Gorky Automobile Plant has unveiled its new pre-serial GAZelle e-NN

23 Sep 2020
First pre-serial GAZelle e-NN LCVs have rolled off the assembly line at Gorky Automobile Plant. The new model is based on the unified electric platform; its architecture makes it possible to build a complete lineup of light commercial vehicles, including drop-side trucks, minibuses, vans and various specialty vehicles. Three new vehicles were showcased at the Digital Industry of Industrial Russia (CIPR) Conference taking place in Nizhny Novgorod, the hometown of GAZ, from 23 to 25 September.
Gorky Automobile Plant has unveiled  its new pre-serial GAZelle e-NN

Gorky Automobile Plant has showcased its first pre-serial GAZelle e-NN vehicles – an executive-class minibus, a shuttle van and a crew van - at the CIPR Conference. The electric vehicles were made at the main assembly line as part of the pre-serial production process. The new model designed by GAZ engineers makes it possible to build a complete lineup of light commercial vehicles, including drop-side trucks, minibuses, vans and various specialty vehicles. This gives flexibility in responding to customer needs and requirements to make various electric modifications with minimum time and technology costs for pre-production.

The new electric vehicle combines unified parts (incl. chassis, body and compartment) of GAZelle NEXT, the most popular Russian light commercial vehicle, and all-new electric systems, e.g. traction batteries, electric motor, voltage converter, charger, etc. Its GVW is 4.6 t. with the payload capacity of up to 2.5 t (drop-side versions).  The electric motor is synchronous with permanent magnets, its max. power is 100 kW and its max. torque is 310 Nm. The battery storage capacity is 48 kWh. The vehicle can run 120 km on a single charge at the maximum speed of 100 km/h. If required by the customer, additional batteries can be installed increasing the range up to 200 km. The system supports fast-charging technology that charges the battery up to 80% in just 30 min.

Vadim Sorokin, GAZ Group President:

- Serial production that we are getting ready for at the moment, opens up great opportunities for electric vehicle development based on our in-house engineering and production competencies. The main goal for GAZ Group as well as for the Russian mechanical engineering industry in general is to arrange in-house production of major parts and systems for electric vehicles. This can help deliver technological independence for Russia in the context of global changes, develop in-house engineering competencies and make Russian products more competitive at the global market.
