Top Manager of Uzbek company "Uzavtosanoat" Shukhrat Mirsamukov announced the release of a new budget model Ravon, which could become one of the bestsellers of its segment in Russia and other CIS countries.
With the declared approximate price of 650 thousand - 1 million rubles, the novelty should get to the market field, where Lada Vesta, Kia Rio and Hyundai Solaris are now "steering". Presumably, we are talking about the new Chevrolet Onix sedan.
"Our new car, which will cost between 10 and 15 thousand dollars, will be able to reverse the situation. We hope and believe in this, because this product is absolutely new and even if compared with competitors in design and technical characteristics, it is much higher than them, " explains Mr. Mirsamukov.
According to him, the key players in the Russian market — Lada and Korean car brands — were able to take the lead thanks to the introduction of new options such as modern multimedia systems, cruise control, climate control, and so on at a democratic price tag. Apparently, the ravon brand with its model will follow the same strategy.
Formally, details about the new "low-cost carrier" are not disclosed. We only know that the project will be implemented "together with a foreign partner" - obviously, Chevrolet. As mentioned earlier, there is speculation that the budget bestseller may be the new Chevrolet Onix sedan, which is originally addressed to South America and China. This model should replace the outdated Ravon Gentra and R4 (Cobalt).
