“Mercedes-Benz” will sell its plant in Russia

The German car manufacturer “Mercedes-Benz” intends to sell its car manufacturing plant in the Moscow region of Russia.

“Report” informs about this with reference to “Kommersant”.

It is noted that the buyer can be a Russian dealer of “Avtodom” company. “Mercedes” said that the company is considering various options for establishing business in the Russian Federation.

Before that, it was reported that Mercedes-Benz distributor Mercedes-Benz Rus wanted to sell its property to one of the Russian dealers and discussed transferring the rights of the distributor to him.

If the Russian company buys the plant, it will not be able to use it to assemble German cars, as this requires supplies from a large number of competent component manufacturers, which is impossible without the support of headquarters.

In the report of Mercedes-Benz for the second quarter, the risks of confiscation of its assets in Russia are noted, and the business loss in the passenger segment in the country in January-June is estimated at 658 million euros.
