“Niva” VAZ-2121 and it’s versions

In my opinion, a name of this car – not simply certain name on «agricultural motives». NIVA is an abbreviation, (so as any abbreviation, to be written it should exclusively capital letters), meaning neither it is a lot of nor a little, and «the Best Invention of the Volga Car factory»! And, by the way, it is valid so. Cars, with a minimum of constructional changes endured on the conveyor, all over the world it is possible to count quarter-century anniversary on fingers. The majority turns to moral stuff where faster. And “NIVA” and remains today claimed by buyers. Moreover, it is enough to open any newspaper of announcements, and it will be found out that “NIVA” also the most popular off-road car in the secondary market…

Lada Niva 2121

In April, 1977 the Volga car factory has made the present revolution. Its new model, VAZ-2121 “Niva”, practically had no analogues in practice of world automotive industry! It today the scheme with a spring suspender, a constant all wheel drive and an integral body is perceived as norm for a compact off-road car. And in the late seventies all it was opening. The new off-road car has appeared is practical, komfortabelen and is cheap. Such set of qualities earlier had no any car with the formula 4х4. The majority of go-anywhere vehicles of those years were utilitarian vehicles with the military past. The constant all wheel drive and high-grade rideable comfort actually could offer only Range Rover, appeared six years earlier. But absolutely other dimensions, weight, frame presence, and the main thing, a price niche did not allow to speak about any imitation from outside “vazovtsev”. Yes, comfortable off-road cars those years existed, but among models with a connected drive gear: Exclusive magnificent cars like Monteverdi and expensive versions of “Americans” altered from pickups. But it was absolutely other way of development. “Niva” stood independently. Actually it has based absolutely new class of go-anywhere vehicles.

No other Russian car and close had such success on international scene. Demands came to “Autoexport” from the most different corners of globe. There were also two special export versions: VAZ-21211 with the 1.3-litre motor (for the countries with expensive fuel and heavy taxes on engine volume) and VAZ-21212 with the right wheel. Last, by the way, used very good demand in England.

The base version for home market was initially completed with the engine with carburettor VAZ-2121 in volume of 1.6 l with chain drive gear GRM. Actually it was “the sixth” motor (the most powerful in “Zhigulevsk” scale) with a crankcase oil pan, allowing to place under it a reducer of the front bridge. But at all simplicity, unpretentiousness and reliability the given power unit had one lack essential to the go-anywhere vehicle – the peak of a twisting moment considerably shifted towards high turns. It did not allow to take heavy sites vnatjag. But thanks to a proper correlation of capacity and weights the car was capable to “fly by” effectively a course obviously zasadnye sites.

Complete with the 1.6-litre engine on “Niva” it was established standard four-stage KP. The main steams at first were applied To increase in traction qualities with number 4,44. But less than a year later them have replaced on 4,3, and in the mid-eighties for the sake of increase in profitability and have at all stopped on 4,1. In such kind “Niva” also has existed till 1994. Then the car has undergone the most serious modernisation for all history.

Within 1994 the huge number of transitive versions with various indexes has been exhausted, but the version VAZ-21213 with the engine with carburettor of 1.7 l (it and makes today a great bulk of cars in the secondary market) eventually became base. After a year have appeared inzhektornaja model VAZ-21214 and two “stretched” on half-metre “trehdverki” with indexes 2129 and 2130. The last did simply: cut the short car half-and-half and in the midpoint vvarivali an insert with windows. Depending on an index long cars were completed with engines in volume of 1.7 and 1.8 litres. In 1996 them has replaced “5 doors” VAZ-2131, and almost simultaneously light was seen by””Odds”– the three-door version extended on a doorway on 300 mm (it has received an index 21218).

