The Car Industry: A New Impetus
At Sollers, we are ready to work on projects focusing on critical components which are not produced in Russia. And we are ready to do this not only for ourselves, but for the entire industry. This is fundamentally important – cooperation between all automotive manufacturers in the interests of effective localization and deriving the greatest possible benefit from the scale effect

Major barriers to trading in the biggest and most important markets continue to exist. There are import duties, which make exports uncompetitive. Regardless of anything, places we have traditionally exported to include the CIS, some countries in Southeast Asia, countries in Africa, and some countries in Latin America. In general, trade barriers prevent us from creating a large-scale export strategy. They vary from country to country, but regardless, they are significant

The main problem our industry has is that the level of localization overall is low... For new products, we need to create a new component industry. It is good that many component manufacturers left.

The sanctions storm which the automotive industry is going through is completely unprecedented. The crises of 2009 and 2014 were fundamentally different. Those were merely about a contraction of the market due to a crisis of liquidity, devaluation, and a subsequent increase in car prices. Now we are facing a fundamental rethinking of the main economic growth model for the industry. For the past 15 years, the industry was built using international technology... Today, there are no players: some have left already, and others will do so soon in all likelihood. And we are faced with the challenge of building an entirely different industry capable of withstanding any issues related to external risks – not just economic ones, and probably not even economic in essence
