LADA West Togliatti enterprise has begun the production of Niva SUVs under the LADA brand. The radiator closer and steering wheel are now adorned with the LADA logo of a three-dimensional boat, the AvtoVAZ press service reports. Recall that Niva (2123) is a development of AvtoVAZ and its production began in 2000 under the brand name LADA. Two years later, the model began to be produced under the Chevrolet brand at the joint venture GM-AvtoVAZ. The main components - body, chassis, power unit - were produced at AvtoVAZ's facilities, and painting and final assembly were organized at the partner production site. In total, more than 700 thousand Niva SUVs have been manufactured to date.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, in December of 2019, AvtoVAZ closed a deal to repurchase a 50% stake in the GM-AvtoVAZ Togliatti JV from the American company General Motors. Thus, the production site, later renamed “LADA West Togliatti”, became 100% owned by AvtoVAZ, and the Niva model returned to the LADA product portfolio.

According to Olivier Morne, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AvtoVAZ, Niva becomes the second all-wheel drive SUV in the LADA family. The company intends to develop further its sales, which are now organized in the largest dealer network in Russia, with more than 300 sales and service centers. Meanwhile, sales of Niva SUVs have already begun at some official LADA dealerships since February of 2020. According to the results of the first half of the year, 8,027 of such cars were sold in the Russian market, which allowed Niva to enter the TOP-25 of the best-selling models in our country.
