Opel Mokka production starts in Belarus

Zr.ru – Yunison has announced that the assembly production of Opel Mokka will start in the Belarussian capital Minsk. The components to be used in production will be brought from the South Korea factory of GM. The automobiles manufactured in Minsk will be sold in Belarus and Russia. The company officials have not disclosed the production volume.

As is known, Belarus is a member of the Customs Union, alongside Russia, Kazakhstan and Armenia. The models manufactured in Minsk will enter the Russian market customs-free. The GM representative, who spoke to Zr.ru news agency, has confirmed that Mokka will be sold via the dealers network in Russia. Mokka, which is the most popular Opel model in Russia, will be on the market before the end of the year, according to expectations.

Yunison, the manufacturer of brands such as: Geely, Samand and Zotye in Belarus, started the assembly production of several Peugeot models in 2015.

As one may remember, GM had closed its Russia factory and announced complete withdrawal from the Russian market, with the exception of few premium models.
