    Russia should update the Niva. Avtovaz sold the rights to GM, but GM is doing basically nothing with its version.
    The Russian design is stuck in the 1970s.

    But it's how they kept it so cheap. Even the 5 door model. While it would be cool for a more modern model, but at current rate, Avtovaz is concentrating more on the Vesta and X-ray line.

    The production of passenger cars rose by 20% in April

    "According to the Federal State Statistics Service, 510 thousand passenger cars came down from Russian conveyors ???????? for four months of 2018, which is more by 20.4% than in the same period of the last year.

    Meanwhile, in April, 140,000 cars were produced, which is more by 21.6% than a year ago. It is worth noting that LADA Izhevsk started the production of LADA Vesta Cross sedans in the last month, and the Nissan plant in St. Petersburg launched a test assembly of the updated Nissan X-Trail crossover, which is scheduled for series production in September of 2018. The company Volkswagen Group Rus stopped the production of the Volkswagen Jetta sedan at #GAZ facilities in Nizhny Novgorod in connection with the change of generations of the model. The Kaluga plant "PSMA Rus" has launched the second shift in the Mitsubishi production line. In addition, AVTOVAZ and GM-AVTOVAZ stopped the production of cars in April because of a failure in supplies of components from the Nizhny Novgorod Company “Avtokomponent”.

    The production of trucks in January-April was 45.1 thousand units, which is more by 5% than a year ago. Last month, 14.4 thousand trucks left the Russian conveyors, which is more by 6.8% than a year ago. It should be noted that in April #KAMAZ increased the production by 8% to 3,392 sets of vehicles. In addition, the Kaluga plant "PSMA Rus" has started the production of Citroen Spacetourer and Peugeot Traveler minibuses, and Kaliningrad Avtotor has mastered the assembly of refrigerators on the Hyundai HD35 chassis.

    The production of buses in Russia for the four months of 2018 fell by 3.8% to 7.2 thousand units. In April, bus plants produced 2.4 thousand vehicles (+ 8.9%)."

    Russia’s new Far North off-roader passes the Chukotka test

    The off-roader in 2017 passed trials in the Kara Sea waters and was planned for use in the North Pole



    MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. Russia’s new 6x6 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) for work in the Far North passed trials in Chukotka. The vehicle, dubbed Burlak, will be used to transport passengers and cargo, test-driver Alexander Lysenko told TASS on Thursday.

    "The vehicle easily covered the 6,000 km stretch from Yakutia to Chukotka, without any adjustments," he said. "In Chukotka, I drove it to far-away villages, thus having covered 2,500 km, the vehicle’s qualities are very high."

    "If we compare the TREKOL vehicles, which are popular in the region, with the new model, Burlak’s driving characteristics and load capacity are higher," he stressed. "While the first vehicle may take cargo of not more than 700 kg, Burlak’s load capacity is about two tonnes."

    The off-roader, tested in Chukotka, in 2017 passed trials in the Kara Sea waters and was planned for use in the North Pole. The vehicle was designed in Yekaterinburg. It may be used for driving on winter roads, and for crossing deep snow-covered terrain, which is an optimal choice for Chukotka, where regular roads are few and far between.

    The ATV takes 40 liters per 100 km, it may carry 500 liters of fuel. Some of the parts are in serial production, and some original parts and units have been designed at the Makarov All-Terrain Vehicles Company.

    GAZ-24 and GAZ-21 are couple of models from GAZ that I would like to see revived keeping as close to the original. The below design/rendering is really good, though there is always scope for changes.

    The demand for Russian cars has gone up considerably even on backdrop of sanctions in the last couple of years. There may end up coming to a point some old brands may show up again.

    I hope so at least.

    These guys really don't know to make use of rendering/designs created by fans/designers and work upon a new variant based on it.
    The below model came out online around 8 years back and overall it was a very good one as it tried to keep the basic outer design as close to the original one as possible. Eight years was more than enough to bring out a new model, but nothing happened.







    They could have given a perfect gift to this man if they had brought out a true new generation successor to NIVA

    By selling off the rights to the name NIVA to GM-Lada, the assoles who made the deal during those days sold its soul. The name/word NIVA in a sense meant a no-nonsense off-road vehicle and that's what the guys let go.

