KamAZ: the problem of localizing components has no solution, since the price of the finished product abroad is equal to the price of metal in Russia

Under such conditions, localization makes no sense

After the introduction of large-scale sanctions in 2022, KamAZ thoroughly began localizing its component base, and made significant progress in this matter. However, localization of a number of components makes no sense: for the price of bare metal in Russia, you can buy a finished product abroad. The Deputy General Director of KAMAZ spoke about this — Director for  Development Irek Gumerov within the framework of the recently held St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

«We do have a number of localized parts for mechanical parts. But I can say that today our metal price — at the price of the finished product there, [abroad]. There is no need for higher mathematics, the problem does not have a solution. If input materials are more expensive than the finished product, how to localize? This is obvious, and this needs to be decided», — told by Irek Gumerov.

The Skoda Octavia fell in price by 210 thousand rubles, and the Mitsubishi Outlander by 200 thousand rubles. Dealers have adjusted prices for “parallel” cars
