Russian premium Aurus cars will fall in price twice when their mass production begins, President Vladimir Putin said during the plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok. RBC was broadcasting live.
According to the head of state, the reason for the current high prices for Aurus cars is small production volumes.
«Aurus is expensive because it is not produced enough. It will go into a series — it will become twice as cheap », — said Putin.
Earlier, the head of Aurus, Andrey Pankov, said that the company is ready to scale production at the plant in Tatarstan and meet the state’s need for cars. According to him, the plant now has all the necessary resources for the production of domestic executive cars.
The Aurus model range currently consists of the Senat sedan. It is equipped with a 4.4-liter V8 with dual turbocharging. Its power is 598 hp and 880 NM of torque. Together with it, an electric motor is installed, the power of which at its peak is 62 hp. The power plant works in conjunction with a nine-stage automatic machine.
The company also produces a full-size crossover Aurus Komendant, which is technically identical to the Senat sedan. They share a common modular EMP platform and a power plant consisting of a 4.4-liter V8 engine with a capacity of 598 hp and a nine-speed automatic KATE with a built-in 62-horsepower electric motor. The drive is complete in both cases, but the crossover, unlike the sedan, has an air suspension. It changes stiffness depending on the selected driving mode, and the ground clearance varies in the range from 200 to 260 mm.
Komendant is not officially on sale yet, but the car can already be pre-ordered at car dealerships. The waiting period will be approximately eight months. Preliminary prices range from 33 million to 35 million rubles.
The Aurus model range also includes the Aurus Arsenal minivan. It is assembled by the FSUE “US” mainly for the needs of the Special Purpose Garage of the division of the Federal Security Service of Russia, which is responsible for the safe movement of the president, Prime Minister, visiting leaders of foreign states. However, next year it is planned to release a small serial batch of Aurus Arsenal minivans. The power plant of the car is similar to that installed on Senat sedans.
In addition to cars, Aurus also intends to produce an electric motorcycle Merlon. It is equipped with a 190-horsepower electric motor, which allows you to accelerate to the first hundred in less than 4 seconds. The maximum speed is 200 km/h. Thanks to a 21 kW battery, the power reserve is 200 km on a single charge.
