Patent images of the serial version of the off-road vehicle Chevrolet Niva of the second generation appeared in the internet. The illustrations are located in the base of the federal service for intellectual property (Rospatent).
As judged by pictures, the model will be created in the style of the similarly named concept car presented at the Moscow motor show in the 2014. The prototype was completed with the Peugeot’s 1,8-litre naturally aspirated engine with 135 horse powers of output and the five-speed mechanical transmission with the speed reduction gearing.
The longitudinal location of the engine, permanent all-wheel drive, and a locking of an interaxles differential are expected to remain in the off-road series vehicle.
The manufacturing of Chevrolet Niva of the next generation had to be adjusted in the end of the 2015 at the plant GM-AVTOVAZ in Tolyatti, the construction of which had started in the middle of the 2013. In May, it was announced about the delay of the construction of the enterprise, but subsequently the intention to continue the work at the project was declared in SP GM-AVTOVAZ.
