Production of light commercial vehicles Volkswagen will be launched in Uzbekistan. This is reported by Uzbek media.

Production of German cars in Uzbekistan will be developed in two stages. At the first stage, in 2020/2021, ready cars will be imported, and a dealer and service network will be established in Tashkent, Ferghana and Jizzakh regions. Employees of the Jizzakhautomobile factory will receive the necessary training in large-unit assembly and quality control.

"Volkswagen cars that will be sold from the factory will be guaranteed from two to three years without mileage restrictions," said OybekAyubov, Deputy General Director of the Jizzakhautomobile factory.

Last year, 18,000 light commercial vehicles worth $132 million were imported to Uzbekistan.

In March of 2020, Uzavtosanoat and Volkswagen Group Rus signed a cooperation agreement to organize the production of light commercial vehicles at the Jizzakh automobile factory.
