In Togliatti ZETTA electric vehicles are being prepared for the mass production


On May 20th, a number of automotive media reported that AVTOVAZ was preparing for mass production of compact city electric cars ZETTA and the serial launch was planned already in 2019. Meanwhile, as it became known by AUTOSTAT, electric cars are planned to be produced in Togliatti, but it doesn’t concern the production site of AVTOVAZ. For ZETTA, there were created its own production facilities, remote geographically from the conveyor of the automotive giant. ZETTA has an independent management (Denis Schurovsky, general director of ZETTA LLC) and its own production and sales plans.

According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, referring to the commentary received by Denis Shchurovsky, at the moment, the work is underway to equip the conveyor and by the end of the year everything will be ready for mass production of electric cars. For a group of companies, the project of assembly of compact city cars, localized by 50% in Russia, is not the main business. Specialists of the engineering building work in projects for the Indian market and the military-industrial complex of our country.

As for the production volumes, Mr. Shchurovsky promised that 10 cars would come off the assembly line in 2019, 2 thousand units in 2020, and in the foreseeable future, the planned capacity will be 15 thousand electric vehicles per a year. With regard to the characteristics of the car, a version with a three-door layout and dimensions of 1600x3030x1760 mm is being prepared for the production. The car will have a boot of 180 liters and four full seats. The suspension was developed on the basis of the eighth and tenth LADA family. The drive can be front wheel drive or all-wheel drive - depending on the configuration. Battery will be Chinese (from GE Power Technology), with a capacity of 10-32 kW / h. Mileage on a single charge is expected to be from 200 to 560 km. The developers promise that with all this technical equipment the electric car will be able to reach a speed of 120 km / h. ZETTA will have keyless access and it is equipped with ABS and ESP systems, heater, air conditioning.

It is understood that the main control of electric vehicles is carried out using a tablet integrated into the dashboard. In the development of the company there are versions for people with disabilities that allow you to drive into the car directly in a wheelchair through the back door and drive the car - with the power of thought (it will read brain signals).