Body

When we tell a body about “Niva” first of all on mind the three-door short version (in popular speech “hippopotamus” comes). It is necessary to notice that it is most adapted off-road and by right is famous for magnificent flotation ability. At least, will be cars which without special preparation would make”it in conditions off-rouda a little. But thus it is impossible to forget that safety factor of the car is not calculated on constant operation on heavy impassability. The body suffers first of all: some years of intensive loadings – and here already on power elements of the bottom appear indents, and then and cracks on longerons in an interval between a spring of a front suspension and a bracket of fastening of the absorber. Before their sale, of course, could and make, but that”put”the car, probably to define to indirect signs. First of all characteristic convex camber speaks about it (in size with a five-copeck coin) on vyshtampovke a front fender (more close to its rear part). In a city the body longs for other reason. Corrosion firmness of “Niva” at all at height also is comparable with VAZ classics. That before «high landing» it interferes with rust formation on thresholds only a little. The most problem places – all joints of panels, an edge of a door of a luggage compartment and a windshield framework. However, at cars of last years of release because of poor-quality painting the rust centres can arise on any place. For this reason the annual anticorrosive mixture and a constant preventive podkraska fresh are desirable having chopped off and scratches. Promotes corrosion and the become wet noise isolation of a floor, to dry which extremely hard. In the rest – both on strength, and on ruggedness on torsion is best of VAZ bodies. Especially restorer – with a short door of a luggage compartment. But today to find the car till 1994 with decent iron – the big good luck. And if they where have remained, is exact not in Moscow.

In 1999 of a bumper have decently dumped in weight and became “soft”. And before a dural channel it was possible to bring down fences it (is tried). That the extended cars possess the worst geometrical flotation ability, but the best roadability quite naturally. But about long-wheelbase bodies terrible legends go. Ostensibly they from time break in half, and on impassability them in general braids the screw. Food for these conversations of a distance three-door “crocodiles” and the very first “pjatidverki”, really not differing special strength. Cars which have absolutely collapsed on a separate part, the truth, nobody saw, but cracks on welding on separate copies meet, and an obvious rust on seams in the middle of a body for them a commonplace. However, quickly enough ruggedness five-door “crocodile” have improved, and the majority VAZ-2131 of any efforts from this party does not deliver. Srednebaznaja “Odds” VAZ-21218 and at all does not concede base model.

Engine

Complete with the new engine a working volume “Niva” has received of 1.7 litres and a little increased radiator of system of cooling. Become to the core 10 years ago the carburettor motor VAZ-21213 in volume of 1.7 l and capacity of 79 h.p. On the design it is similar to the predecessor and too differs reliability and unpretentiousness. Besides, it has received the contactless ignition system. At it pull-rod on bottoms (in comparison 1.6-litre) is much better. As to a resource of both motors it is declared by factory of all in 90 thousand in km. However, this figure is rather conditional. On the one hand, the engines which have easily jumped dvuhsottysjachnyj a boundary, with another – demanding partitions already after fifty are known. The lottery – created still fiatovskimi engineers the quality monitoring system on VAZ does not work for a long time already. And, as it is sad, but the great bulk of the motors which have been exhausted on a boundary of millenia, gravitates more likely to the second figure. Together with new motor “Niva” has received also new, more powerful generator. It has one weak place unknown to the old car: the built in voltage control box – it demands in due course replacement. And to reach it, it is required to remove and partially to disassemble the generator that at narrowness of configuration of a motor compartment occupies a lot of time and forces. On VAZ-2121 the voltage control box was a separate detail and fastened on the top surface of a wheel arch two nuts. Inzhektornye 1.7-litre could equip both monoinjection GM (1997-1999), and distributed Bosch (since 1999) . Since last year they have completely superseded carburettor power units from the conveyor (they continue to be delivered in spare parts and on long-wheelbase the versions which are exhausted OPP). The inzhektornaja version is slightly more powerful and thanks to the detonation gauge is capable to digest a low-rank gasoline in case of need. But it as it is strange, is more exacting to quality of oil, than carburettor (in a block head hydrocompensator bars of valves are established). As to monoinjection it is reliable, but in case of failure of any electronic component search spare parts can be tightened.

The engine developed in 1995 VAZ-2130 in volume of 1.8 litres and has not reached “the big” conveyor. It is issued on OPP and is regularly established only on long-wheelbase cars. But thanks to presence of these units on free sale, in the secondary market meet and korotkobaznye cars this motor. The feed system on 1.8-litre units basically carburettor, and the distributed injection meets only occasionally. Characteristics of this engine more approach an off-road car – at it the highest twisting moment from all scale “nivskih” motors. However and instability of quality too the highest …

