During the pause, the company will conduct scheduled maintenance and preventive maintenance of equipment, informed the press service of AVTOVAZ. In addition, it will be made "a complex of works on preparation will be executed for the production of LADA Vesta SW estate car and its motocross version of LADA Vesta SW Cross". In particular, the plant upgraded the equipment for assembly, plastic molding and painting accessories, and perform the adjustment of the robots under the new model, writes "Rossiyskaya Gazeta".

However, the exact timing is not named, and it is possible that the production of conventional estate cars will be launched in July, and motocross - in September, as recently reported by sources in the enterprise.
