Speaking at the Transport Week 2022 forum today, AvtoVAZ head Maxim Sokolov said that the company is considering creating Lada models with a new all-wheel drive system. True, such cars will not appear soon.
“This is one of the fundamental elements of technological sovereignty that we have talked about so much. Considering how much we see demand today in a number of models, all-wheel drive, of course, is necessary for our auto industry and AvtoVAZ models in particular. This really needs to be done, but also not a quick moment. It just fits into the time lag of three or four years, which I spoke about, and requires considerable investments: also within 30 billion rubles“, – he said.
The first contender for such an all-wheel drive system is a crossover based on Vesta, its appearance is predicted just in the future of 3-4 years.
