Chevrolet Niva production has started in Kazakhstan

Autostat – The serial production of Chevrolet Niva has started at SaryarkaAutoProm plant in the city of Kostanay, using car assembly sets delivered from GM-AVTOVAZ in Tolyatti.

As is known, Kazakhstan is one of the most significant export markets for GM-AVTOVAZ.

GM-AVTOVAZ has exported 1555 Chevrolet Niva SUVs in 2016, which is equivalent to a 34.5% year-on-year decline. “The shrinkage in export volumes is due to the fall in customer spending in Kazakhstan, which was the main export market in 2015. The implementation of regulatory and legal acts related to the payment of utilisation and registration fees prior to the release of cars for sale has caused the shrinkage, bringing extra costs for customers” – as stated by the company press-office.
