Mazda is considering phasing out vehicle production at its plant in Vladivostok, Russia, amid supply chain problems. This was reported by the Nikkei.
As noted, Mazda produces cars at a joint venture with Sollers. Production was already suspended in the spring, and now the Japanese company is considering withdrawing from the joint project completely. According to the publication, the decision to stop sales of cars or their maintenance in Russia has not yet been made.
Recall that on Friday, another Japanese company, Toyota, announced the closure of the assembly site in St. Petersburg. At the same time, the Moscow office of Toyota Motor will be reduced to a minimum. At the same time, the company promised to maintain after-sales service for Toyota and Lexus vehicles and maintain a dealer network.
