Avtovaz will reduce the speed of its assembly lines


 

Autostat.- Avtovaz plans to reduce the speed of a number of assembly lines on the conveyor of its Togliatti plant as of mid-September. Vedomosti has made the relevant statement, quoting its sources of information.

According to Vedomosti, the aforementioned conveyor lines are in Togliatti plant, making the assembly of Lada XRAY, Lada Largus, Renault Logan and Renault Sandero models on B0 platform, alongside Lada 4×4 SUV. In the meantime, the number of shifts and the length of working week will remain unchanged and there are no layoff plans for the staff. The company has taken this step, forecasting a shrinkage in automobile demand.

Majority of the aforementioned models showed negative dynamics by the end of the first 7 months of 2019, in comparison with the January-July period of the previous year: Lada Largus – 24380 units (-1%), Renault Logan – 19149 (+3%), Renault Sandero – 17059 (-9%), Lada XRAY – 16380 (-17%), Lada 4×4 – 17598 (-1%).
