On February 7 and 8, AvtoVAZ introduces an idle mode on production lines where cars are assembled based on the B0 of the Renault – Nissan alliance. This is with reference to the trade union of the Volga Automobile Plant AFM Vedomosti.
Thus, on February 7 and 8, Lada XRay hatchbacks and Largus station wagons, as well as Renault Logan sedans and Renault Sandero hatchbacks (including their Cross versions) will not go off the assembly line.
According to the source of Vedomosti, the downtime is due to lower demand for these cars than previously thought. For the same reason, the lines on which the Lada Granta and Datsun models are launched were stopped on January 9 and 10, and the production of the Lada 4×4 SUV was suspended on January 18 and 25.
