AVTOVAZ RESUMED PRODUCTION OF THE LADA NIVA LEGEND
July 13, 2022
AVTOVAZ resumes production of the three-door LADA NIVA Legend SUV in the new trim level of 2022 model year. The first one will be the Classic’22 version developed to provide the maximum possible localization, excluding the influence of import components’ shortage.
The LADA NIVA Legend in the Classic’22 trim level features EPHS (electrically powered hydraulic steering), powerfold front windows, ISOFIX child seat mounts, daytime running lights, on-board computer, stamp-welded 16-inch steel wheels, steel shields under the engine, multimedia ready (antenna and wiring harness for two front speakers). The car is equipped with permanent 4WD system with the possibility of locking the interaxle differential and downshifting. This provides for the high off-road capability and makes the LADA NIVA Legend irreplaceable on the off-road. The price quotation for the new trim level will be more attractive and will be announced in the near-term.
Maksim Sokolov, President of “AVTOVAZ” JSC: “Production resumption of the second LADA model and the launch of another assembly line in the current difficult conditions is the real victory of the entire AVTOVAZ team. Affordable and the most popular Russian NIVA Legend SUVs in the special trim level, the price of which will be reduced, will be shipped to the dealerships already this week. I’m sure that the car will be in stable demand. The Company is going on to make every effort to resume production of all cars of the LADA lineup, actively working with suppliers from Russia and friendly countries”.
