As noted in the company, they regret removed Lanos.
“Lanos else could live – it was a good car in terms of price/quality. But the decision to cease production. Negotiate, to put in its place a more upgraded machine. However, it will appear not earlier than in two years,” – said Vasadze.
He stressed that the economically viable volume of production – at least 50 thousand cars a year.
“And this is possible when the domestic market will reach a size of not less than 300 thousand new passenger cars”, – said the head of UkrAVTO.
According to Vasadze, to put a new model on an existing modern plant, it is necessary to invest one billion dollars.
“It can be done, but this requires a corresponding volume of sales in the local market, and should not be an economic stress, which we observed every five years,” he said.
