Kyrgyzstan to Start Producing Chevrolet, Isuzu Cars This Year

A joint Kyrgyz-Uzbek factory for the production of Chevrolet and Isuzu cars is currently under construction in Kyrgyzstan. Several years ago the Kyrgyz and Uzbek governments agreed to build the plant, near Bishkek. Since then the authorities of both countries have been solving legal and investment issues related to the project. They also discussed taxation of the new enterprise and a grace period to allow the plant to get up and running.  As a result, at the beginning of 2023 Kyrgyz deputies approved the agreement and the builders started to erect production lines for the car assembly plant. The parties wanted to launch the plant last year, but the deadlines for completion of work were repeatedly pushed back. Production of Chevrolet and Isuzu cars began in Uzbekistan in 2007 at a joint venture Daewoo plant. As representatives of the Uzbek company noted earlier, Kyrgyzstan is one of the priority markets for the expansion of production, as the China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan road corridor reduces the time it takes to deliver components, making car assembly cheaper. According to the Kyrgyz government, the plant should begin operations in the second quarter of this year, and the first car should roll off the assembly line in late May. At the initial stage, Uzbekistan's UzAuto Motors should invest $50 million and produce 10,000 cars in the first year -- with the enterprise creating more than 1,000 permanent jobs. The first model produced at the plant will be the Chevrolet Nexia R3. According to agreements between Bishkek and Tashkent, the first stage will include Uzbekistan bringing components in the form of large assemblies ready for installation into Kyrgyzstan. During the second stage, targeted to start in four years, the plant will produce automobile components independently -- and produce about 20,000 cars a year. In the sixth year of operation, according to the plan, the Kyrgyz plant will perform a variety of technological operations, including body welding and painting, and should produce about 30,000 cars per year.

Uzbekistan Plans to Manufacture One Million Cars a Year by 2030

Uzbekistan Plans to Manufacture One Million Cars a Year by 2030 The number of cars manufactured in Uzbekistan has grown threefold in recent years, with total annual production expected to reach 415,000 by the end of this year. This was said at a government meeting chaired by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on December 14th. In order to end the state monopoly and develop competition in the Uzbek automotive industry, three new private automakers and prestigious foreign brands have been attracted to Uzbekistan. Today, eight plants in the country manufacture dozens of types of cars, freight and passenger transport, and agricultural machinery. In addition, more than 2,000 enterprises in the industry closely cooperate with each other, and a 50% localization of component production is ensured. It was said at the meeting that by 2030, Uzbekistan plans to increase the annual production of passenger cars to a million. Today, the world's leading automakers are switching to the production of electric vehicles. If domestic enterprises are slow to develop in this direction, in the future they will face difficulties in occupying a worthy place in the market. Uzbekistan has already started the first projects in this direction. It is planned that next year a car plant capable of producing 10,000 electric vehicles a year will be launched in the country. The President pointed out the importance of special attention being paid to the production of electric vehicles, and ordered the production of components for them.
