RusAutoNewsCom.- Ford Sollers Elabuga has announced the launch of the production of the updated Ford Transit at the factory of the company in Elabuga Special Economic Zone. The first automobiles have already rolled off the conveyor and delivered to the clients in official centres.

The updated Transit has retained all the advanced features and received updated seats, alongside a new colour palette of exterior and interior trim. The supporting structure of the body and the door locks have also been modernised, which led to an additional strengthening of the body.

Ford Transit is the leader of the Russian market in the segment of foreign brand LCVs. The sales of the model have risen by 7% year-on-year by the end of the January-August period, reaching 7267 units. 1237 Transits have been sold in August.

As one may remember, Transit is being manufactured at the Elabuga plant since April 2015 in full-cycle technology, including welding and painting.
