“Sollers cars will replace the Ford Transit that left the Russian market.

Sales of the first light commercial vehicles will start in December of this year, and full-cycle production will be launched in 2023," Manturov said.

He also noted that the cars will participate in the state program of preferential leasing.

On September 6, Sollers Auto plans to launch and promote its own Sollers brand.

On October 26, the American carmaker Ford Motor sold its Russian assets to the Sollers joint venture.
