As TASS reports, the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region, Gleb Nikitin, said that after the fall in the auto production index in 2022, the indicator began to grow and, based on the results of nine months of this year, increased by 10%.
— There is phenomenal growth in buses. We are one of the main manufacturers of luxury buses and public transport,” he noted.
In addition, the governor emphasized that if previously the auto industry was highly dependent “on the market situation, on various specific suppliers,” today manufacturers have “more choices, options and opportunities.”
“We are now very actively working on expanding the line, we hope that in the near future we will be able to return to the Nizhny Novgorod region the production of passenger cars under our own brands,” Nikitin said.
Let us remind you that the Gorky Automobile Plant, which has been producing Volgas since 1956, operates in the Nizhny Novgorod region.