Transmission

Transmission a rumble and the vibrations inherent in each “Niva”, completely it is impossible to eliminate. It is design feature. A gear box and razdatka make two various units and are connected by very short lay shaft with rubber gasitelem shifting jerkss. The rear cardan works at the greatest possible corners of a break krestovin, and at the slightest unbalance too aloud vibrates. But as a whole vibrations of the serviceable car are insignificant. If they have amplified, it speaks about malfunctions. The needling SHRUS promvala or the broken sline joints can be the reason soured krestovina in a cardan. Can be broken and transfer box centering. Owing to vibrations at it fixing eyelets sometimes burst. Fortunately, they demountable and in case of breakage do not demand replacement of the case of a transfer box. If the car never moved down from asphalt, at it from inactivity operating levers RK can sour. Since 1999 in razdatku began to establish melkomodulnye pinion gears that has essentially reduced noise, but … has increased marriage percent. An old four-speed transmission also almost eternal unit, but, alas, it it is impossible to tell about “the five-mortar” regularly established since 1994. Especially many efforts deliver the block of the fifth drive. Quite often already after 30 thousand run KP demands a partition (it manages approximately in 3000 roubles). How many it will work then – depends exclusively on quality of spare parts and conscientiousness of the master. SHRUS of forward controls are reliable enough, however rubber boots wear out and at driving on impassability are torn often. And as replacement takes away a lot of time (it is necessary to assort all drive gear) at the first repair it is better to put at once import “elastic bands” approaching on the size. They are, of course, more expensive, but is more elastic and stronger. If on “Niva” there are disks with smaller, than it is required (ET 50), a start, prepare for replacement front stupichnyh bearings (they are not intended absolutely not for perception of console loadings). Besides, konusnaja the design of these bearings demands delicate adjustment.

Running gear

“Niva” Suspender is simple, strong and reliable. Thus it provides decent comfort and very worthy for korotkobaznogo the car roadability. Quite often it provokes fans of active driving to transform any trip in «a World Cup stage on rallies-spot-checks». Really, the suspender adequately bears blows of tram ways, «lying policemen» and «low flight» over a bumpy first coat. But, uvlekshis such driving, it is possible to get into a mess. Absorbers first of all die and springs give, and also longitudinal levers of the rear bridge in due course bend. Separate “sportsmen” manage to bend even an axle beam. And if it is bent slightly and it imperceptibly visually the bridge will continue to work indifferently. Here only stupichnye bearings should be changed very often. And it is the whole history which services very much do not love. There “throw” a half shaft in gathering that manages around 1800 roubles.

In front from “races” trunnion balls and steering tips will start to break. Fortunately, “Niva” trunnion balls never, unlike same “Zhigulis”, suddenly do not collapse and long before the death start to warn the driver knocks and the opposite peep arising at rupture pylnika and hit of a dirt inside. For the cars constantly going on impassability, this commonplace. Soshki a steering reducer and an idler arm of cars till 1994 and after differ. Thanks to replacement the wheel became easier, but it was necessary to pay off for it with increase in diameter of a sharp turn. Besides, in idler arms plastic barrels have been replaced by bearings. The braking system of “Niva” since 1977 essentially has not changed. One circuit in it operates only on front wheels, another – on both shafts. On VAZ-2121 rear brakes demand a periodic adjustment of spacings.But if working cylinders from “copeck” to replace on self-brought from “five” (put since 1994), one tiresome operation in car service becomes less.

Result

So is represented today by””Niva”? Yes the same, as twenty years ago … the Compact and dynamical multiple-purpose off-road car allocated with magnificent flotation ability. An excellent variant both for the beginning subjugator of impassability, and for skilled (especially when it is capable to estimate adequately perspectivity of”road”and it is compelled to move much on a city). Well and at last, it is worthy transport for« romantic travel ». Ability quickly to go on any roads, a volume luggage compartment (in a double variant), possibility to repair anything you like in any settlement of our immense native land and … Europe. And all it – for rather moderate money! However, for last three years”Niva”has risen in price practically twice. The reason is covered in an agiotage caused by promises to lay off of it, having replaced more expensive and less off-road”Chevy”which design, by the way, has much in common with”old woman”. As a result for the three-year car today ask more than it cost initially! Occurrence of “successor” was reflected also in the technical image. Recently the factory constantly changes a design of classical “Niva”, unifying it from “Chevy”. As a result from sale “original” spare parts disappear. So, now in deficiency drive gears of the front bridge, a nave of front wheels, half shafts and a stocking of the rear bridge. As to other spare parts the unification put in a design with classical “Zhigulis” can play with you a joke: the part of details at them is very similar, but is not identical. And sellers know about it not always…

