“The most modern” claims administration “Stavropol-Avto”, automobile plant in Russia, could not obtain contracts for Assembly of Chinese cars Lifan and Chery, which last year released “Derways”. However, production on “Stavropol-Auto” while canning not planning on going negotiations “with several partners,” including “with our Chinese neighbours.”

Last year Lifan and Chery decided not to renew the contract for the Assembly of cars “Derways”, which was established a complete production cycle. When, in December , the Investigative Committee opened a criminal case against AK “Derways” about tax evasion in the amount of 320 million rubles, it became clear that the Chinese plant is certainly not back, although Vyacheslav Galuzinskaya, Deputy General Director of “Lifan motors Rus”informed us that a formal claim of SK in no way can interfere with the production of machines, since the equipment and kits “Derways” you don’t belong, even customs clearance kits in 2018 Lifan began to make themselves.

On where he will assemble Lifan, we will tell in the near future, check is that it is the plant on the territory of Russia, not in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan or Armenia, that is, in the member state of the Customs Union of the EEU. As for Chery, we reported that this brand will gather at “Avtotor”. According to the site Kolesa.ru the official launch may happen in the coming months, and is now in full swing makeready. Most likely, the launch will be timed to be received “Avtotor” Special investment contract. The document is submitted for approval to the Ministry of industry and trade: in Kaliningrad was expecting its approval in February.

Meanwhile, prior to the conclusion of treaties about building new platforms, and Lifan, and Chery have been in talks with enterprise “Stavropol-Auto”. Recall that it was built quite recently: in the register of subjects of small and medium enterprises the company is on 1 August 2016 as a “small business”, and from December 2017, the plant began producing good friends with the Russian buyer of the SUV, Great Wall H3 and H5 branded DW Hower. The construction of the plant began in 2013 with the mediation of the “Moscow industrial Bank” on a site area of 207 Hectares, decorated in the property “Stavropol-Auto” with the mediation of the Government of Stavropol territory. The General designer was “Inprotekh” (Nevinnomyssk), designer of major buildings, a Korean company, DongSung, a supplier of equipment for painting and Assembly CNTUS again from Korea. According to our data, the plant has collected about 2400 sets, and then the Hower DW project, initiated by the company “China automarket” was folded in the absence of additional funding. New customers at “Stavropol-Auto” has not yet appeared.

At the level of the founders of the “Stavropol-Auto” detect my connection “Derways”. It is possible, that it repels those who have already received experience with the company in Cherkessk, and those who are familiar with the situation. Let’s “get on the genealogical tree” of the founders, will help us in this websites for verification of contractors list-org.com and kartoteka.ru.

So, the founders of “Stavropol-Auto” to date, the number of OOO “oak” and the Trees he Aubakirovich. The share of Wood M. A. small, only 0.001% and is suspicious – why should she? Passing by the branch of LLC “UAC” (United automobile company), we find that here the Tree Muhadins of Aubakirovich share of 0.001%, despite the fact that the rest of OOO “Regional company land”. It is unlikely that you will be surprised to know that “a Regional land of the Trees he Aubakirovich again listed in the founders, but (attention!) already with a share of 50%. That is, in fact, “Stavropol-the Car” he owns not the 0.001% of “Stavropol-Auto”, “50% plus”, that is, he has control over the plant. The name of the Trees in the Caucasus – a well-known, influential clan, however, in recent years, their position loses: Vyacheslav Trees representing Karachaevo-Cherkessia in the Federation Council, last year was arrested, however, on March 1 in connection with the case Arshakovich released.

01

And now with AK “Derways”? And President of Trees Hadji Murat Ademovic, he is also the founder with a share of 44%. 5% – for Alexander Romanov, the rest with “SBC Resources”. In turn, the “SBK Resource” is 99% of “SBK Project”, which is 100% (net of 0.0002%) – OOO “Sberbank Capital”. In turn, the founder of OOO “Sberbank Capital” share 100% the number of Sberbank – the one where the President and the Chairman of the Board of the notorious Gref German Oskarovich. Well, it is if you believe list-org.com and analogues.

In General, all is vague and doubtful, and certainly investors are not attracted. But all the rest of the picture describes an amusing typo made on the official website of the Investigative Committee in Karachay-Cherkessia in the title of one of the news: “Investigative Committee in Karachay-Cherkessia started checking on the fact of avalanches causing the suffered tourists”. Oh, Yes, I see tourists, I mean, investors who want to be victims?..

