“This year we are doing our best to produce the first experimental batch at the end of 2023, we will launch the series at the beginning of 2024 and again we will focus on demand, because it is clear that today electric vehicles are expensive due to their component base. , in the first stage of batteries, and as many as the market will demand – ten thousand, that is, we are going to produce ten thousand, if we need more – we are going to produce more, the market is not going to give an adequate answer to answer for the price depending on the cost, well, that means we will screw it up a bit, “said the head of the company from the ceremony of launching the mass production of the new Lada Vesta at the Togliatti plant.
Sokolov also confirmed that the Lada e-Largus will be a highly localized product: “It will be our domestic car in the full sense of the word. Cars produced at those factories whose shareholders left our country do not even come close to this bar.” This (e-Largus – approx. “RG”) will be our domestic car with the maximum number of points, and we will not even be two heads above its competitors in terms of electromobility location, but several dozen steps ahead.”
AvtoVAZ talked about the characteristics of the electric Largus at the end of last year, showing a prototype and its interior, which will have some differences from the model with an internal combustion engine.
As for the regular Lada Largus, its restart is planned for autumn 2023. The president of AvtoVAZ promised that the company would work seven days a week to meet market demands.
