AvtoVAZ has started production of simplified models

Volzhsky Automobile Plant is looking for opportunities to continue producing cars in the face of a shortage of electronic components and ongoing interruptions in the supply of some components. According to information that has appeared on the network, the car giant may soon still start producing the Niva SUV without anti-lock braking system.

From March 28 to March 30, 510 Niva commercial vehicles were assembled, 20 of them without ABS, Avtograd News writes. Reportedly, 10 of these cars are Niva Travel, another 10 are Niva Legend. Such a simplified modification requires assembled machines to pass the certification process.

The declared batch, according to these data, was the last produced before the company holiday – there are no more bodies on the conveyor belt, the staff “has been sent home”. Recall that the official company holiday at AVTOVAZ was postponed from July-August to an earlier date, from April 4 to 24. It is believed that this will allow the company to create some reserve for scarce components.

Recall that the anti-lock braking system has been installed on domestic SUVs for more than 10 years – on Lada 4x4M and Chevrolet Niva cars (now Lada Niva Legend and Lada Niva Travel, respectively), it appeared in 2010-2011.

In an interview with the publication “Behind the wheel”, a representative of the press service of AVTOVAZ did not confirm, but also did not refute the information about the production of cars without anti-lock braking system.

  • A little over a week ago, the AVTOVAZ press service called fake data that appeared on the network about the preparation for the production of cars without ABS.
  • “Driving” can be read in Viber.
