Avtovaz starts production of Lada Granta with airbags


 

RusAutoNews.- Avtovaz has resumed production of the Lada Granta model with driver and passenger airbags, as annouced by the company press office.

Starting from August 23, all 2022 model Grantas are equipped with a driver’s airbag from the basic configuration. The design and settings of the security system, as well as the steering wheel with an airbag, are similar to those used in the past.

Maxim Sokolov, President of Avtovaz has stated: “Resuming the car production with airbags, despite the electronic components shortage and the sanctions, is a real victory for the entire Avtovaz team and our partners. Customer care is a top priority for the Lada brand. We will add other comfort and safety features to our vehicles in the shortest time. I also thank the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia for the state preferential loan program, which allows people to buy Lada cars at a profit of 20-25%. This significantly strengthens market demand and ensures stable operation of the plant.
