Russian auto plant reduces car prices

Russian automotive plantGreat news for the Russian automotive industry from the Gorky Automotive Plant.

Gorky Automotive Plant is setting unified prices for 'GAZ' cars all across Russia. As a result, the prices will decrease in the regions located far from the production center. For example, in the Russian Far East the prices will decrease by RUR17000 for passenger cars and by RUR24-55000 for commercial vehicles.

These changes in the pricing policy aim to make the products maximally close to customers and to further improve the services of the maintenance-sales network at sale and after-sale point servicing.