The new passenger five-seater off-road car going on change to the popular VAZ go-anywhere vehicle. The conceptual decisions which have got to it in the inheritance from “Niva” – an integral body, a constant drive gear of all wheels, adjoin to a number of innovations. Among them five-door a body with pasted glasses; a luggage compartment door (with the spare wheel located on it), opening aside; the engine with the distributed injection of fuel; the steering electrobooster a powerful heater. The chassis and transmission of old “Niva” structurally have not changed almost – the modernised units checked up by a life are applied. Here the list of completions: the reducer of the front bridge “is untied” from the engine; the design of a drive gear of a gear box is changed; the extended lay shaft; at раздатки pinion gears мелкомодульного gearings; front and rear propeller shafts are unified. Perhaps unique version which all the same has won the right to a life. Though with considerable changes and with participation of the foreign company. Though originally all looked tempting enough. And here that was at first …

On April, 5th, 1977 the first NIVA has descended from VAZ conveyor VAZ 2121. For the time it there was very worthy car. VAZ-2121 “Niva” – the four-seater car of cross-country capacity was issued by the Volga automobile factory since 1977. This car has been specially created for driving on impassability, travel to hard-to-reach spots, trips on hunting and fishing. Niva-2121 possessed for that time very progressive design combining excellent off-road qualities with comfort of the car, and practically had no for that time of world analogues that has allowed to export a car to many countries successfully. At off-road cars to “Niva”, «Rover» was such only at English! VAZ-2121 became one of the first representatives so “parquet” off-road cars popular now. In 1994 Niva 2121 has been replaced by the modernised model “Taiga” by which the index VAZ 21213 has been appropriated. This four-seater car of cross-country capacity with a constant not disconnected drive gear of all wheels with the predecessor «Niva 2121», senior for 16 years, are similar as the little sister-twin. On this fact it is possible to judge and about udachnosti models VAZ 2121. Outwardly the model VAZ 21213 differs the changed rear of a body. At it “long”, to a bumper the third door and new tail lights, bumpers are painted in svetloseryj colour that is more practical, than former unpainted aluminium. Interior VAZ 21213, and also the panel of devices, seats, facings are made just like VAZ 21083. Car modernisation has mentioned first of all the engine and transmission that has allowed to lower fuel consumption considerably. Its working volume is increased to 1700 see the contactless ignition system and the carburettor of the type “Soleks”, the new form of a combustion chamber Are applied. In transmission of the car a five-speed transmission and final drives with a reduction ratio 3,9. In a transfer box drive gear the SHRUS is established, on purpose to lower vibrations and transmission noise. In a braking system, besides from “eight”, the vacuum servo and a master cylinder are applied. In modelling versions VAZ 21213 with the engine with carburettor and VAZ 21214 with the distributed injection of fuel are presented joint-stock company “AvtoVAZ” number. Cars with engine with carburettors Peugeot a working volume of 1,9 l (VAZ 21215) are issued by small batches. Cars are issued only in a variant of execution “STANDARD” (Vaz 21213 00 and VAZ 21214 20). VAZ 21213 is high-grade off-road and dashing “rascal” on the most remote sites of roads, the best friend of hunters and fishers.

LadaThis VAZ 2107 has come into the hands of Michael 1,5 year ago. Right after purchases Michael as the person already having experience of operational development of VAZs, has begun work on perfection of the given car. Work went simultaneously in several directions (here it is necessary to add that completion is conducted both now and hardly will stop shortly), and that is important, in this case not creation racing bolida was the purpose of alterations, and increase in comfort, safety, convenience of management, well and, naturally, tjagovo-dynamic characteristics, in general, everything that should make factory, but could not, has not wanted. 96 “mares” under a cowl Standard dynamic abilities classical “zhigulej” can satisfy only the most undemanding drivers, therefore the question on improvement of dynamics of our heroine has risen sharply enough. Tuning VAZ 2107. Improvements of tjagovo-dynamic parametres of the engine can achieve in several ways: This speeding up of the regular engine (increase in degree of compression, completion of a head of the block of cylinders, installation of a camshaft with wide phases etc.) ; The second way is a replacement of the engine by another, obviously more powerful (for example, the rotorno-piston engine or the engine from the car of foreign manufacture). But these ways have serious lacks, therefore a choice has fallen on the third variant — installation of the engine with the big working volume (1,8) from VAZ-2131. Thus, Michael has received the engine with bolshej capacity and a twisting moment, without suffering with installation of the non-standard power unit. To reduce noise which in work publishes a chain of a drive of a camshaft, Michael has replaced it on single-row, for this purpose it was required to replace also leading, conducted and intermediate asterisks, uspokoitel and natjazhitel chains. The boot natjazhitelja is necessary for truncating from above on 20 mm. All these details are taken from VAZ-21214. Hydrojacks and natjazhitel chains “Rhodes” are based on a principle developed by Japanese for firm SAAB, also promote decrease in noise and besides relieve the owner of necessity periodically to regulate backlashes and a chain tension. The regular carburettor and trambler have been replaced with the products prepared by experts KARTJUNINGa, and on air clearing the filter of zero resistance has been planted.


