According to the company’s press service, the global crises with semiconductors and logistics, as well as the geopolitical situation in Eastern Europe, have tangibly affected the global automotive industry, which significantly affected both production volumes and the cost of cars. 

Global car sales are expected to remain flat at 81.4 million units this year as chip shortages and China’s lockdown hit sales volumes.

UzAuto Motors produced 160,000 vehicles in the first six months of this year and, responding to the wishes of consumers, launched the production of new models. Due to the increase in demand among consumers for more modern cars, UzAuto Motors is gradually transferring production capacities to the production of new models.

As part of the renewal of the model range and increase in production volume, during negotiations with representatives of General Motors in Detroit, an agreement was reached on a significant increase in the production capacity of the UzAuto Motors plant. Also, along with the Chevrolet Tracker and Onix, work is underway to expand the lineup with modern models of Chevrolet cars and update (facelift) those already in production.

So, in July, the industrial production of the Chevrolet Tracker was already launched, and a week later, as part of the pre-production batch, the first Chevrolet Onix was produced, the introduction of which into industrial production is scheduled for early 2023.

In connection with the transfer of UzAuto Motors conveyors to the production of new models, the production of Chevrolet Spark and Nexia cars will be stopped by the end of 2022. The remnants of the available components allow the company to continue the production of the last batches of these models in various trim levels and in limited quantities throughout 2022. Chevrolet Spark and Nexia produced in this way go on sale from today.

Also, given the increased demand for UzAuto Motors cars in Uzbekistan, the company decided to redirect part of the export volumes of Chevrolet Spark and Nexia cars to the domestic market.
