In August of this year, new models of Russian cars of the Togliatti Automobile Plant will be presented at the Moscow Motor Show. For the first time the world will be shown models over which the car factory workers will work in the coming years. One of the presented novelties will be the second generation of Lada Kalina (hatchback and station wagon). New models are radically different from their brothers in appearance. President of AvtoVAZ OJSC Igor Komarov believes that the new Lada Kalina looks more modern and aggressive. The model will be equipped with numerous options. The enterprise management claims that facelift will not affect the price of a new car. At the beginning of 2013, motorists will see Lada Kalina in a new form.
This model is over seven years. Its development began back in 1993, and in 2007 it underwent changes: ABS and a new sixteen -valve engine with a volume of 1.4 liters were added. 2006 was marked by the release of the first hatchback Lada Kalina, and in 2007 the first station wagon was released. The standard audio system appeared in the configuration in 2010. In 2011, Kalina’s car was stopped in the sedan car. He was replaced by Lada Granta.
At the Motor Show in Moscow, AvtoVAZ plans to demonstrate ELLADA and crossover electric car.
The fact that the Volga Automobile Plant plans to release a crossover is said repeatedly. Moreover, it was not about the plans for the release of the crossover based on the B0 platform, which would be called B-Cross and only outwardly resemble a crossover, but also a full-fledged LADA SUV C. The model should go into serial production in a couple of years. According to Igor Burenkov, director for external relations of AvtoVAZ, not only AvtoVAZ employees take part in its development, but also Nissan-Renault alliance specialists. Even the eminent designer Steve Mattin is working on the design of the new model. This is his first model, which will be represented by the general public.
At AvtoVAZ, the SUV began to develop as early as 2007. Earlier it was reported that the car is equipped with a two -liter engine and has a mass of about 1370 kg. For the first time, the Lada C-Cross crossover appeared before the public in 2008 at the St. Petersburg exhibition. Then he was still in the form of a concept. The dimensions of the concept were 4410x1812x1557 mm, the luggage compartment had a volume of 350 liters. Crossover Crossover AvtoVAZ – 210 mm, he has shortened overhangs and 18 -inch wheels. The concept externally stands out by the radiator grill of the original type, the arches of the wheels, which are brightly released against the background of the entire car and silver edging glasses. A little more than one year went to develop a Vazovsky SUV.
The domestic budgetary novelty of Lada Granta is in frantic demand. It is already impossible to order it on the Internet. On the network, sales began on April 19, but already in the evening more than 1000 copies available for sale on the network were sold out. In 2012, Lada Granta will appear, with an automatic gearbox. This summer a luxury version will be launched, and in the fall, a set of options will be even more replenished. The consumer properties of the car will be as improved as possible.
New models will be produced under the famous Lada brand. Separate models will be released under the world -famous brands “Renault” and “Nissan”. Since this year, AvtoVAZ has become a multi -brand enterprise, which is the key to a confident future enterprise. In 2012, Nissan-Almer will come from the AvtoVAZ conveyor, and in 2013-Reno-Logan in the second generation. Eurasia Pascal Miyo, Vice President Renault on the project “Cars on the B0 platform in Russia” believes that it will be a car manufactured in Russia, assembled by the hands of Russian workers at the Russian plant, but it will be absolutely French car.
The ELLADA electric car will be presented at the Moscow Motor Show. In the halls of the main building of the car factory there is already an exhibition sample. Outwardly, the electric car is similar to Lada Kalina. Its weight will be 1200 kg. In just 13 seconds, he can accelerate to 100 km. The car on one charge is able to drive at least 140 kilometers. You can charge the ELLADA car from a regular household network, eight hours are enough to recharge.
