Domestic auto giant challenges foreign companies of competitors.
According to the results of October of this year, the sales of Lada Vesta occurred — they collapsed from 10,668 to 8,296 cars. And the domestic model missed the Kia Rio forward. Sadly, but the fact. How will the domestic giant won the situation? Stas Berezius told about this, «Talking Head» AvtoVAZ.
Domestic auto giant challenges foreign companies of competitors. AvtoVAZ specialists have found a way to make Lada Vesta more popular: for all complete sets, including basic, will offer not only a manual box, but also a variator. The representative of the press service of the auto giant Stas Berezius was told on the TV channel VAZ TV.
He noted that thanks to such a strategy, buyers will be able to get an inexpensive two-week car, while Kia Rio and Hyundai Solaris (Kia Rio and Hyundai Solaris) stand from 850 thousand rubles.
In the near future, Lada Vesta will cease to establish domestic robotic AMT transmissions. Buyers will be able to choose between the traditional mechanical gearbox and variator. Now the robot of its own development accounts for only 9% of the total sales of this model.
As for the stepless transmission, then on Lada Xray Cross, the variator has already become a real hit — it accounts for approximately 60% of the sales of high hatchback! So, the two-week Vesta also has the chances of becoming popular.
Previously, AvtoVAZ offered from automatic transmission offered only a simple (with one clutch) robot worth 25,000 rubles, and for the Granta family, in addition, a classic 4-band jatco automatic machine is available. Recall that the crossover Xray Cross first among the LADA brand models is equipped with a variator.
Similar aggregates of the company Jatco have long been put on other models of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. The main feature of the transmission is available two-stage gearbox to facilitate the design and reduce the size. The variator is aggregated with 1,6-liter atmospheric HR-16 (113 hp).
It is quite simple to predict prices for variatorial «Vesta». With the VAZ engine 1.6 car costs from 606 900 rubles., And the Jatco variator and the Nissan motor will add 50,000 (such a proportion is valid for Xray Cross). This means that the starting machine can cost from 650 to 700 thousand rubles. True, the very first sold Lada Vesta, according to the network penetrated, cost its owner at 832 thousand rubles.
