LADA is returning to Cuba

RusAutoNews.Com – LADA is returning to Cuba, as reported by the Avtovaz press office. The first lot formed of 344 LADA Vesta and LADA Largus Cross automobiles are on their way to Cuba. The LADA models will arrive in Cuba in January 2018 and will be used by local government taxi services and rental and touristic companies.

The supply of the vehicles to Cuba will be carried out with the assistance of VEB, the financial provider of the transaction, along with the Russian Export Centre, which supports the development of export partnerships of Russian producers with foreign partners.

The growth of exports is one of the main tasks AVTOVAZ will tackle in its medium-term development plan. “Cuba is one of our priority export markets, amongst other Latin American countries” – said the chairman of AVTOVAZ: Nicolas Maure. “The country remembers and respects the LADA brand. It’s still possible to come across a significant number of classic LADA and LADA 4×4 models on the roads of Cuba and we are ready to resume our presence in the country with our modern LADA Vesta and LADA Largus Cross automobiles. Our vehicles meet the world quality standards and are perfectly adapted to local tasks and conditions. For our part, we will guarantee the training of Cuban specialists for after-sales services and the availability of spare parts. We appreciate the support of the Cuban and Russian governments, the Russian Export Centre and VEB for the deal and expect to continue supplying automobiles to Cuba in growing numbers in the forthcoming years”.
