Nissan Sales to Begin

The Russian subdivision of Nissan will start selling Almera vehicles assembled at AvtoVAZ for 429,000 rubles ($14,220) in March, the company said, Interfax reported.

Assembly of the Nissan Almera at AvtoVAZ began in December. The car is built using the B0 platform, which AvtoVAZ uses for the Lada Largus.

The Tolyatti-based company will also start assembling Renault cars on the B0 platform in the second half of 2013. The French company currently produces Logan and Sandero cars on the B0 platform in Moscow.

"The Nissan Almera will be offered with a 1.6-liter engine with 102 horsepower and five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions, and it will be sold for 429,000 to 565,000 rubles. The first cars will reach the official dealerships in March," the company said.
