Russian dealers of GAZ began to receive the first batch of Sobol NN all-metal vans from the Gorky Automobile Plant. Soon, in car dealerships where the domestic brand is presented, it will be possible to purchase a new model in cargo and passenger-and-freight modifications.
Modifications of GAZ Sobol NN vans received by dealers are equipped with a 150-horsepower Cummins diesel turbo engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Interestingly, the first batch is offered in just one color – dark cherry.
One of the main features of GAZ Sobol NN vans is the new Spicer-type lean-to axle, which made it possible to reduce the size of the wheel arches and increase the volume of the body. The cargo version of the van is now designed for a maximum of 9 cubic meters of cargo. As for the cargo-passenger modification, it can accommodate up to seven people – one driver and six passengers.
The cost of GAZ Sobol NN vans is still unknown. It will be announced closer to the start of sales, which is scheduled for next week. It is expected that prices for the new GAZ model may start at 2.5 million rubles.
