In the medium term, we expect to sell 3000 to 5000 UAZ SUVs throughout Latin America, increasing export volumes by 25-40% annually” – as stated by the head of automobile exports at UAZ: Andrei Dorofeev.

Ulyanovsk Car Factory currently has similar distribution contracts with local partners at Bolivia, Haiti, Nicaragua, Mexico and Paraguay.
