The first samples of Valdai NEXT were assembled at the Gorky Automobile Plant


The first units of the new generation medium-duty truck “Valdai NEXT” came off the assembly line of the Gorky Automobile Plant. According to the press service of the enterprise, the pilot samples are intended for testing the production processes and conducting trial operation in real conditions. Serial production of new items is scheduled for autumn 2020.

The new city truck "Valdai NEXT" with a gross weight of 6.7 t will take a place between the "heavy" modifications of GAZelle NEXT with a gross weight of 4.6 t and a medium-duty truck "GAZon NEXT" (gross weight from 8.7 t). This reduction in vehicle size will provide a minimum turning radius, maneuverability and maximum efficiency in the use of cargo space. The car will be equipped with a new six-speed gearbox developed by GAZ. In combination with the Cummins ISF 2.8 diesel engine, this allowed to reduce fuel consumption and ensure the transmission of high (up to 360 Nm) torque.

The vehicle is equipped with a pneumatic braking system with disc brakes on all wheels, integral steering, a wide range of electronic driver assistance systems, including: ABS (anti-lock braking system), EBD (brake force distribution system), ESP (stability control system). The comfortable and ergonomic cab is equipped with a heating system with electrically adjustable and electrically heated mirrors, LED running lights. Optionally, the car will be equipped with air conditioning, pre-heater and roof fairing. The main direction of use of Valdai NEXT is an urban delivery van. In addition, various variants of special equipment for municipal services will be produced on its basis. The high degree of unification of the car with the "older" line of GAZon NEXT trucks will reduce costs for customers who operate different models of GAZ vehicles.

As AUTOSTAT reported earlier, the GAZ brand remains the leader of the Russian market of light commercial vehicles in the first half of 2020. Its share was 45% of the total number of purchased cars in the LCV segment, or 19.2 thousand units – lower by 14% than in the same period in 2019.
