The buyer may be a Russian dealer of Avtodom
The well-known German automaker Mercedes-Benz will sell its plant in the Moscow region. The Russian dealer of the Avtodom company can become the buyer.
This is reported by the Russian edition of Kommersant .
The German company said that they are considering different options for doing business in Russia. This plant was engaged in the assembly of cars.
If a Russian company buys the plant, it will not be able to use it to assemble a German brand car. This requires supplies from various authorized parts manufacturers, which is currently not possible.
It is reported that the plant was launched in 2019, but the investment has not yet paid off, so the company may retain a buyback option.
It should be noted that Mercedes-Benz planned to sell the property of the Mercedes-Benz Rus distributor along with the rights to one of the Russian dealers.
As UNIAN previously reported, on March 8 it became known that the Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini was ending cooperation with the Russian Federation due to the war in Ukraine.
The company said that it is deeply saddened by the events in Ukraine and intends to support the victims of the war. Kocert promised to transfer the donation to the UN refugee fund.
