On Tuesday, February 7, 2023, the head of AvtoVAZ, Maxim Sokolov, signed documents to acquire the former Nissan Manufacturing RUS plant in St. Petersburg. As part of the deal, 99 percent of the enterprise is transferred to AvtoVAZ at a price of 1 euro with payment in ruble equivalent at the exchange rate on the date of payment - today it is 75 rubles 99 kopecks. Nissan has a six-year buyback option if the Japanese side wants to take back the site and this step is approved by the Russian government.

Now AvtoVAZ is faced with the task of restarting production at the St. Petersburg plant and ensuring a high level of localization. It is already known that the plant will organize the production of cars of so far unnamed Chinese partners under the Lada brand. These will be models of classes C and D, which will not compete with current models of the Russian brand. Among them will be sedans and crossovers.

AvtoVAZ, for its part, confirmed plans to restart the plant in the second half of 2023. This year, 10,000 cars will roll off the assembly line.

Trade the shares of the world's leading producers

“In 2024-2027, we will localize these vehicles, where the key task will be to maximize the use of the capabilities of more than 30 regional suppliers of automotive components,” Maxim Sokolov said. - At the same time, for the successful development of the component industry, AvtoVAZ relies on government mechanisms to stimulate suppliers, for example, preferential loans from the federal and regional Industrial Development Funds. It is extremely important that these mechanisms are provided with adequate funding.”

According to the head of AvtoVAZ, by 2027, production volumes at the former site of Nissan Manufacturing RUS will reach 50-70 thousand units per year. The number of models that will roll off the assembly line "depends on the number of future partners." Which Chinese companies will help AvtoVAZ to restart the enterprise is still unknown.

Two self-igniting electric vehicles in recent days add new safety and environmental concerns.

Two self-igniting electric vehicles in recent days add new safety and environmental concerns.
In Hanover, Germany, an electric bus caught fire, luckily no passengers. The building near the bus was also damaged in the accident.
Extinguishing such a bus is practically very difficult, even pointless without the necessary specialized equipment, so the police wait for it to burn, only securing the perimeter.
The other incident is from Sacramento, United States, where a Tesla Model S self-ignited while driving, luckily with no injuries. They reportedly used 22,000 liters of water to cool the battery, but the extinguishment itself occurred after the battery and the front of the car burned.

Until recently, people are welcomed and strongly encouraged to buy electric cars.

Until recently, people are welcomed and strongly encouraged to buy electric cars. But this trend is reversing extremely quickly. Electric car bans are becoming more and more common.
Following the words of an elite driver from the Davos forum who stated that the elite do not want to use electric cars because they consider them too dangerous. The driver literally stated that these cars (electric cars) are for the common man.

A Norwegian shipping company bans the use of electric cars on its ferries. According to a risk analysis, the risk of ignition of such vehicles is too great.

Havila Shipping CEO Bent Martini said, according to a report by shipping news service TradeWinds, that a risk analysis showed that an EV fire would require a particularly expensive salvage operation. It could not have been secured by the crew on board. Passengers would also be at risk.

The time won't be far when you won't be able to park your electric car in the mall. It's too dangerous for everyone else, including the building itself.
