Yesterday at AvtoVAZ ended the last working day before a rather long downtime: the company will not work until May 10.
“The last working day at VAZ in April has ended, the conveyors will be idle until May 10, the time has come for the May holidays and the first part of the corporate vacation for the team. Today, 370 Grantas rolled off line 5 during an eight-hour shift (originally planned to be 12 hours). About two hundred and eighty cars of the Niva family also left line number three in 8 hours”, – wrote the insider public Avtograd News. Despite the fact that the vacation is corporate, it is not planned: it was originally planned for the end of July, but due to a lack of components, it was decided to postpone it to May.
And although AvtoVAZ will not work in the first ten days of May, it will be a busy time for the enterprise, as the company announces prices and equipment for Lada Vesta NG, and shipments to dealers can begin as early as May 4. Earlier AvtoVAZ stated that Vesta will be much cheaper than 1.7 million rubles.
Also, according to Avtograd News, Granta with 16-valve engines is in short supply. A few days ago, AvtoVAZ announced the start of sales of such cars, but the Lada-Service dealer in Togliatti said that such cars would appear on sale only in 2-3 weeks. “The official dealer of Lada in Tolyatti is the company Lada-Service. VAZ employees also receive cars here under preferential corporate programs, the main site is empty, for two other cars at a minimum, according to the manager, there are no Granta cars with a 16-valve engine for sale, they may appear in 2-3 weeks. The fulfillment of the requests of the factory workers is shifted by a month, two, especially according to the Grant. With the color palette, too, nothing comforting is expected.“, – writes the public.
