Deliveries of 5-Speed manual transmissions to Russia's GM-Avtovaz starts

Aisin AI Co., Ltd. (Head office: Nishio City, Aichi; President: Masahiro Suo) has accepted orders from GM-Avtovaz (Togliatti, Russia) for 5-speed manual transmissions (4WD type), with deliveries to begin in November. This is the second order we have received from a member of the GM group, after deliveries of an earlier order from General Motors Corporation began in October.

The 5-speed transmissions ordered by GM-Avtovaz will be used in the company's new Chevy Niva export model, an all-wheel drive SUV with a 1.8 liter gas engine that is to go on sale in the latter half of 2004. The order is expected to be worth up to 1.5 billion yen. Manufacture and assembly will take place at Aisin AI's main plant, with sales made to GM-Avtovaz through Toyota Tsusho Corporation (Head office: Nagoya City; President: Masaaki Furukawa).
