Start of construction

The wary attitude towards the turbomotors is well known to the managers of the Moscow office of the Korean automaker. Given this stereotype of Russian motorists, and their reverent attitude to atmospheric power units, a motor factor can become a processor for the growth process, or the fall in the popularity of Korean autocone car.

And it will immediately cross all the achievements of the two Korean brands in the Russian market. Recall that for the crisis years 2014-2018, their share in the Russian Federation rose to record 24%.

We immediately note that in the official start of the construction process of the automaker, released on the occasion of the official start of the construction process, it was immediately said that the main produced at the enterprise Hyundai WIA

After reading these rows, many Russian motorists calmed down: the Korean concern will not follow modern fashion on Downsaysing, that is, a decrease in the volume of the motor for the sake of environmental requirements that are constantly tightened in neighboring Europe. Moreover, it is impossible not to noted that in the model range of motors, Koreans have turbo engines with minor volumes. So, on the Korean brand cars in the Indian market, you can find a liter turbo engine capacity of 100 hp, and in Europe at the Hyundai Kona crossover (Creta class for developed USA, Europe and South Korean markets) Motor turbo engine 1.0 T-GDI (120 L.S.).

And here is another confirmation that Korean top management takes into account the opinion of Russians. South Korean brand Hyundai plans to produce in Russia not only a 1,6-liter power unit of the Gamma family, but also a more powerful and modern unit of the NU family.

According to the portal Drom.ru, at the new Motor Plant Hyundai WIA also will also be established as an assembly of a 2.0-liter unit Hyundai Nu. Which is known for models

To establish the release of these components can at the Nemak plant, located in Ulyanovsk, and which, in turn, will already become a cylinder block supplier for a 1.6-liter motor. Another candidate is the Volga Motor Plant (ZMZ) of the Sollers Group. In turn, in St. Petersburg at the Hyundai Motor Plant Hyundai WIA own foundry will not be created. Here they will only process the supplied parts of the engines.

Recall that the management of the plant «Nemk Rus» in Ulyanovsk announced that 1.7 billion rubles will invest. In the project for engine engines Hyundai. New production of heads and blocks of engine cylinders for Hyundai cars will be launched in the autumn of 2021 synchronously with the plant in St. Petersburg.
