It has become known who will be responsible for the development of new Lada models

The post of chief designer of AVTOVAZ was taken by 57-year-old Sergey Amanov, who has worked at the company since 1989, Obozreniye reports. Since 2014, Amanov has been responsible for the development, fine-tuning and organization of car production. He is responsible for launching all the latest AVTOVAZ models – Vesta, XRAY, Granta modifications.

In 2018 he led a supplier development project and in 2020 he was awarded for his services to the Togliatti district. Amanov’s appointment has already been confirmed by the AVTOVAZ press service, the source said.

Amanov began his career as a research engineer at the scientific and technical center of AVTOVAZ and in recent years led the launch of models into production

It can be assumed that this personnel decision, which has already received a lot of publicity through the media, returns the position of chief designer to an important role in the administrative apparatus of AVTOVAZ. In the 2000s, when the Russian car giant started collaborating with Renault-Nissan, the position of chief designer was leveled for several years.

On the other hand, in the Soviet years, the chief designer was the third most important official in the factory – after the general and technical directors. According to unofficial data, after the departure of the French managers and the emergence of new top managers, AVTOVAZ will return to this system to some extent.

  • Recall that in May the post of vice president of engineering was taken by Evgeny Shmelev, Maxim Sokolov was appointed president, and Denis Manturov headed the board of directors of AVTOVAZ.
