Assembly began on November 23, 2022. Sales in Russia started on December 26, 2022.

On October 12, 2023, independent body welding began at the plant. To launch the welding shop, a robotic system of welding equipment was installed. On October 27, 2023, Moskvich completed the preparation of the body painting shop for the start of small-unit assembly.

The car is completely assembled at a factory in China, after which the engine, wheels, suspension and gas tank are removed from it and transported in containers to Moscow, where they are assembled back on the assembly line and a nameplate with the Moskvich brand is installed (the nameplate is also made in China, and the stickers are The steering wheel and wheels are already glued on at the Chinese factory).

At stage III, Moskvich plans to begin production of a Russian electric vehicle from the main Russian components on its own universal platform (electric motor, batteries, gearbox).
