With the departure of the Japanese manufacturer, the Ulyanovsk plant was taken over by Sollers, which plans to bring it back to work in the fourth quarter of 2024. The plant, renamed Sollers Comtrans, will produce medium-tonnage trucks on a platform provided by an Asian technology partner. It was not previously represented on the Russian market “in any form,” Sollers says.

The Ulyanovsk plant will produce trucks that will be close analogues of the Isuzu trucks previously produced there. The platform on which they will be built is entering the Russian market for the first time, and therefore the homologation process is quite long. It is now coming to an end. Sollers expects that the new line will be presented in early autumn.

According to earlier insider information, Sollers Comtrans was going to put Sollers Argo, also known as JAC N25/N35, on the conveyor. Apparently, the company decided to abandon this idea and continue to assemble the light-duty truck at UAZ facilities.

The Isuzu brand appeared in Russia in 2006. Isuzu Rus in Ulyanovsk produced light-duty (N-series), medium-duty (F-series) and heavy-duty trucks (Giga series). In 2021, about 3.7 thousand small and large trucks were produced there – about one percent of Isuzu’s global production volume.
