MOSCOW, March 10 – RIA Novosti. The pilot batch of Aurus Senat was produced at the Sollers group plant in Yelabuga, the machines are being tested at NAMI, a representative of Aurus told RIA Novosti.
“The pilot batch of serial equipment was produced according to the schedule. Currently, the cars are undergoing the necessary tests at NAMI,” the agency's interlocutor said, adding that the matter concerns Aurus Senat sedan cars.
Serial production of Russian luxury cars Aurus Senat should begin in May 2021 at the facilities of the Sollers group in Yelabuga. This has been repeatedly stated both in the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and in Aurus Motors itself.
At the same time, as it turned out in February, Aurus Senat from the first batch in high performance will cost 22 million rubles, which is 22% more expensive than the basic version, which was previously estimated at 18 million. The representative of the company explained that it is incorrect to talk about the rise in price of the new product, since it is the first batch of cars that will be produced in a special, “high” version.
