The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation is considering the possibility of organizing in the country the production of ESP systems responsible for stabilizing the car, Deputy Minister Vasily Shpak said.

He said that Russian enterprises have already managed to replace imports of electronic control units, partially sensors and harness products for the automotive industry. A plant for the production of anti-lock braking systems (ABS) is already being launched in Kostroma, and serial deliveries to Russian automakers will begin on July 1.

Recall that AVTOVAZ faced a shortage of ABS and ESP systems last year. Subsequently, the authorities decided to introduce a simplified technical regulation, which allowed for the absence of these systems in the produced car in order to prevent the suspension of conveyors.


ESP (Electronic Stability Program) is an electronic stabilization system. It is also called the stability control system or the anti-skid system.

ESP monitors the vehicle’s lateral dynamics and assists the driver in critical situations, i.e. prevents the vehicle from skidding and side-slip if it occurs, and also helps to maintain the trajectory of movement and stabilize the vehicle’s position during maneuvers at high speed or slippery surfaces.
