Partnership AvtoVAZ and Renault-Nissan alliance brings new benefits: in Togliatti started production of an experimental batch of Japanese cars.
We have found the pictures which show the process of the production test cars Nissan Almera, launched at AvtoVAZ just the other day. According to our source in the company, the assembly of Japanese cars is a special time — each accompanied by a copy of the pipeline "protection" of a few people, whose duty — to prevent attempts to photograph new cars.
Why such mistrust is not clear, given the fact that the appearance of Almeria, allegedly created specially for the Russian market, Nissan unveiled at the end of February.
But long before that it was known — in the guise of the new model delivers Nissan Almera Bluebird Sylphy, unreleased in Japan from 2005 to 2012. At first life car is equipped with 1.5 and 2-liter petrol motors, mechanical, automatic and CVT transmissions, front and all wheel drive. Hardly sedan will retain such a variety of modifications in the Russian specification. Most likely, the Russians will offer only those versions, which are estimated to marketers, have the greatest chance of commercial success.
It is important to note that the Bluebird Sylphy aka "the new Almera" is built on the platform Loganovsky B0, respectively, produced in line with the technological cousin — wagon Lada Largus.
Officially, all the information about the new product vazovskuyu will be presented at the end of August — at the debut of the car at the motor show in Moscow. Home sales is scheduled for November.
