Production of GAZelle NEXT Van started at Gorky Automobile Plantin the autumn 2015. The main focus during development of the new vehicle was on comfort and functionality; the slightest details were scrutinized to provide operational comfort. The body space of the van is 13.5 cubic meters, which is 30% higher than GAZelle vehicles of the previous generation. A special hatch under the passenger seat provides for transportation of long goods up to 5 m. The convenient cargo compartment facilitates and speeds up loading and unloading processes as much as possible. Autogoda_logo_png_2016.pngThe rear doors can be latched at 90 degrees intermediate position and at 270 degrees fully open position contributing to the extended drivers freedom of actions even under restricted city conditions. Plastic linings of the side panels and floor deck made of special water-resistant and wear-proof sea-quality plywood protect the body against abrasion and damages. The lashing eyes provide for convenient and reliable load securing.

Director of Light Commercial Vehicle Division of GAZ Group Pavel Sereda  The new model is a convenient and reliable vehicle with the richest configuration in its class. Its predecessor  the van of the previous generation  has been an unconditional leader of sales in the panel van segment. There are hundred thousands of those vehicles on Russian roads today. I am sure that the new GAZelle NEXT Van will allow Gorky Automobile Plantto enhance its presence in the mentioned segment by means of replacement of similar import cars and attraction of new customers.
