The plant is going to expand its model range, as well as develop its own production of components, focusing on the East. Acting Governor of the Kaliningrad Region Alexey Besprozvannykh said this in an interview with RIA Novosti. Now the company, which until 2022 produced BMW, Kia and Hyundai, is collaborating with several large companies from China and does not intend to stop there.

Avtotor continues to systematically overcome the crisis situation it found itself in due to the departure of former partners. There are still problems with logistics between China and Kaliningrad, but they are being resolved, Besprozvannykh said. The Chinese, he said, “are willing to cooperate.”

Currently, Avtotor employs about three thousand people. 16 passenger models, three commercial ones under the Ambertruck brand, an Amberauto electric car, which can be found on classifieds, and Brock commercial electric vehicles are rolling off the assembly line.

At the beginning of the week, Avtotor announced the start of sales of the first pickup truck under the Ambertruck brand. This is a 5.3-meter JMC Vigus frame truck with a diesel turbo engine, renamed Ambertruck Work. It costs 2.6 million rubles, but this is temporary: the price will rise in August.

The announcement of the expansion of the model range followed information about another reduction in the production plan for 2024. Instead of the initial 130 thousand cars, Avtotor will assemble only 70 thousand.
