According to the interlocutor of the agency, it is impossible to launch all versions of models at once, and, in the case of Russia, it was decided to start production with the most “rich” configuration. With the advent of more affordable designs, the starting price will decline. Volodin emphasized that only cars of local assembly will become cheaper. This will not affect imported models, since there’s no point in going to the lower price range.
While Opel collects only one model in Russia – minivan Zafira Life (turned Peugeot Traveler), which costs from 2,549,900 rubles. But already in the first quarter of 2020, the production of the Vivaro van will begin. In addition, the Grandland X crossover previously shared the platform with the Citroen C5 Aircross and Peugeot 3008/5008. Deliveries are made from Germany, and prices start from 1,799,000 rubles.
