Serial production of Aurus cars in the luxury segment started with a magnificent ceremony held in Tatarstan recently. Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the ceremony via video conference and gave a message of support. The Aurus project was implemented under the leadership of the Russian Automotive and Engine Research Institute NAMI. NAMI is also the major shareholder of the project. Ford Sollers has undertaken the production of the project, in which the Emirates Tawazun Fund from the United Arab Emirates is involved as an investor partner.
It has large investments in the Alabuga Free Economic Zone of the Tatarstan Republic of the Russian Federation and currently cooperates with world giants such as Mercedes-Benz, PCMA (Peugeot-Citroen-Mitsubishi), RNPO (Renault-Nissan), Volkswagen, as well as Russian KAMAZ. Coşkunöz Holding will supply many body parts of Aurus cars. Commenting on the mass production of Aurus, Coşkunöz Holding CEO Erdem Acay draws attention to the fact that the new project means a lot to them in terms of prestige. “As Coşkunöz, we are very happy and proud to be a part of this investment. Acay, who started his words by saying, “This is a project we attach great importance to, continues as follows:
“When we were positioned in the Alabuga Free Economic Zone, we anticipated that the automotive industry would direct its route to this region. We became one of the leading suppliers of the region by adding new brands to our production adventure that started with Ford here. We have signed long-term agreements with our commitment to quality products and zero errors. It was exciting for us to take part in such an important project in terms of history as well as prestige. “
