Fiat will drive past Russia.10 октября, 2021
Italian automaker Fiat, which half a century ago played a key role in the development of the domestic auto industry, today is not lucky on the expanses of the same seventh part of the sushi. Several of his projects are failed. Today, due to the fear of cannibalism, the French partner of the Alliance Stellantis will not give the Italians to enter the Russian market. But first things first.
Recall that the largest domestic giant AvtoVAZ appeared thanks to the active partnership and the participation of Italians in the project on the Volga with its Fiat-124 car.
Already in the newest time, the second time attempts were made by the Italian automaker once again go to Russia. But they were unsuccessful. So, S.
But in 2011, Sollers and Fiat dissolved partnerships and Ducato production ceased. Now Fiat Ducato comes to Russia from the Stellantis plant in the Spanish Seville. Also from 2010 to 2012, the Fiat Albea, Fiat Linea and Fiat Doblo Panorama were produced at the factory in Naberezhnye Chelny.
In turn, Fiat, stopping cooperation with the Russian group, at the beginning of the decade focused on the creation of the FCA Alliance (Fiat-Chrysler) in North America. Such work with the third largest automaker of the United States legendary Chrysler promised many interesting projects. Unlike Russia, where the main players of the automotive market have already been determined, and the possible prospects for Italians were extremely few. Our canal
At the beginning of this year, this Italian-American Union has become an integral part of the new Global Car Alliance Stellantis.
This was announced in January 2021. The Alliance turned out by the fusion of the French group
What are the consequences for Russia asked the emergence of this new alliance?
The thing is that PSA in Kaluga has a strongly incomprehensible automotive
Our channel said that actually from bankruptcy Kaluga project saves the Japanese automaker Mitsubishi, which has a stake in PSMA Rus and produces Outlander crossovers and Pajero Sport. The French with the enterprise greatly lost themselves, made a bet on the passenger cars of the S-class car — Peugeot 408 and Citroen C4. This class of cars has lost significantly in popularity in the Russian market because selling these cars is very, very low.
Seeing such a meager result, subsequently, French PSA had to look for free niches in the Russian market. A few years ago the rate was made on
And here the partners in Stellantis Italians came to the rescue. Next year, the Release of the Fiat Scudo van will begin at the capacity of Kaluga PSMA. Moreover, the van will be released exclusively for export.
This is an interesting turn in the plot of the development of the Russian auto industry of the Newest Time. None of the foreign automakers did not produce models from us exclusively for export. Recall that foreign automakers came to the Russian market solely for the sale of cars produced by them in the domestic Russian market. Moreover, at the beginning of the last decade, they were painted with rainbow prospects, they say, in 2020 the capacity of the market for new cars will be 3.5-4 million units and the Russian Federation will become the market number 1 in Europe, overtaking Germany. But did not come around, such a forecast will not be fulfilled and by 2025.
Today, the PSMA Rus plant does not supply the manufactured export technique. But all the same Stellantis puts an ambitious goal in front of the Kaluga company — to become the leading exporter of the Russian Federation
This year it is planned to begin exports of Peugeot, Citroen and Opel cars produced in Kaluga, and at the end of 2022. Italian Fiat Scudo will join them. In the plans to export in 2022 — 12,000 cars. Next, develop sales abroad to a level of 30,000 cars annually.
But still, the rate in export is done on Fiat Scudo.
The priority export market for Fiat Scudo will be
Exports should help the enterprise restore the load — for 2021-2022. It should grow 8 times, including at the expense of the Russian market, and not just exports.
Today, at a calculated capacity of 125 thousand cars for the current year, a production of 17,000 cars is scheduled.
