Abstract : The report describes models of passenger vehicles produced today by eight USSR automotive manufacturers. Fifty years ago at the factory in Fili only five passenger vehicles type 'Russo-Balt' were successfully assembled from parts manufactured before the revolution. Large scale production of passenger vehicles in Russia became possible only with development of modern automotive factories. From the assembly lines of these factories came the EMK, ZIS and KIM. They have since been replaced by the Zpobeda, Volga and Moskovich.
