The first serial AURUS heralds a new era in the Russian automotive industry


The first serial premium sedan AURUS Senat rolled off the assembly line in a special economic zone of industrial production type "Alabuga" (Republic of Tatarstan). This event has become a landmark for our automotive industry and not only.


Let's start with the fact that for the first time in the history of the Russian car industry, practically from scratch, a line of executive class cars has been created. By the end of this year, it is planned to produce about 300 units of AURUS Senat. At the same time, the plant's capacity in Tatarstan makes it possible to assemble up to 5000 of these machines per year.

Next year, the production of the Aurus Komendant crossovers will start at the same plant. The possibility of assembling the Aurus Arsenal minivan is also being considered.

According to the manufacturer, today the level of localization of "Aurus" is 53%. However, by the end of 2022 it will reach 80%.

But that's not all. The Aurus car is based on the EMP modular platform, developed in Russia and allowing, in addition to cars, to produce motorcycles and even helicopters. Other automakers will also be able to use it as a technical groundwork for the production of models in completely different price segments.

At the same time, Aurus is also not going to "mark time" in place. A Senat with a hydrogen engine has already been created and tested, an electric car is next in line, and this summer the engine from Aurus will be installed on the Yak-18T aircraft for testing. If the latter succeeds, cheaper and easier-to-manufacture automobile engines can be used in small aircraft.

    It turned out to be a very beautiful car. Hopefully the build quality will be up to par. Good luck, Aurus!

    Another stupid project. It is difficult to make a bad car for 25 million rubles (although ...), the problem for 0,5 million is to make a simple and good one.

      It's hard to make a bad car for 25 million rubles

      try it in Israel. Only you will have 12,4 billion rubles for this, if I'm not mistaken (what part of a billion $? 1/6?) - and this whole project cost so much

      According to various estimates, the development of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft cost Russia from 20 to 60 billion rubles - also less than a billion dollars

      Russians on their knees for a ridiculous budget do quality things that our leading partners can hardly master

    With a start! It is not for nothing that Tatarstan is one of the final points of internal migration. I would like to know about the number of new jobs, but the article does not say about this.

    Vasyuki!
    Will they sell a hundred? Is it cost effective? What about hydrogen? Is this exactly Russian technology?
    And wouldn't it be better to transfer "state employees" from gasoline to "gas" for Russia? Figs with him, with hydrogen. For gas at least? ... The same cornfield. Maybe even for the same money?

    A failed Potemkin idea. Nice design though. This machine is needed as a guarantee of the inviolability of the life and health of the first persons. It's necessary. No more.

    Rather, it is something new ... in electoral technologies.

    Is this a collection of words, or were you trying to convey something? They did not report. Spilled.
