The former Mercedes plant near Moscow can launch the Hongqui production

The Avtodom company, which bought the Russian assets of Mercedes, plans to start assembling Chinese Hongqi at the plant in the Moscow region.

According to internal sources, there are no other notable premium manufacturers in China that could enter the Russian market apart from Hongqi. It is planned that crossovers of this brand will be first to enter production of the plant.

It is known that one model has already received the Vehicle Type Approval for the Russian market at the end of 2022. This is Hongqi HS5 – a compact SUV equipped with 2.0-liter 224-HP turbocharged engine and 6-speed automatic gear box.
