Metal van GAZelle NEXT is presented in three versions: the cargo, cargo-passenger (combi) and a minibus. With the release of the van GAZelle NEXT GAZ Group comes into a new segment of commercial vehicles, which were previously represented only by foreign manufacturers. Compared to GAZelle of the previous generation the capacity of the cargo compartment of the van grew by 30% to 13.5 cu. m. A special device allows to transport long-range loads of up to 5 m. Combi-van can accommodate 7 people and 9.5 cu. m cargo. The second row of seats of the car can be easily transformed into a full sleeper. Minibus is designed for use as a taxi, tourist or corporate transport. It can comfortably accommodate 16 people. Comfort for the passengers is achieved due to the high doorway, low steps, high cabin, LED lighting and panoramic windows. The body of the van, GAZelle NEXT is made of galvanized steel and protected from corrosion. Gears are shifted by a remote driver (joystick), located on the dashboard. Application of a new plastic fuel tank, the volume of which has increased to 80 liters increased cruising range on one filling. Modifications to the rear suspension improved roadability and smooth ride.


Another bright premiere of the Gorky Automobile Plant will be the truck-tractor GAZon NEXT. Through the application of trailer design GAZ engineers were able to double the machine capacity compared with a truck GAZon NEXT: the tractor can carry up to 10 tons of cargo. Along with an increase in load capacity the size of transported cargo increases: the car trailer can transport volume from 50 to 80 cubic meters. In comparison with the existing today imported models in this segment the new tractor provides the minimum cost per kilogram of cargo.

GAZ Group opens a new stage in the development of its bus direction offering a model of small class Vector NEXT. The development is made based on a modular design that allows continuing to make coaches of different dimensions on its base reducing the time and resources to the creation and organization of the entire production range. Impressive comfort, excellent steerability, low noise level  buses of NEXT family will make a happy long distance travel. And thanks to the original design the bus will not only provide a high level of comfort for the driver and passengers, but also will decorate Russian cities.

Another bus premiere  the new low-floor model of the middle class bus for urban transport, length of 9.5 m. The model of Likino Bus Plant is designed to transport 75 passengers. The bus is equipped with a diesel engine YaMZ-530 with 210 hp Euro-5, automatic transmission and axles of ZF. The bus is equipped with a video surveillance system, fire-fighting, digital tachographs and GLONASS navigation equipment.
