The Zavolzhsk Motor Factory (Nizhni Novgorod Region) is planning to increase its sales to China. A Rosbalt correspondent was informed of this at the company's press office. According to Sales Manager Alexander Lbov, a company delegation recently travelled to China where the Association of Chinese Engine Producers gave a positive assessment of the factory's 514 diesel engine and recommended all car-making enterprises in China to use these engines in Chinese cars. The demand for Zavolzhsk diesel engines on the Chinese market has been estimated at 70 thousand a year with a potential increase to 150 thousand engines a year.
