Japanese carmaker Mazda is considering putting a stop to its vehicle production in Russia following the nation’s invasion of Ukraine.
The withdrawal is reportedly under discussion with the manufacturer’s partner in Russia, Sollers, and its other stakeholders.
There is no vision to restart production in the country according to the Japan Times.
In 2021, Mazda sold around 30,000 vehicles in Russia and has been manufacturing vehicles in Vladivostok on the eastern coast of the nation since 2012.
The same story can be said for Toyota which says it will permanently cease vehicle production there too.
Nissan and Honda also did the same alongside Toyota back in March this year. Toyota also told the Japan Times that all new car sales will cease without imports to Russia.
