AvtoVAZ has stopped production of Lada 4×4 due to lack of seats


On July 9 “AvtoVAZ” has stopped production of SUV Lada 4×4 in both 3-door and 5-door variants, reports the “Izvestia” newspaper, citing sources in the auto maker.

Problems with seats supplies have begun because of stopping of the main supplier’s production, which is “AvtoVAZagregat.” It stopped production on July 8, and all the workers were put at a paid leave till July 26.

Meanwhile, automotive industry analyst Ivan Bonchev believes that disruptions in supply could delay the start of production of new AvtoVAZ product, Lada Vesta, scheduled for the end of September.
