The intention of the meeting was to acquaint the representatives of the Paraguayan company Perfecta Automotores with the production process of the Russian UAZ SUVs. The sides have discussed the issues related to the development of a close cooperation between the Russian and Paraguayan companies, during the visit to Ulyanovsk Car Factory, as stated by Kolesa.ru portal.

“We see a great potential for future success for UAZ and for that reason we have decided to sign an agreement with the Russian plant” – comments Calvin Benvin. “We have also made sure that the company manufactures competitive products, which would match anything the Japanese and Chinese manufacturers have to offer. I have no doubt about the quality of the vehicles ordered by our company”.
As reported by Autostat earlier, the sales of UAZ have risen by 1% in the Russian market within the first nine months of 2016, to 32,981 units. The flagship SUV Patriot has kept its position as the bestselling model of the brand, which was preferred by 13,553 clients (-1.2%).
