According to the Autonews resource, there is a shortage of UAZ Patriot SUVs in Russia. This was reported by both dealers and the company itself.
In one of the dealerships, we managed to find a “Patriot” in the basic version of Classic Fleet for 1.8 million rubles, but cars with an “automatic” remained with the dealer only in older versions at a price of 2.8 million rubles.
Another major dealership didn’t have manual-transmission Patriots at all, and the dealership didn’t say when they would be available again. “Patriots” with “automatic” were found, but the price is more than 2.7 million rubles. In the third dealership, they managed to find an SUV with a manual transmission for 1.7 million rubles, but there was no car with an automatic transmission.
The plant recognizes a certain shortage, but notes that they are doing everything possible to correct the situation. “The production of UAZ, unlike other enterprises, has never even been suspended, since the company has a pool of reliable local suppliers. However, we, like everyone else, are subject to the same restrictions associated with the supply of imported components. For a number of positions (for example, ABS and electronic engine control systems), units from alternative suppliers have already been developed and implemented in production“, – explained the representative of the automaker.
