GAZ has presented "GAZelle Next" with diesel engine Volkswagen


The Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ), within an international exhibition in Hanover, presented for the first time an updated model of a light commercial vehicle "GAZelle Next" with a diesel engine of the ecological standard "Euro-6", a 6-speed gearbox, airbags and an ESP system.

According to the press service of GAZ, the vehicle is equipped with a diesel engine produced by Volkswagen and a new 6-speed gearbox - the own development of the Gorky Automobile Plant. Constructive changes allowed the reduction of the fuel consumption by 10%, reduction of noise and vibration, improving of traction and dynamic characteristics.

Compact diesel engine with a capacity of 2.0 liters with turbo charging and common rail injection system develops power up to 136 hp. The maximum torque of 340 Nm is achieved at the most demanded range of 1600-2250 rpm.

The new 6-speed transmission is able to transmit torque up to 450 Nm and provides a high service life, precise switching and low noise and vibration. The vehicle is presented at the exhibition in Hanover in two versions: a chassis designed for the installation of special superstructures, and an all-metal van. Unlike the current model, which is traditionally produced with a double-hanging rear axle, the all-metal van "GAZelle Next" is presented at first in a version with a single-pitched bus. Such modifications are planned for a number of export markets.

As previously reported "AUTOSTAT", in June of 2017 the company Volkswagen Group Rus and "GAZ Group" signed an agreement on expanding of cooperation, within which "GAZ Group" in 2019 will equip GAZ vehicles with Volkswagen TDI 2.0 engines delivered from the plant in Salzgitter (Germany). The project provides for the supply of more than 200 thousand such engines within five years.
