GAZ is looking to at least double its exports by the end of the decade
Russian flagship automaker GAZ is looking to at least double its exports by the end of the decade, a senior executive said Tuesday. "We could bring our annual exports to 100,000 units by 2010," said Sergei Shunin, head of export sales at Russkiye Mashiny, which distributes GAZ vehicles. GAZ exported 43,475 vehicles in 2005, and is set to increase foreign sales to 45,000-47,000 units this year. Based in the central Russian city of Niznhy Novgorod, GAZ supplies vehicles to 29 countries in the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Shunin said the company is now modifying some models to meet EU requirements, as it looks to expand into Western European markets, including Germany, Italy, Austria and Greece. GAZ will also focus on African exports in the next five years, Shunin said. It hopes to export 1,500-2,000 GAZel minivans to South Africa this year, a double of the 2005 figure. GAZ's Volga sedan cars are exported mainly to ex-Soviet republics. GAZel and Sobol minivans form the bulk of exports outside the former Soviet Union.