    Have also read that the name Niva came from the first letters of the children's names of the two main designers of the model.

    I hope Lada comes back to my region, my father loved his father's Lada.
    Lot of love for that car.

    In end, your going to face it's just not the same. Niva is really only thing left from Lada that is traditional Lada. Outside of that, the rest are just Nissan cars tbh.

    I would like a Nice. Canada used to have a Lada dealerships back in the day.

    Well it is still made in Russia, i am very curious about Russian engineering.

    We hardly have anything Russian except maybe cheap dog food and tooth paste, and they are rare.

    The USSR invented the concept of an SUV and produced the world's first reliable (i.e. serious suspension and durability) compact version.
    It is a crime that there is no updated design that keeps to this philosophy. The GM version is the typical US SUV toy which is a car pumped
    up to look bigger with exactly the same shitty suspension and lack of durability.

    BTW, the Jap Suzuki car company claims it "invented the SUV" during the early 1990s with this POS:



    The only way Suzuki could be right is if one defines "SUV" as an inflated car.

    Russia should also make other categories of SUVs to replace the Jeep Wrangler. The original Niva philosophy is the only
    valid one for SUVs. And it is clear by now that Russia can make any sort of car it chooses. Import substitution in the
    consumer automotive field should be a priority for the government.

    http://rusautonews.com/2018/05/20/ford-sollers-is-considering-gearbox-production-in-russia/


    TASS – Ford Sollers is exploring possibilities to launch gearbox production in Republic of Tatarstan in Russia. The relevant statement has been made by the chairman of the joint venture: Adil Shirinov to journalists.
    “Gearbox production is one of the requirements of the special investment contract (SPIC), which is currently being formulated by the Russian Ministry of Industry and Commerce, in cooperation with the players of the market willing to develop their operations in the market.  Upon completion, the conditions will be regulated by the SPIC, to be followed by individual agreements with each of the companies. Where – the question is straightforward for me, here, in Tatarstan ” – Shirinov said.

    May 27, 2018


    RNS – The joint venture of Sollers and Mazda on the assembly of Mazda vehicles in Vladivostok plans to start petrol engine production in mid-September 2018, as stated by the co-owner and the CEO of Sollers: Vadim Shvetsov in the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
    “We will start the production in mid-September. The launch will take 2-3 months: prototypes, tests etc.” – said Shvetsov, in reply to questions about the production of petrol engines for Mazda.
    As explained by Shvetsov, the ramp up takes up to three months for engine plants. “We won’t push our limits. Not a single engine will be sold in Russia. All production is aimed for exports” – Shvetsov said.
    Previously, the joint venture of Mazda and Sollers has obtained residential status in the Nadezhdinskaya Territory of Advanced Development (TAP) for the organisation of the production of Mazda SkyActiv-G engines.
    The residential status in the TAP has enabled the joint venture to increase the amount of investment in the project from 2 billion to 3 billion rubles.
    The annual engine production capacity of the project is 50,000 units.

    http://rusautonews.com/2018/05/31/isuzu-sollers-has-signed-a-contract-on-a-technological-partnership-project/

    RusAutoNews.Com – As reported by the Sollers press office, the joint venture Isuzu Sollers has signed a special investment contract with the Russian Ministry of Industry and Commerce and Ulyanovsk Region for the implementation of a technical partnership project in Russia. The partnership will work on the creation of a new joint product in the medium-tonnage trucks segment and exports of the vehicles through the worldwide distribution network of Isuzu.
    The total amount of investment in the project exceeds 6 billion rubles, including the 1.3 billion to be spent on research and development. The production within the scope of the joint venture is planned to start in 2021 at the new facilities, which will be built in Ulyanovsk. The localisation rate is expected to go over 80% through the implementation of the project, taking into account the localisation of engines, gearboxes, frames, electronic engine management systems, ADAS systems and other components.
    Along with the localisation of the actual nodes and components, local castings and Russian production materials will be used within the framework of the project. In the course of project implementation, the parties intend to make additional investments in new technology, related to the development of gas engine vehicles and hybrid power plants using electric traction, as well as in autonomous control technology and software for telematic services.

    Its look like things are going quite well for Russia car industry.
