OREANDA-NEWS  The initial cost of Lada Vesta NG will be 1.2 million rubles, and the cars themselves will be delivered to dealers in the near future. This was reported to journalists in the press service of Avtovaz on Thursday.

"The initial price of the Lada Vesta sedan of the new generation in the comfort configuration will be 1,239,900 rubles. Since the restart of production, the necessary stock of more than 6.5 thousand cars has been released, which will soon begin to arrive in the Lada dealer network, numbering 308 salons," the company said in a statement.

Lada Vesta NG is equipped with LED optics front and rear, two airbags, ABS system, air conditioning and other options. "For the starting configuration, a choice of a 90 or 106-horsepower engine in tandem with a 5-speed manual transmission will be available. The list of additional complete sets and options of Lada Vesta will be announced at the time of the start of sales," the message clarifies.

At the beginning of March, the launch of serial production of the Lada Vesta NG model took place at the Avtovaz site in Togliatti. At the end of April, the head of the company Maxim Sokolov reported that sales of the car will begin in late May - early June. In November 2022, Avtovaz reported that it had assembled the first Lada Vesta NG test car. Earlier, production was moved from the Izhevsk site to the Tolyatti plant. This decision was made after the departure of Avtovaz's foreign partner from Russia and the decision to increase production. Avtovaz launched serial production of the updated Lada Vesta model at the Izhevsk plant in February 2022. But later the company suspended the production of all cars, including the updated Vesta due to problems with components.

Lada Vesta of the new generation is a car with a high level of localization, which, according to the scoring system, is from 4.5 thousand to 5 thousand points, depending on the modification.
