    Russia's major car manufacturer presents six new concept cars

    The cars were presented at the Moscow International Automobile Salon

    MOSCOW, August 24. /TASS/. Russia’s largest car maker Avtovaz has presented six new concept cars including new Lada X-Code model at the Moscow International Automobile Salon.

    This was stated by Avtovaz President Nicolas Moore and Lada designer Steve Mattin.

    Lada X-Sode Concept is a car that is designed to demonstrate the possible development of a lineup Lada and show a new design concept.

    The car was presented at the stand in a bright lime green with a white roof. In design it was close to currently produced X-Ray and Vesta cars.

    "The concept car provides a number of potential solutions, including the use of turbo and all-wheel drive transmission and Lada Connect telematic platform that allows you to control vehicle systems via smartphone, and in the future use of the car cloud services," the company said. Avtovaz presented new concepts of cross-version Vesta and X-Ray cars, as well as the version of Lada Vesta SW Cross Concept - the off-road version of the station wagon.

    The carmaker also showcased sport-versions of Vesta and X-Ray models.

    Avtovaz is looking to the renault plant in Iran to produce Lada's in Iran for domestic and export sales.  A good move.  Kamaz and others should also make the same move.

    So with that, Russia's biggest private-use car manufacturer is foreign-owned. Very similar to what happened in the UK (Jaguar, Land Rover), Serbia, Romania and so on.

    Any other Russian car brands still in existence, owned in majority by Russian entities?

    So it begins. They'll build in Iran and sell in Russia and ex-USSR.

    Uh no, they wont sell in Russia those cars since Togliatti produces a shit ton of vehicles (way more than any other plant that produces in Iran).  But nice try on the stupid trolling.

    Avtovaz has been owned by a JV between Renault and Nissan for years.  UAZ is a all Russian brand.

    It is as if you don't even know how this stuff works.  You are aware that Ford has a plant in both Kazakhstan and in Russia?  And both export to other countries? They are trying to get into Iran since it is a large market. They won't be able to produce even close to enough to replace Togliatti production......... Also, the Russian government wouldn't allow it since Rostec has investments in it and well, we all know what Rostec does.

    I do not completely understand this move, why place production in Iran? I would understand somewhere in South America to cover that market but... Iran is basically next to Russia, and where exactly Iran can export its cars to. Iraq? Syria? North Korea Smile? I figure this is some kind of political agreement rather than anything else.

    Well yea... our two bus factories, one is gone, one assembles shit for Mercedes basically... truck building company died...they are trying to revive it atm for military purposes, Zastava is in hands of Fiat mostly produces cars that do not sell very well, already stopped one shift... two tractor companies... both died...

    You two are aware that Lada Granta and Kalina are produced also in Kazakhstan, which borders Russia, right?

    Productions outside of Russia are kept small for sales to the domestic markets with some prospects to export too.  Hence why they will be using a renault plant. As your comment militorov, you actually hit the nail. The market for export can be mainly Iraq which will be in demand for cheaper cars and already Iranian brands are gaining traction in sales in Iraq.

    Thing with Kazakhstan is abit different, they are in CSTO and already had fairly well developed car industry.

    Yeah, but even the article from rostec states why - because Iran is a large market.

    The hint is at the beginning. It is expensive to still ship things via ship in the Caspian sea. It will mean that Lada's will be competitive in Iran and Iraq.

    Not Russian car per se but it looks like that former Lada supercar concept will be build by Austrian company Milan automobiles GmbH under name Milan Red. 20 units per year.

    Best of all, they came in contact with designer when company representatives visited Crimea. russia

    I guess they will get royalties from it, and because it is built in Austria, it wont have the connotations that it is "russian" to it thus may sell well.

    No this wasn't Lada's project it was just pitched to them.

    And it will certainly have connotations with Russia. In fact I think it will be selling point since it's called Milan RED

    [UPDATE: AvtoVAZ says plans to lay off only 740 people now

    http://www.1prime.biz/news/transport_automobile/_UPDATE_AvtoVAZ_says_plans_to_lay_off_only_740_people_now/0/%7B6C3794FC-3805-4035-BD5E-23547F31E477%7D.uif

    So they decide to fire 740 people

    Liberals at Komersant hear about it and deem that it's not sensational enough so they add one more zero at the end and get 7400

    To get better headline they round 7400 to 8000

    Liberals....  no need to insult them because just calling them liberals is insult in itself
