Chinese-rebadged Soviet-era Moskvich returns

KAMAZ revived the Moskvich brand with the Moskvich 3. The vehicle is constructed in a former Renault plant called Moscow Automobile Plant Moskvich.

Next month, sales will commence and 600 units will be assembled by year's end. 400 will use internal combustion engines, while 200 will be electric.

Reuters reports China's JAC supports KAMAZ's effort. The Moskvich 3 is a rebadged JAC JS4.

The ICE-powered Moskvich 3 could be equipped with 1.5- and 1.6-liter engines providing up to 148 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque. 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and infotainment system are likely.

Moskvich 3 crossovers will be semi-assembled in Russia, relying on Chinese partners. KAMAZ stated they'll steadily expand localization and deploy "fully Russian components" in 2024.

Moskvich aims to build a "Russian electric automobile from Russian components on its own universal platform." This type uses a Russian-made electric motor and battery pack.

KAMAZ aims to produce 50,000 vehicles in 2023 and 100,000 in 2024. KAMAZ Director General Sergey Kogogin commented, "We are glad that KAMAZ advancements will help the ongoing development of the Russian automotive sector"
