They thought that he died – but no: the roadster “Crimea” will be assembled in Novocherkassk

The announcement of the Russian roadster called “Crimea” once made a lot of noise. It was shown in 2013 – then many people liked the stylish “two-door”. However, the developers only had the strength to prepare two prototypes: they were preparing to present the third in the fall of 2022, but something went wrong.

The idea to create such a car was originally born at Bauman Moscow State Technical University. Subsequently, other technical universities of the country, including Novocherkassk Polytechnic University, were also involved in the project. It is on the basis of this educational institution that they want to start the small-scale production of the roadster. And this must happen in 2023.

The car itself was created on the basis of the components of the budget LADA Granta, which already raises questions about the sporty character of a potential novelty on the market. And we are not talking about the new “Grant 2”, but about the one that has long been sold by dealers. As for the interior, it is 70% united with Togliatti.

At the moment, engineers are planning to install a gasoline engine from LADA in Crimea, and a bi-fuel unit from Vesta CNG will appear later, running on methane.

“Crimea” turned out to be very specific, and therefore it is unlikely to gain popularity and demand. Yes, and refining the model will take time, and without it, the roadster is doomed to suffer teething problems, which will further scare off potential customers. The price is also unclear. Suppose it becomes big, because we are talking about a very modest party.
