AvtoVAZ President Maxim Sokolov in an interview with RIA Novosti confirmed plans to release a completely new Lada crossover based on the Lada Vesta sedan. He stated that its production is planned in the medium term.
After the approval of the new AvtoVAZ strategy, we will actively begin to develop new products. First, on the basis of our domestic AvtoVAZ platform Vesta, and here our aspirations – I will reveal secrets in small strokes – will be directed towards crossovers. This model range is today the most demanded among buyers. I am sure that in the medium term we have every opportunity to refine the Vesta model and release a crossover based on it.
