Mass production of Russian luxury cars "Aurus", which were designed for the President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, under the project "Cortege", will start at the beginning of 2020. This was announced by the head of Minpromtorg Denis Manturov.
The cars will be manufactured at the Sollers plant in Alabuga (Tatarstan), where it is planned to create capacities for the production of five thousand cars per year. During 2019 there will be preparation for the transition to mass production, which will be launched in the second part of 2020.
As Manturov noted, the cost of Aurus now is 15 percent less than of its competitors in the premium segment (Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Maybach by Mercedes). As the quantity of the car production increases, the price can decrease even more.
