«Under the terms of the fourth contract concluded with the State Unitary Enterprise MOSGORTRANS, we must transfer 350 KAMAZ electric buses in 2021. As part of this order, 200 units of innovative electric vehicles have already been produced, 60 of them were assembled directly in Moscow on the basis of SVARZ, the rest of the electric buses were produced at NEFAZ, a subsidiary of KAMAZ in Bashkortostan, – said Andrey Dolganov, head of the Passenger Electric Transport Promotion Service. – Thus, by January 2022, 750 KAMAZ electric buses will carry Moscow passengers.
