AVTOVAZ will manufacture LADA cars without electronic components


 

RusAutoNews.- Avtovaz is preparing to launch special versions of Lada Granta, Niva and Vesta models which will be less affected by imported electronic components, as reported by Autostat.

Largus and Xray are not planned to be changed, since they are built on the Renault-Nissan B0 platform and are tied to Renault suppliers.

The first model which will enter the market is Granta, without ABS, ESP, airbags and the ERA-GLONASS emergency communication system. In addition, the model will lose its oxygen sensors in the exhaust system, dropping the environmental level from Euro-5 to Euro-2 standards. The engine control unit and its firmware will become simpler.

The pool of Renault suppliers for Granta will be replaced by Russian ones. Company’s import share of car components is around 20%.