LADA Priora Despite original bumpers and light engineering, in a silhouette of “Priora” lines of the predecessor – “Lada-110” are guessed. But in the car more than thousand new details that, you see, many for restyling or face lifting. All body is cut out anew, even facings of doors, apparently, the same, as at “ten”, are updated – for reduction of backlashes … LADA Priora Appearance of “Priora” – not last sigh of an automobile fashion, but “ten” nevertheless is more modern: slanting headlights (by the way, them dispersive – from polycarbonate which is much stronger some glass) and an elegant lattice of a radiator with a large emblem. Has left in the past “zilovsky” a cowl. Now it, as on the majority of cars, habitually keeps within between wings. Backlashes between body elements have decreased twice, and interfaces a bumper – a wing – a headlight (lantern) as if are drawn now. That glasses of doors remained pure, along the edges of a windscreen have provided the rubber reflectors which are taking away splashes on a roof. A frame of back deaf “window leaf” now from metal. It is less than details – manufacturing is easier, and it is more reliable – how many former overlays in movement simply blew off air pressure!

New Lada Priora

New Lada Priora

LADA Priora Back lanterns have entirely moved to wings, on a luggage carrier cover only licence plate with an overlay covering lanterns of illumination. LADA Priora the line of a back arch is raised, and the wheel is completely opened now. From hidden to an eye I will note the changed longerons, the strengthened thresholds, bokoviny and doors. All it has allowed to improve passive safety. 29 % of a surface of a body are zinced, and settlement firmness from through corrosion – 6 years. Work of door-locks became easier, have appeared a latch ljuchka a petrol tank and a stopper on a leash. Earlier such trifles on VAZ did not favour. LADA Priora the luggage carrier aperture hardly became wider. A cowl considerably potjazhelel. And business not only that it is covered by thicker noise isolation: now instead of two gas emphasis – one folding. So, speak, more cheaply. Perhaps it is necessary to open less often? In the PURSUIT OF EURO of 16 valve the 1,6-litre engine with an index 21126 outwardly differs nothing from 21124. However in the motor many new decisions. The main thing – the shatunno-piston group became easier. Details – import, from Federal Mogul. Compression degree has increased to 11 units. Capacity of the modernised motor of 98 h.p., and it keeps within in III. ventilation kartera Is finished: the oil separator volume is increased approximately by 50 % that has considerably lowered the expense of oil on charcoal fumes. A belt, pulleys, rollers and a semiautomatic device of a tension of belt GRM – too import, with a guarantee hodimosti 200 thousand in km.

In a transmission of “Priora” the closed bearings and more effective synchronizers, the mechanism of a choice of transfers is strengthened. Coupling the mechanism of automatic indemnification of an extract of a cable and deterioration of a conducted disk too is strengthened, entered. CHANGE of SCENERY LADA Priora the Panel of devices with the routeing computer is modern and informative enough. In an interior from “ten” there were only seats. LADA Priora in an average part of the panel – a double nest for “music”. In the same place a place for any trifle. Below – three rotary handles of management of a heater. Distribution of air streams the round handle knows, and zaslonki moves a motor-reducer. In left “corner” the block of management was attached by light. Here the rotary handle of external illumination and two regulators – illuminations of devices and the electroproof-reader of headlights are grouped. LADA Priora in a steering wheel the 60-litre pillow of safety is hidden. (The passenger – it is visible, less valuable crewman, for it the pillow in a base complete set is not provided.) and on a ceiling there was a place and for ochechnika. LADA Priora  the updated engine reminds GAS to character 1.5 litre 16 valve, waking up after 3500–4000 rpm. The terminator works on 6200, but to the motor, apparently, such mode not in burden. A steering thanks to the electroamplifier a lung, but only on small speeds. Perhaps, even unduly easy. However, since the speed of 80 km/h, a steering-wheel it is smoothly poured by informative weight, and at achievement of hundred help of the amplifier and at all vanishes. On road “Priora” it is appreciable sobrannee “tens” – a merit of the changed characteristics of a suspension bracket and occurrence in a back suspension bracket of the stabilizer of cross-section stability. Has as a result disappeared valjazhnost, lists in turns have considerably decreased. On 70 km/h I pull a wheel, simulating the rerate, and … pleasantly I am surprised.« Priora »behaves let and not ideally, but nevertheless it is better than the predecessor though small propensity to drift is. Brakes are much more effective than”tenth”, thus effort to pedals on-inomarochnomu small – thanks the new main cylinder and the 9-inch vacuum amplifier. In fast turns the wheel, apparently,”became shorter”. But it only subjective sensation – from an emphasis against the stop here the same almost four turns. On modern foreign cars such not to meet.

