In Russia, the production of new Toyota RAV4 was started


At the Toyota plant in St. Petersburg on November 6th, the official launch of the production of new generation Toyota RAV4 crossover took place. Since the foundation of Toyota Motor in Russia in 2002, more than 370 thousand cars of this model have been sold in the country, about 100 thousand of which were produced in St. Petersburg.

According to the press service of Toyota Motor, the technological changes of the fifth generation Toyota RAV4 required a significant change in the production process. Automation of production has grown. With the transition to the global TNGA architecture, 133 robots were installed, which permitted to increase the percentage of work performed without operator from 56 to 67% in the welding workshop.

At the same time, more than 100 karakuri mechanisms have been introduced, providing a high-performance technological process. Part of the mounted parts of Toyota RAV4 is now made of aluminum, which, in particular, can improve the dynamics of the car and reduce fuel consumption.

In addition, by preparing for the launch of the new generation Toyota RAV4, Toyota Motor has expanded its cooperation with Russian local suppliers. Investments in the modernization of workshops for the project reached 4.8 billion rubles (as of September 2019). For the whole history of Toyota plant in St. Petersburg, more than 30 billion rubles have been invested in the development of production.

Recall, on October 30th, Russian Toyota dealers began sales of the fifth generation Toyota RAV4 crossover. Prices for a new item in the Standard basic configuration start from 1 million 756 thousand rubles for the front-wheel drive version with a 2.0-liter engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The price of the top-of-the-line Prestige Safety configuration, equipped with a 2.5 liter engine paired with an 8-band automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, is 2 million 661 thousand rubles. In the fifth generation, Toyota RAV4 received a more aggressive off-road design, which, in particular, is distinguished by massive plastic lining in the lower part of body and developed wheel arches of complex geometry.

Already in the basic configuration, the crossover has LED optics, and for the first time in Russian history, 19-inch wheels are available for the model RAV4. As AUTOSTAT previously reported, for the first 9 months of 2019, Toyota RAV4 sold 21,270 cars in the Russian market, which is 9% lower in compare with the same period of the previous year.
