The source writes that AvtoVAZ is already working on the Lada Xray New Generation, a new generation of the Lada Xray crossover, which will become a simplified modification of the Niva 3 for urban use.
This information was shared by drom.ru with reference to a source from AvtoVAZ, which is designing a new generation of Lada Xray. The source adds that the official start of production of the new model will take place at the end of 2025 or at the beginning of 2026.
It is not yet known whether AvtoVAZ will keep the name Lada Xray. It is reported that Niva 3 and Lada XRay New Generation will be built on a new separate platform, the name of which has not yet appeared anywhere. In the factory documentation, it passes as the Renault X13. This is an all-wheel drive version of the CMF B-LS platform, designed specifically for AvtoVAZ vehicles. At the same time, the platform will retain the transverse layout of the power unit.
The new generation Lada Xray will receive a CVT, while the car will be available in both all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive versions.
Despite the fact that the project is almost ready, the construction and design of the Lada XRay New Generation has not been finally approved.
