ZiL Likhachov Plant was a major Russian automobile, truck, military vehicle, and heavy equipment manufacturer that was based in Moscow, Russia. The factory was founded on 2 August 1916 as the Moscow Automotive Society. The factory was completed in 1917, just before the Revolution, and was built south of Moscow near the Moscow River in Tjufeleva grove. It was a modern building with the latest in American equipment and was designed to employ 6,000 workers.
The ZiL limousines were the official car that carried the Soviet heads of state, and the many Soviet Union allied leaders, to summits or in parades. The last ZiL vehicle was assembled in 2012. The company continues to exist only as a real-estate development site, on which a new urban district will be built by the construction company.
ZIL-5301 Goby is a Russian medium-duty truck manufactured by the Likhachev Plant. The first prototypes appeared in 1991. Serially produced from 1995 to 2014.
By 2000, the share of ZIL-5301 Goby in the total production of AMO ZIL reached 56%, which amounted to 12.3 thousand vehicles. Thus, these vehicles were able to provide the plant with the necessary capacity utilization. In the second half of the 2000s, due to the deterioration of the company’s financial performance and increased competition from domestic counterparts (GAZ-3310 Valdai) and foreign (primarily Korean and Chinese) brands, the share of ZIL-5301 Goby in production began to fall rapidly
