AutoVAZ Premiers New Lada X Ray Concept in Moscow


At this year’s 16th annual Moscow International Auto Show, local carmaker AutoVAZ premiered one of its more impressive concepts to date, the Lada-branded Xray crossover.

Devised by all new design chief Steve Mattin of former Mercedes-Benz and Volvo Cars fame, the concept's new front-end seamlessly molds together the headlights and bumper into a sharp ‘X’ shaped design, a look that Lada says will be present in all future models.

Inside, the X Ray receives an equally edgy styling complete with a high-quality leather coated seating arrangement, along with a futuristic dashboard and infotainment system.

As it sits, the Xray is still in concept form, but rumor has it that we could see the new design style in the lineup as early as 2015.

AutoVAZ hopes that Mattin's expertise will bring the brand to the forefront of the Russian market beginning with their all-new concept.

russian crap...

I wonder why in the English-language blog to post the news? Maybe in America or Europe are waiting for news about AvtoVAZ? These machines anywhere except Russia will not buy. And in Russia AvtoVAZ exists only thanks to crazy protective duties. This concept will never go into production. A AvtoVAZ and will continue to produce crap.

I really don't care if AutoVAZ makes junk or not. They've made a concept car and I wanted to see the pictures.

Alex said... »August 29, 2012

Well, if someone is really interested, then it's understandable.

Would you stop posting stupid comments about whether or not this or that is interesting ? I think your comments are way less interesting than this article.

I like the overall design of it, but the dashboard with this big text "Music" "Nav" etc looks very cheap. And their designers have weird tastes when it comes to choose colors for the seats... And the headrests look very, very thin for a concept car... But as far as the exterior is concerned, it has this Evoque-like feeling that makes it interesting to see in production :)

People are just hating for the sake of hating, this car is actually very original and beautiful at that! Well done AutoVAZ!!!

 "I wonder why in the English-language blog to post the news? Maybe in

anywhere except Russia will not buy." Oh that's very interesting especially in compariotion with fact that AvtoWAZ (called in other markets Lada) sells vehicles in other countries. Even in Germany. So I think people are interested.

Looks interesting.  Don't think the colour scheme does it any favours (shades of brown and caramel remind me of the 70's - never a good connection!) but other than that - rather neat!

i don't like Russian cars- i believe nobody does(except marussia) but this concept looks cool, who knows maybe they would start doing something but crab, especially if they started to hire people from overseas....

 You are an idiot ! I have 30 years old russian things , and they all work very fine even today. Russian things are very strong.

30 years ago, Russia was not, was the Soviet Union. Machines which were produced in the USSR and Russia vary in quality greatly. In the Soviet Union is doing better.

Alex said... »August 30, 2012

In Europe demand for AvtoVAZ so small that they ability to make some time to close its office. And half of sales, in my opinion, it gives a Lada Niva, cheap SUV for farmers, which is released in 1977, with no significant changes. If we show the concept Mazda, Takeri, then a year later, we see the new Mazda 6. If Acura shows new concept Honda NSX, then after a couple of years we will see a live car. Lada showed a concept, a beautiful concept, a good designer Steve Mattin, but they will produce Lada Kalina II. joylessly.

 Protective duties? Sounds like what France has for their brands.. oh and Kia's still owning them.

Alex said... »August 30, 2012

Coming into production 2040.

 I do not remember, I entered in 2009, protective duties, so that would save AvtoVAZ from bankruptcy. How did it affect the cost of a car? Previously,
Nissan cube, with delivery to Moscow, was worth $ 7000, now $ 12,000,
but at the same time, AvtoVAZ was worth $ 7500, now $ 12,000, Skyline
R35 with a 2.5 liter engine, cost $ 15,000 and is now $ 30,000,
machinery with
an engine with more than 2 liters, in fact, no longer be imported, the
exception - Luxury brands: Lexus, Bentley, Mercedes, those who buy them
do not care about taxes. This is me talking about old cars, the age of 3 to 7 years. All new cars the same rose, from $ 3000 minimum. Imports of cars decreased by 3 times, Then AvtoVAZ was $ 400 million and 900 million of state credit. 1.3 billion! So what? They did not change anything or upgrade, and just raised the price! After all, they have more competitors were not. Now
Russia enters the WTO, the government promised that the duty on cars
will be reduced, but at the last moment introduced "salvage fee" to
compensate for the price reduction. Funny
situation: you're forced to pay tax on the disposal of the car, and
there is no recycling plants, and may also not have plans for their
construction. It will be necessary to change the user name, and then by the looks like I talk to myself. :)

alex get a life you hate everything from russia and probably your a fat american boy who have never gon out of his room full of star wars toys

Does it matter that Renault/Nissan recently took controlling interests in Ladakh and that this is actually the face and design direction of the "new" Lada. This concept does not have to appeal to our Western tastes, it's intended to provoke interest primarily in Russia, considered among the faster growing car markets in world. I like the design and hope to see an entire line of new Ladas based on Clio and Megane platforms.

 LMFAO so nice I can call this one, I'm Russian, bitch

Tigerair said... »September 03, 2012

but if it is put in a series of lines of the plant - a handsome man. and if put to other manufacturers., then surely for that money I would rather have a German practicality, though not new, but the quality and no problems with spare parts!
car with a design to the 21st century. visibility fails. It assumes a simple finish. no amount of luggage. rear seats too small. design coarse. colors are terrible. generally exists harmony. and one wonders what this car for the student and his girlfriend. I would not buy it! I'm not rich enough to splurge. I'd rather have two practical and reliable opel ascona C, which will take me anywhere and if necessary, will leave behind many of today's show off! OPEL - DAZ AUTO) even 24 years ago)))
