MINSK, 20 July (BelTA) – The Belarusian-Chinese car manufacturer SZAO BelGee intends to become one of Belarus' top five car dealers, BelTA learned from BelGee Deputy Director Kirill Sholomitsky.
The executive said: “With one model with several affordable sets of options we've become a top 10 car dealer in Belarus. It was Geely Atlas. We now intend to become a top 5 car dealer.” It will become possible once two more models – Emgrand X7 and Emgrand – are batch produced. The launch of the latter is scheduled for autumn.
According to Kirill Sholomitsky, the company is happy to report strong sales, the stock in storage is nearly non-existent. “Everything we make gets sold. We ship cars to be sold today. Shipments to Russia flow continuously,” he remarked.
Some 3,000 cars have been made and sold: 2,000 cars sold in Russia and 1,000 sold in Belarus. There are plans to ship another 8,000-10,000 cars to Russia this year.
The Belarusian-Chinese car factory BelGee was set up in 2011 to produce Geely cars. The first car rolled off the assembly line in February 2013.