Back to the failure of Lifan and Chery to cooperate with the “Stavropol-Auto”. If we leave aside the “Caucasian” the question remains Speke. As reported by us at the time sources at Chery, it was the prospect of the imminent receipt of Specinvtehnica at “Avtotor” made representatives of the Chinese company to begin working with a plant in Kaliningrad. However, it has not lost it Chery, selecting “Avtotor” and not “Stavropol-Auto”?

As tell our sources, the application for SPIK “Avtotor” filed involving Chery last year: Chery appears in documents as an investor. Spetsinvestproject not yet approved, and for the time that he is on coordination, the Government has ruled out the possibility of filing a group application. However, it is unlikely that the tightness is due to this. By the way, according to our sources, “Autotor” encouraged Chery on a very large investment, so large that the Chinese were unpleasantly surprised. At the same time, as the experience of the joint far Eastern factory Mazda Sollers, signed Speke in September 2016, you can do quite a reasonable amount of 2.8 billion rubles. For comparison, the AVTOVAZ “satellites” under the contract invests 70 billion rubles Kaluga enterprise of Volkswagen alone — all 40 billion…

It is obvious that the absence of Speke and, as a consequence, industrial subsidies from the Government of the Russian Federation (on the website of the Ministry of industry and trade support measures designated as “financial support in the form of benefits for taxes and duties in accordance with the legislation on taxes and fees”) not allow “Stavropol-Auto” to offer customers reasonable price for the car. Meanwhile, the situation when an entity with an annual capacity of 100 thousand cars, with the ability to build full-cycle close to CKD-4 (body boiled whole, and not of willing bottoms and sidewalls), modern Korean painting equipment, areas under presses, idle probably wrong.

Yes, the draft “China automarket” on the resurrection of SUVs Great Wall branded DW Hower proved to be unsustainable. Yes, to build a plant, apparently, you had to “Special economic zone” or “priority development areas” and not in the vicinity of Stavropol, which is not yet a SEZ and not THOR. It is encouraging, however, that management “Stavropol-Auto” is in no hurry to suspend production. One of our senior speakers at the factory reported that “the equipment is working and maintained; our technicians are on the ground watching this, it’s ready for work tomorrow“. Well, it is small, it remains only to find a customer.

According to our data, the administration of “Stavropol-Auto” plans to ask the companies that have not localized production in Russia. We are talking at least about Subaru and Suzuki. We took prompt review of these companies on possible cooperation with “Stavropol-Auto”. The press service of Subaru announced that the Japanese do not cling factor “of the Japanese Assembly”, which, however, for a certain fraction of buyers of the brand remains important. On the contrary, the headquarters of the Subaru will be ready to give the go-ahead to “miscalculation” of possible options of containment, as soon as the total volume of the Russian sales of the brand will be over 20 thousand. we will Remind, it is already in a record for the market of 2012 when question about the Russian Assembly was really on the agenda. If sales once again reached this mark, the first on the Russian pipeline will rise Forester – it now accounts for more than 60% of brand sales. However, sales have gone up, the machines should be cheaper that can give the Russian Assembly in the enterprise with the current Spike, and this requires investment. In General, while Subaru goes in a circle.

The press service of Suzuki gave a laconic reply on the question of possible cooperation with “Stavropol-Auto”: Suzuki Motor Rus as the official distributor of Suzuki Motor Corporation in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, issues of such strategic importance alone does not solve. Therefore, if the enterprise Stavropol-Car approached us with a proposal about the beginning of localization of production, we certainly would have sent a request to headquarters for clarification. It is a question of global importance for Suzuki, so on places it is not solved. By the way, Suzuki have own factory in Hungary, where in Russia are Vitara and SX4, however, the volume of our sales of small, 4192 PCs and PCs 1358 2018 respectively, so that if the Hungarian plant will be missing the Russian copies, nothing will happen. Remember, by the way that Suzuki was going to build its own plant in Russia, and even for some time kept it in.

Jaguar Land Rover said that “at this stage, the Assembly is not economically justified”. Meanwhile, it’s worth remembering last year’s interview with the General Director of the Russian branch of JLR Vyacheslav Kuzakova. A year ago, the Manager told us: “Assembly in Russia, we have serious economic advantages not give. However, this does not mean that in a year or two we will return to this issue, we have regular contact with the relevant structures of the Russian Government and potential industrial partners”.

