GAZ Group invested over RUB 5 billion in the pre-production of “GAZel Next”


Gazelle NEXT.jpgGAZ Group invested over RUB 5 billion in the pre-production of “GAZel Next”. There were installed in particular a new automated welding line, new test facilities and test equipment in GAZ. Let us recall that the premiere of “GAZel Next” was in Moscow international motor show in August of 2012.

As the president of GAZ Group, Boo Andersson, reported at the beginning of February, it was released 150 GAZel Next vehicles at that time, which were delivered for loyal clients for consumer testing. The serial production of “GAZel” vehicles of new generation will be launched in March of this year. According to Mr. Andersson, the start price of “GAZel Next” will be RUB 699,000.

“GAZel Next”, which was equipped with engine Cummins ISF 2,8, corresponds to ecologic standards Euro-4 with the possibility of bringing to Euro-5 and Euro-6 standards. According to Mr. Andersson, it opens new export possibilities for a company.

According to Mr. Andersson, “GAZel Next” was designed by engineers of GAZ based on a thorough study of consumer views and the use of advanced components of leading manufacturers. At the same time Mr. Andersson was confident that drivers of “GAZel Next” will measure the improved ergonomics and reliability of vehicle and passengers will like the enhanced comfort and safety. In addition, owners of “GAZel Next” will have a benefit due to increased vehicle resources and low price of service. Maintenance intervals for “GAZel Next” vehicles were increased to 20,000 km and warranty grew to 3 years or 150,000 km of run. 

According to GAZ Group, the independent front suspension and steering system with a rack and pinion mechanism provide “GAZel Next” with ride, stability and steering precision that correspond to passenger car indicators. And new brake system permits to decrease the stopping distance and also to apply modern electronic systems of active safety: ESP (electronic stability program), ASR (traction control) and ABS of ninth generation. The ergonomics of vehicles was improved due to the new increased cabin – the range of adjustments of driver’s seat was increased, visibility was improved, noises and vibrations were reduced. It is worth nothing that “GAZel Next” was designed with account of installing of fully functional passive system, including air bags of a driver and passengers, pretensioners and other options.
