced himself from the project – so much so that the new XCITE brand was represented by the enterprise itself, which is now called «Avtozavod St. Petersburg». But at the same time, the name “Lada St. Petersburg” in large letters still appears on the facade of the building. and a large AvtoVAZ logo.