Actually, the foregoing does not mean that Suzuki, Subaru or even Jaguar Land Rover comes to “Stavropol-Auto”, because the volume of investments in the own plant is far higher than in the adaptation process on the ready-made “Stavropol-Auto”. Another thing that they should do in the headquarters, and most likely is represented by the Chinese.

Probably for this reason the administration of “Stavropol-Auto” equips delegation at the motor show in Shanghai, which will open in the second half of April (journalistic days – 16th and 17th), in this sense, it is not excluded that in the foreseeable future the Russian market will be some new Chinese brand, for example, Baojun, or return are already known, for example, Haima. Interestingly, Haima even have a valid transport vehicle type approval, issued on December 27, 2017 with period of validity until 15 November 2019, the model M3. We are talking about a sample of Chinese Assembly, however, the mere presence of certificate (mark never returned to the market with a certified model) may indicate that interest in Russia Haima the same is not extinguished.

Quick release bonnet and rear from talking about sports the purpose of the prototype. Upon closer inspection, also found the skeleton in the cabin and racing seats.

Unusual Dacia Duster first generation (and even previous) recently spotted by the photographers near the Arctic circle. The engineers of Renault Sport Department has tested this unit on one of the frozen lakes. The car is noteworthy in many respects. First, it is fully electric. Secondly, racing and three-door (or rather two, because the back opens with no wing, and a body section).

On the front of the prototype mounted Brembo brake calipers, rear — Renault Alpine.

Explanation the prototype, there are several. First: experts Dacia and Renault Duster use this as a prototype for testing some solutions racing all-wheel drive electric vehicle. This brings to mind the French championship races on ice Andros Trophy, which was made by Dacia. Interestingly, it even was used adapted ice track compact MPV Lodgy. However, the next racing partner apparatus can be battery-operated Duster.

In the championship, the Andros Trophy for several years there is an electric class. It uses the same rear-wheel drive 122-horsepower electric company Exagon engineering (pictured). In 2020 there should appear in its own category electric poluprovodnikov, reminds the edition Autoevolution.

It is not known yet what form the electric apparatus will be presented. But at least for the Duster wouldn’t be the first insight into the Motorsport, including a thorough processing of the entire structure. Suffice it to recall the mid-engined 850-horsepower rally car Duster No Limit with barbastelle from the Nissan GT-R, created several years ago for pikes Peak.

Indirectly, the prototype says about another. Brand Dacia, with the assistance of its partners, the group gains experience with electric drive. So, in the future can to please buyers of any serial electric vehicles. On this scenario, that is, the conversion of electric vehicles from expensive products in bulk and more affordable, and talk to other brands of the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. And even show you an example of conceptsthat hold the course. So in a perspective of road Duster on batteries may not be such a fantasy.

The pictures in the news car shows in the snow, but she was taken out and on the ice. The tires were studded.

There is an alternative explanation for the experiment. In the body of the Duster can hide units future electric SUV brand Alpine. Then we are not talking about budget machines, and on their direct opposites — prestigious models on batteries. In this case, Duster paves the way rival such SUVs as the Mercedes-Benz EQC, I Jaguar-Pace and Audi e-tron.

The agreement, which Toyota and Suzuki was signed in the spring of 2018, was quite abstract. Now partners have provided “specific details of cooperation,” of the eight points. Perhaps the biggest news is that Toyota has allowed Suzuki to clone the crossover RAV4 and wagon Corolla Touring Sports for the European market. And to produce twins with nameplates Suzuki will Toyota. It is only on the hybrid versions, since Suzuki is allowed globally to use the power plant to the THS (Toyota Hybrid System).

Benzoelektrosila wagon Corolla Touring Sports as a hatchback, comes in two types: aspirated 1.8 (122 HP) and 2.0 (180 HP). Actuator — front or full, CVT uncontested.

Suzuki clear benefits, what about Toyota? It needs support in the markets of India and Africa. So the sedan Suzuki Ciaz compact MPV Ertiga, hatch Baleno and SUV Vitara Brezza transformirovalsya model Toyota directly on the factory Suzuki. But Suzuki engines for the small car will be produced in Poland at the facilities of Toyota. Partners assert that “continue to fairly and freely compete with each other”. The rivalry did not prevent them to work together to develop the MPV C-segment and 2022-go to run crossover Vitara Brezza on the conveyor Indian plant Toyota Kirloskar Motor.
