"AvtoVAZ" is considering launching bi-fuel production car based on the Lada Granta in early 2013. "The whole process has been developed dual-fuel car model Lada Priora, but given that the life of Lada Priora in two years is over, we are now taking all the developments on the car Lada Granta», — said Head of vehicles with alternative power plants, "AvtoVAZ" Sergey Ivlev during the V Interregional Economic Forum in Samara.
"We plan to start with 5,000 vehicles to further increase production to 25,000 cars," — said Ivlev. He also added that "Gazprom" plans to double the number of gas stations in 2016-2017 years, told "Interfax".
"AvtoVAZ" has developed a dual-fuel car Lada Priora CNG Plus, which will run on both petrol and gas. Prototypes were produced in sedan and wagon. But later the plant began to consider the possibility of creating a bi-fuel vehicle based on the new budget model Lada Granta.
