AvtoVAZ announced the approximate dates for the start of production of cars on alternative fuels of the future, including hybrid engines and electric accumulators. The plans of the concern were told by its head Nicolas Maure, who is quoted by TASS…
“We are moving to a new platform that will enable the production of gasoline, methane, hybrids and all-electric vehicles by 2027–2028,” Mor said.
He also touched upon the capabilities of the Lada Vesta CNG model, produced since 2017. It can use gasoline and methane as fuel.
Former head of AvtoVAZ, Yves Caracatzanis, said the company would not manufacture electric vehicles until they become available in Russia.
In May 2021, the AvtoVAZ management announced that it was not going to compete with Tesla. These words followed the speech of the founder of the American company, Elon Musk, in which he allowed the opening of production in Russia.
