Now the first batch of cars is being purchased for testing and certification, RIA Novosti writes with reference to the head of AvtoVAZ Maxim Sokolov. Ladami, according to Sokolov, became interested in a dealership on the central automobile street in Dubai. Certification takes a lot of time, but sales could start this year, Sokolov said. Almost the entire model range will be presented in the Emirates – from Niva Travel to Aura.

Previous certificates obtained under Renault, a former shareholder of AvtoVAZ, are no longer suitable, Sokolov notes. Since many components have been changed, all tests have to be done again. This applies to the entire line, including Largus, which is now assembled in Izhevsk using imported parts.

At the last St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Sokolov said that almost the entire Lada model range will be presented at the Dubai Motor Show: Niva Travel, Granta, Vesta and Largus. Aura will also appear there, which will begin to be assembled in Tolyatti in the fall of 2024. However, the recently introduced Lada Iskra is not on this list.

What were Ladas called abroad? The head of AvtoVAZ named the target audience of the new Lada Iskra. The head of AvtoVAZ Sokolov: the plant does not use targeted state support

The budget model, designed to eventually replace the Lada Granta, should go on sale in Russia in the first quarter of 2025. The preliminary cost of the new product, aimed at young people, is from one to 1.2 million rubles.

Meanwhile, a plant for Lada assembly is being built in Egypt. According to RIA Novosti, the enterprise is being built in the city of Tarbul. It should open next year, the capacity will be from 50 to 70 thousand cars per year.
