AvtoVAZ said that the new Niva nameplates, which were spotted on the Lada Niva Legend and Lada Niva Travel SUVs of the 2024 model year, are installed on individual vehicles, if available.
There is no talk yet about a mass change of nameplates on the bodies of Niva family cars: “Single cars are rolling off the assembly line with Niva nameplates. They are installed if [such nameplates] are available.”
At the end of January, AvtoVAZ began sales of the 2024 model year Lada Niva Legend SUV with the updated Niva nameplate. These cars differ from previous models not only by the presence of ABS, EBD technologies and more environmentally friendly Euro-5 engines, but also by nameplates. On the trunk lid, only the Niva inscription is now visible, without adding the word Legend.
At that time, it was assumed that these changes affected only a certain batch of cars for which the necessary nameplates were not available. Now the information has been confirmed.
