Does Lada still exist? Yes, the Russian brand is very much alive and has a market share of about 20 percent in its home country. Lada has been owned by Renault for some time and is now part of the Dacia-Lada business unit. Over the next four years, the manufacturer will introduce four new models, of which the Niva is one.
New Lada Niva on the market in 2024
We have to wait a while for the Lada Niva, because it will not arrive until 2024. And then it will look a bit like the study model in the attached photo. The similarities with the primal Niva are immediately clear, especially when you look at the rounded headlights, the simple black grille and the turn signals above it.
‘Niva’ means ‘field’ in Russian
The Lada Niva – ‘niva’ is Russian for ‘field’ – was the first hardcore off-road vehicle in 1977 with a monocoque chassis and coil springs at the front. Other serious 4x4s still used a ladder chassis and a separate body. Lada designed the all-terrain vehicle for use by farmers in Russia’s vast hinterland.
Groupe Renault nam in 2016 Avtovaz over
Groupe Renault has owned Lada’s parent company Avtovaz since 2016. More than eight years earlier, the Renault already bought 25 percent of the Avtovaz shares. Modern Ladas therefore use Renault technology. For example, the Lada X-Ray is a previous generation Dacia Duster.
