The published plans of the Ulyanovsk car factory for the expansion of the model range and production volume. The project “Russian Prado” is really already underway, and a Patriot with an automatic transmission must become popular before the end of the year.
The head of the plant Adil Shirinov said that the company plans to invest in the so-called “platform of Patriot-2020” up to seven billion rubles. As the press service of the Government of the Ulyanovsk region, a statement that was made at the meeting Shirinov with the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov as proof that the UAZ intends to systematically expand production and increase demand.
