For 2025, in addition to the launch of a minivan, Sollers has also planned to begin assembling pickup trucks with automatic transmissions. Currently, the company produces a number of models under its own brand in Elabuga, Vladivostok and Ulyanovsk.

Currently, the holding produces vehicles under its own Sollers brand: Argo and Atlant commercial vans, as well as the ST6 pickup truck. All three models are slightly restyled cars from the Chinese JAC.
