“Our intention is to reach a production volume of 44,000 trucks in 2021. I am sure that there is a market for this. But a lot of problems arise with the supply of components. Especially these are the well-known problems of the chips, these are constant failures. Our suppliers from Europe and China are trying to somehow solve this, “- the general director of Kamaz Sergey Kogogin told reporters at the Innoprom-2021 exhibition in Yekaterinburg.
Of these 44,000 trucks, 39,000 units are destined for the Russian market, the rest is for export, a company representative explained to Vedomosti. The company’s current business plan is 5.7% lower (41,600 vehicles). Kamaz also raised its February forecast for the capacity of the Russian market for heavy trucks (weighing 14-40 tons) to 77,000 units by 27%. in 2021 This is almost 30% more than sold in 2020.
