In 2020, it is planned to release "Russian Prado" at the UAZ


The Ulyanovsk plant plans to launch a new SUV, pick-up, mono-cab and van truck on the conveyor on the basis of the Toyota-class Class platform. It will happen no later than 2020, write RIA Novosti, referring to the statement of the General director and owner of Sollers, Vadim Shvetsov.

Interestingly that there won’t be relation to the now assembled at the plant "Hunter" and "Loaf". This is a completely new units and new technical solutions. So, Mr. Shvetsov told reporters that the family of engines for the new line of vehicles has already been developed jointly with the German company FEV. These are four-cylinder petrol and gas (bi-fuel) engines.

In the stage of preparation for launch at the Zavolzhsky Automobile Plant, there is the budget version of the atmospheric engine (mainly for commercial vehicles) and the more expensive turbo charged engine for active driving. Despite the partly German origin, it will be the Russian engine, which is planned to be localized in 2020–2021. As for the off-road version, then a certain period of time - obviously, not very long - the new product will be assembled at the plant along with the “Hunter” and the “Patriot”, but the focus will be on the release of a new model. In the future, the CEO of Sollers believes, the old model range will be gradually “washed out”.

“Patriot”, most likely, will go down in history, and “Hunter” will remain a kind of niche product - for fans who value its design and appearance. It will be appropriate to recall that since the beginning of the year, UAZ dealers have sold, as already reported AUTOSTAT, 164 Hunter and 1432 Patriot vehicles. Taking into account the participation of foreign engineering in technical developments, the price of the new “Russian Prado” will be not less than the price of Chinese off-road vehicles. As suggested the CEO of Sollers, it is about the price of 1.5 million rubles. Recall that today the prices for UAZ Hunter start at 654,800 rubles, and UAZ Patriot can be purchased for at least 751,500 rubles.
