MINSK, 20 September (BelTA) – The demand for low-powered engines made by the Belarusian company MMZ has increased considerably in Russia, BelTA learned from MMZ Chief Designer Mikhail Klesso.
Mikhail Klesso said: “The demand has increased so much that we are having a hard time keeping up with it. Small-capacity engines are selling like hot cakes. We have successfully substituted imports from Western manufacturers in this regard. And then again MMZ turned out to be the only company capable of it in the post-Soviet space. The lineup of commercially available engines as well as our output capabilities allow fully substituting Western low-capacity engines. We started looking into low-powered engines back in 2010 without entertaining any illusions and now their finest hour has come, one can say.”
