SAMARA, April 21. /TASS/. Russian carmaker AVTOVAZ has assembled the pilot prototype of the LADA XRAY crossover, AVTOVAZ told TASS Tuesday.
"A pilot prototype of LADA XRAY has been assembled at AVTOVAZ. The car was personally inspected by carmaker president Bo Andersson. The assembled car will soon be sent to ride tests," an AVTOVAZ spokesman said.
The carmaker said it is preparing for LADA XRAY production ahead of schedule. "AVTOVAZ is organizing its work so as to start producing LADA XRAY on December 15, 2015," it said.
The LADA XRAY crossover utility vehicle makes part of the three most expected new car models by AVTOVAZ - LADA Vesta, LADA XRAY and LADA XRAY Cross.
The concept of the CUV was presented by AVTOVAZ at the Moscow International Automobile Salon in August 2012. The car was created under the supervision of AVTOVAZ chief designer Steve Mattin, who earlier was the designer of Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. According to Mattin, LADA XRAY is "the quintessence of the DNA of the new style LADA.".
