The Minsk-based plant managed to retain its position on the Russian market. Thus, in 2011 the company shipped 18,000 engines compliant with the Euro-3 ecological standard to GAZ Group. Next year the plant is expected to provide GAZ with 9,000 Euro-4 engines. Minsk Motor Plant launched the production of these engines in Q4. The exports of 300hp diesel engines to Ukraine have increased as well.
