MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia on Monday has begun production of the Aurus Senat luxury sedan car promoted by President Vladimir Putin.
Russia unveiled plans for the Aurus line of cars in 2013. Putin helped to promote its limousine model by driving it during his 2018 inauguration as president for a new six-year term.
Production of the sedan is unlikely to have a significant impact on Russia’s car industry in the near future. Industry Minister Denis Manturov said 200-300 cars would be produced this year, the Vedomosti newspaper reported.
The car, seen as a prestige project for the Kremlin, with its most basic available features will cost 18 million roubles ($245,000).
Russia has also been trying to reduce its dependence on imported goods and technology, a drive that gathered speed after Moscow was hit by Western sanctions in 2014.
($1 = 73.3652 roubles)
Production is bound to be slowed down every now and then when sanctions are placed on Russia since the engine are developed by Porsche.

I think if kenya can adopt the model of driving on the right second car prices will come down due to lot’s of supplies especially from China man.
unafikilia ni wajinga kama mamako?
ndio sababu wali source engine Germany.
germany cannot be dictated on somes baseless sanction and showed murica the middle finger on nord stream 2 gas pipeline
Nope. Taxes and shipping are the biggest items in final final price.
Maliza kutomba mama yako then come say something coherent.
they are huge part yes, but cost price is high too because source market is small, .if say we could import lhd vehicles in kenya, before taxes the cost price will be less, china man would have flooded this market kitambo even after taxes, they won’t be high as now, sahi kuna very many models we can’t import to kenya unless ufanye modification
only haters will say inafanana na rolls royce , i can barely see any similiarities banae…
