Mitsubishi Stops Car Production And Sales In Russia

More automakers suspend ops in Russia.

Several businesses, particularly the automobile industry, have been disrupted as a result of the present Ukraine-Russia conflict. Several brands have announced the cessation of activities or production in Russia more than a month after the invasion began. The first companies to halt operations there were Ford, Jaguar-Land Rover, and Volvo.

Another automaker has been added to the list. Mitsubishi is the business in question, and it has halted operations at its Kaluga factory in Russia until further notice. Aside from that, Mitsubishi has stopped exporting vehicles and supplying parts. The main reason for the suspension of Russian operations is logistical challenges, according to the automaker.

Mitsubishi Motors did not provide any additional information about the plant’s temporary closure. For the Russian market, the facility produces the Pajero Sport midsize SUV. In other parts of the world, the Pajero Sport is known as the Montero Sport.

One of Stellantis’ key production facilities in Russia is the Kaluga assembly line. The company’s midsized commercial vans, such as the Peugeot Traveller, Opel Combo, and Citroen Berlingo, are assembled at Kaluga.

At the time of writing, Stellantis did not mention anything about suspending Russian assembly. However, the company said it might have to pause operations in the country due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage and the difficulties in the parts supply chain. However, it halted vehicle export and import to Russia before Mitsubishi’s announcement.

While Mitsubishi suspended assembly and exportation, it doesn’t mean the Japanese automaker is pulling out of Russia altogether. But since the company mentioned that the halt is ‘indefinite,’ it will depend on the current conflict and the chip shortage crisis.

The trade and economic sanctions are heavily affecting Russia’s domestic automakers. About a month ago, Lada halted production due to a lack of supplies. Automotive News Europe also reports new car sales in Russia dropped by 63 percent.
