The Lada brand managed by AvtoVAZ Group is celebrating the production of its 50,000th unit of the new Vesta at the Russian plant in Izhevsk.The anniversary vehicle is the most equipped version coloured with Blu Metallic colour.The milestone was achieved one year after the production start and during these 12 months Vesta has climbed the ranking...
The AvtoVaz Group will shortly launch a Russian version of the Lada Niva equipped with a diesel engine.According to the Russian press the engine could be the 1.3-liter Multijet made by Fiat that, thanks to lower costs, it would be preferred to the Renault's 1.5 diesel engine. This engine will produce about 85 CV.
The severe crisis in the Russian market penalizes also the leader AvtoVaz and its historic brand Lada.
According to the Interfax news agency, quoting the new Chief Executive Officer Bo Andersson, Lada sales in Russia could fall 20.5 percent year-on-year for a total of 425,000 units.
