The products of the French Renault brand are excluded from the list of goods allowed for parallel import due to the fact that AvtoVAZ has assumed obligations for warranty service of the French brand cars. AvtoVAZ will also sell Renault spare parts.
At the same time, the updated list of the Ministry of Industry and Trade for parallel imports has been replenished with brands of automotive parts, products of the radio-electronic, chemical industry and other goods. “So, it will now be possible to supply Castrol, Liqui Moly, Datsun, Alienware and others through parallel imports. These changes were necessary, since the most important indicator of the effectiveness of the parallel import mechanism is the availability of all necessary goods for Russian citizens and industrial enterprises.”, — added in the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
I must say that the Datsun brand is already dead – in April of this year, Nissan finally abandoned the production of cars under this brand.
