The Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi will sell Lada 4×4 globally. This information was published by the Brazilian newspaper Gazeta do Povo, citing its own sources in the Alliance. The newspaper claims that the Alliance will not only sell in the Brazilian market, but also to establish Assembly in the enterprise Renault in the são josé DOS Pinhais, state of paraná.
By the way, Gazeta do Povo regarded as a leading authority you can trust, because in the state of paraná newspaper has the most readers among the media and is one of the oldest in Brazil.
In principle, the preparation of the Brazilian capacity of production of the new Lada 4×4 should not be big problems, because the SUV will be built on the platform of the Alliance – Global Access, which is already used in Renault Duster and Kaptur, who, incidentally, released on the aforementioned plant for the needs of the Brazilian market. Note that the second cross is sold in Brazil under the name Captur, but is a copy ofn, not European model.
Production of Lada 4×4 NG (New Generation) in our country should begin in 2021. It is expected that a prototype of the SUV of new generation will be presented this summer at the Moscow International motor show.
Recall the classic Lada Niva was sold in Brazil deliveries of the SUV was carried out from 1990 to 1997. First, the model sold well, but later the demand for it is gone. In Gazeta do Povo explain this decline in the quality of NIV in the mid 90’s and low corrosion resistance of the body and lack in the power range of the engine operating on E85 fuel (a mixture of gasoline (15%) and ethanol (85%)), which is in Brazil the most popular. In the new Lada 4×4, such a motor can be, because the structure of the power range will include a “Nissan” motor HR16, which had a version of the E85 market in Latin America.
Previously portal “Wheels.ru” reported that instead of the traditional SUV, which is Lada 4×4 of the current generation, after the change of generation model will be the crossover terrain.
