The premiere of the new Russian luxury class automobiles: Aurus Senat and Aurus Senat Limousine has taken place at the Geneva Motor Show. Aurus vehicles have been designed both in armoured version and without special protection. The production of both models started at the same time, as stated by the press office of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Commerce. Aurus Senat Limousine, which is manufactured only in armoured version and Aurus Senat in standard equipment have been presented within the framework of the European premiere.
“During the current establishment process, production growth is the most important factor in the development of the Aurus brand. The brand has obvious prospects, attracting official Russian and foreign partners and exporting Aurus automobiles being the priorities” – as highlighted by the minister of industry and commerce Denis Manturov.
As one may remember, the production of Aurus automobiles started on special orders in Russia in August 2018. Following Aurus, the official partners of the company: Avilon and Panavto have started taking orders on 15 February 2019.
The Federal State Unitary Enterprise: NAMI currently manufactures Aurus automobiles at its facilities based in Moscow. The production volume is limited, on the other hand, since the process is being adapted to modern manufacturing standards, manually, in individual measures and with the highest quality.
The development and creation of additional production facilities in cooperation with its industrial partner Sollers is within the business plan of Aurus. The project is planned to be implemented by the end of 2020 at a new car plant in Tatarstan, which will increase the serial production of all Aurus models to 5000 units annually in a single shift.
