Yugoslavia: Automotive
Country Study > Chapter 3 > The Economy > Structure of the Economy > Industry > Automotive


The extensive Yugoslav automobile industry was dominated by the Red Banner (Crvena zastava) group of plants, located in Kragujevac and several other cities. Red Banner produced passenger cars such as the Yugo, Zastava, Una, and Florida, commercial and delivery vehicles, and machine tools. In 1989 half the enterprise's production was exported, primarily to France, Poland, the Soviet Union, the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), and the United States. In joint production agreements with firms in France, Poland, the Soviet Union, Italy, and East Germany, Red Banner contributed vehicle components, machine tools, and spare parts.
