What models will begin to release the GAS — report ZR

At the Gorky car you can explore the complex and ambiguous history of our country. They participated in all the landmark events of the last 85 years, clearly reflected the spirit of its era. We went to Nizhny Novgorod to find out how to live GAS today.Kanunnikov Sergey “Behind the wheel”Konstantin Vasiliev “Behind the wheel”

Some time ago gazowy refused to produce cars under its own brand. The logic is simple: at the time of project launch of Volga Siber, the company controlled only 0.1% of the automobile market. Then Russia sold 421 model. Get on the 422-th line in the item list — a dubious prospect. But in the commercial vehicle segment, the share of Gas amounted to about 40%. On it and decided to focus. In the end this strategy enabled the company to not only survive, but thrive.

In the production of the ghazal employs 880 people who work in one shift. The day produced 295 cars. For comparison: in 2013, when the GAZelle first came out, collected more than 500 cars a day.In the production of the ghazal employs 880 people who work in one shift. The day produced 295 cars. For comparison: in 2013, when the GAZelle first came out, collected more than 500 cars a day.

Modern GAS is associated primarily with the van. Both her version and the Next Business, gather on one conveyor belt. And gazowy not yet plan to abandon the old model of Business and remove it from production. Both cars are in demand. In fact, one coming off the conveyor car is already sold. Therefore, a simple Assembly line for any reason turns into a loss of profits. Of course, downtime is minimized. For example, before any new employee begins work on the Assembly line, it is a week-long training at the training center. But the production has a modern quality control system. She once borrowed from Toyota for the launch of Volga Siber. Something later adopted from Daimler: in this workshop on the next line assemble Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Classic.

Here are just a few edited into the detailed shots from the production:

On one conveyor thread and get on the GAZelle Next and GAZelle Business. The proportion dictated by the market. Now it is 60:40 in favour of Next. Up to half of the machines off the production line in the form of a naked chassis. Subsequently, they dobrodey add-ons for special purposes.On one conveyor thread and get on the GAZelle Next and GAZelle Business. The proportion dictated by the market.

Every fifth car on the conveyor is equipped with gas equipment. It is installed on cars with bi-fuel (gasoline/gas) engine EvoTech A275 working volume of 2.7 L.

Daily pipeline is selected by two vehicles for audit — check for inconsistencies. Car inspected, and then sent to the track where you identify noises, creaking. Of course, the detected flaws do not remain without attention: try to eliminate.

Every day from the conveyor randomly choose 2 cars, drive them in a well lit box and carefully examined. The found defect is evaluated by 9-point scale. 9 indicates that such a defect will see any client. 3 points — so the defect will detect 40% of clients. Less than three points get hidden defects.Every day from the conveyor randomly choose 2 cars, drive them in a well lit box and carefully examined.

A joint venture with a Belgian company Bosal provides all of the conveyor Gas branch details of the exhaust system manufactured here cars. Please note that tubes of different lengths as they are designed for different modifications of vehicles: details already sorted in the order in which you will need on the Assembly line. This approach allows us to save on logistics.A joint venture with a Belgian company Bosal provides all of the conveyor Gas branch details of the exhaust system manufactured here cars.

In General, gazowy go the way of the active joint ventures. Today it produces cars like Volkswagen Jetta, Skoda Yeti and Octavia, and soon this list will join the new crossover Skoda Kodiaq. However, most of the territory of the plant, and it is about 600 hectares, is the production of components. And not only road — there even used to make tooling for Boeing!

The Chinese company Yapp Gas on the leased areas organized the production of plastic fuel tanks, which are already mounted on all-metal van GAZelle Next. And in December, plastic tank capacity 85 l will be on Board the GAZelle, as the series Next, and Business.

In most cases localization of production leads to a decrease in the cost of the final product, but not always. Remember forever current radiators GAZelle? Once at the plant organized a joint venture with T. Rad, a Japanese manufacturer and a major supplier of radiators for Toyota, the problem has been solved. New radiator tech, but more expensive. So it was with many of the problematic components for the GAZelle. Nevertheless, the cost of the machine itself managed to hold on to a competitive level.

By the way, about competitors. Recently debuted Oise Profi carrying capacity of 1.5 tonnes and all-wheel drive Gas-not afraid. He’ll probably take a small part of the market Next, but not in the field of heavy transport, and is more likely to compete with the Sable. That’s what about four-wheel drive line of light commercial vehicles GAZ said Vadim Sorokin:

Of course, we think of all-wheel drive for GAZelle Next, but this car in 2018 just does not appear. In the short term, we look forward to the Sobol 4×4, both single and double cab.

At the end of next year, GAZelle will begin to set volkswagenaudi two-liter turbodiesel engine — the one now used on the VW Crafter. Gazowy plan to remove about 150 HP together with him will work 6-speed manual transmission. The two-litre unit is noticeably lighter and more economical than currently available in the line turbodiesel Cummins ISF2. In addition, it meets environmental standards Euro-6 (Cummins Euro 4) that will expand the range of countries in which the citizens export their products.

And gazowy intend to run the GAZelle Next with GVW of 4.6 t Now the average is 3.5 tons, the production of such a machine is at the final stage. The launch is scheduled for December. But the niche of the so-called “heels” consider unpromising to compete with the van Lada Largus still useless.

In the near future gazowy plan to launch production of GAZelle Next with GVW of 4.6 t Pre-production sample of such a machine we got in one of the Assembly plants. In addition to the increased wheelbase the machine is an interesting disc brakes on all wheels, and electronic stability system ESP. In sale such car will appear in early 2018.In the near future gazowy plan to launch production of GAZelle Next with GVW of 4.6 t Pre-production sample of such a machine we got in one of the Assembly plants.

As for the range of medium-duty trucks in the near future lineup will join the Lawn Next 10, etc And in the middle of next year will begin production of a 6-speed automatic gearbox of its own design, designed for torque up to 800 Nm. The machine will manufacture at the enterprise “Nizhny Novgorod motors” (the former factory of boxes of speeds). This gearbox is applicable to any gazovskih car from a segment of average trucks with engine JAMZ-534.

Now great attention is paid gazowy medium and large trucks and buses, intending to win the maximum possible market share of commercial traffic.

While Elon Musk is producing “batteries on wheels”, we put them in boxes, but separate from the rest of the garbage. In the headquarters of Gas a similar picture can be seen on each floor. However, Gas are already thinking about electric cars…Until Elon Musk produces “batteries on wheels”, we put them in boxes, but separate from the rest of the garbage.

No future without a past

There are probably a country person, who has ever had to deal with a car factory on the Volga river, which is already 85 years old. Grandfathers and great-grandfathers worked, then fought, and then rebuilding the country behind the wheel of the unassuming and unpretentious trucks. Someone learned the basics of driving in the cabs of trucks GAZ in the 1960s and 1970s. Others learned to overcome the hardships and privations of army service, and at the same time to attack the roads along with the famous “shishiga.” Millions of people traveled in a taxi on behalf of Volga, and some even had these — the most prestigious cars in private ownership. Well, today among those who did not catch the time when the Victory and the Volga were young, a lot of fans of these models turned now esteemed old-timers.

A small exhibition of the legendary gazovskih trucks next to the shop for the production of Gazelles speaks for itself. This is another reminder to the workers about how important the company’s truck segment. Ever next to deservedly settle and GAZelle.A small exhibition of the legendary gazovskih trucks next to the shop for the production of Gazelles speaks for itself.
