MOSCOW: Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp has decided to close its plant in Russia, Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade said in a statement.

The automaker suspended production in St Petersburg in March due to supply chain disruptions and stopped vehicle imports into Russia.

Toyota will ensure the fulfilment of all social obligations, as well as significant additional pay-offs to the staff, the ministry said, and will retain after-sales service of Toyota and Lexus cars and maintain its dealer network.

Toyota to produce 800,000 vehicles in October, weighed by chips shortage

Russia’s Kommersant newspaper first reported the plans, citing unnamed sources, earlier on Friday.

The factory, which has a capacity of 100,000 units a year and produced the Camry and RAV4 models, will be preserved and may be sold in the future, Kommersant’s sources said.

The ministry and regional authorities are working on possible scenarios to develop the site, the ministry said.
