New Volga and Pobeda – the first information about cars

The names Volga and Pobeda can be given a new lease of life, and with regard to cars – such development of events was allowed by the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.

Colleagues have plans to revive the Volga or Pobeda brand, for example, or both,” RBC quotes Denis Manturov as saying.

It can be assumed that Manturov understands the leadership of the GAZ group as colleagues, but in response to an enlightening question about the place for the implementation of these projects, the minister said that there may even be multiple locations. Although initially both the Volga and the Pobeda are the brainchild of the Gorky Automobile Plant.

GAZ-M-20 Pobeda was produced in Nizhny Novgorod from 1946 to 1958. In recent years – already in parallel with the new model of that time, the GAZ-21 Volga. In 1967, the Volga changed generations, the GAZ-24 appeared. The subsequent Volga was, in fact, a modernization of this model – GAZ-24-10, GAZ-3102, GAZ-31029, GAZ-3110.

GAZ-3111 was developed by computer simulation and such a production car would feel quite modern today. Perhaps this circumstance contributes to regular rumors about the supposedly imminent revival of the project.

The fundamentally new GAZ-3103/3104/3105 family was developed too long, as a result of which only 55 units of the GAZ-3105 were produced from 1992 to 1996. Another attempt was made in 1998 – at the MIMS motor show, GAZ showed the prototype GAZ-3111, but from 2000 to 2002 only 417 cars were produced. Now each of them is a collector’s item.

Production of the Volga Siber, a licensed Chrysler Sebring, began in 2008. However, the model did not gain popularity, and since 2010 GAZ has been producing only commercial vehicles. What will be the new attempt to revive the Volga, only time will tell.

  • By the way, in 2021 GAZ used the name Pobeda in a special series of low-floor buses from GAZelle City, but then the press service said that the GAZ Group will keep this name “for a future breakthrough project”.