So, “Priora” – a new mark on a way of domestic car industry? Hardly. More likely, result of the correction of mistakes, revealed at “ten”, attempt to be kept in the niche of the market at active approach on all front of leaders of a world autostructure. However the main component of success – the best parity the price-quality. And traditional quality of cars of VAZ hardly can be carried to competitive advantages. In a technical part of break too it is not visible – ABS both was not, and is not present, and a unique pillow of safety in base – yesterday. There is last trump – the price. Despite similarity with “ten”, “Priora” is more modern. But in relation to competitors-foreign cars it defends more likely, than attacks. However, defence – the best way to exhaust the opponent. SAFETY? It is handed over! Bumpers reliably protect the car at a parking, absorbing energy of blow about a motionless obstacle in speed to 5 km/h without deformation of other details of a body. “Priora” corresponds to modern requirements on passive safety at face-to-face blow with displacement and lateral arrival (rules R94 and R95 EEK the United Nations). At blow by technique EuroNCAP of “Priora”, on estimations, types three stars. Also actions in calculation are thought already over to earn four. To protection of the driver and passengers serve not only a pillow and belts (for forward armchairs with a preliminary tension), but also strengthened a board front, thresholds and lateral racks, and also door bars. In upholsteries of doors the inserts, called to disperse local loadings on a body of the person in contact zones are provided. The soft overlay over the panel of devices will help to save the forward passenger from traumas at collisions on small speeds. The bottom parts of a casing of a steering column and the panel of devices are supplied by power absorbing inserts that knees of the driver have not suffered from blow about a steering shaft and the block of pedals.

LADA Priora designers of AUTOVAZ develop special colour scale For cars of family LADA PRIORA. If the flop-effect for LADA PRIORA the new pigment ksiralik will be already used more often is applied to colouring LADA KALINA. If the sun is not present, enamel with such pigment looks one-colour. But when on a surface the ray of light gets, particles of other colour or even the whole mix of several shades inside start to sparkle. This fantastic effect also will be shown in colouring of cars LADA PRIORA. For February two new colours – “space” and «a star dust» are already planned. Dealers of AUTOVAZ will start to receive cars LADA Priora in April. The marketing service of AUTOVAZ will prepare a number of celebratory actions for this time. They will be devoted an exit on the market new vazovskoj to model. According to the head of department of marketing of AUTOVAZ Alexander Bredihina, sedan LADA Priora, after the assemblage beginning, within 2-3 months, completely will replace on the main conveyor of AUTOVAZ sedan LADA 110. A hatch-back and the versatile person while will be issued in a former body. In total it is till the end of the year planned to let out an order of 84 thousand sedans LADA Priora. According to Alexander Bredihina, the price for new model will be comparable to current cost LADA 110, but taking into account the additional equipment which already in a base complete set enters into new model, for example the pillow of safety of the driver and is a lot of another. For today the recommended price of factory of 280 260 roubles. The January plan of welding of bodies for LADA PRIORA makes 84 pieces. Four bodies – for prototypes, the others will go for assemblage of commodity cars. In a New Year’s vacation works on modernisation of the welding equipment in manufacture of bodies of cars LADA have been spent. In particular, forces of experts of factory put into operation the multidot welding car necessary for welding of bodies with unified system of release of fulfilled gases for LADA PRIORA and cars of the “tenth” family. Now on the main conveyor of AUTOVAZ already there are unified bodies.
