The new Moskvich 3 gets a new name, petrol and electric version
Vehicle Type Approvals (OTTS) for the new Moskvich appeared on the Web. Models "Moskvich 3" and "Moskvich 3e" are turned JAC JS4 and E40X, so the initial rumors were once again confirmed. The Moskvich 3 crossover will be offered with two engines to choose from, aspirated or turbocharged. Moskvich 3e will receive a 68-horsepower electric motor and will be able to drive up to 410 kilometers without recharging. The production of cars was planned to be launched by the end of this year.
According to OTTS, JAC JS4 crossovers will be sold under the name Moskvich 3. Moreover, KAMAZ is indicated as a car manufacturer, and the Moscow Automobile Plant Moskvich, formerly Renault Russia, is indicated as an assembly plant.
Two modifications are announced, both are front-wheel drive, with a six-speed “mechanics” or a Punch variator. Engines - "aspirated" 1.6 (109 hp, 150 Nm) and turbo engine 1.5 (150 hp, 210 Nm), running on AI-92 gasoline.
The Moskvich 3 equipment will include power windows, climate control, tire pressure monitoring and a driver's airbag. For a surcharge, cruise control, a rear-view camera, parking sensors, an airbag for a passenger and side curtains will be offered.
JAC E40X electric off-road vehicle will turn into Moskvich 3e. It will be equipped with a DY Power liquid-cooled electric motor (68 hp) and a Sinoev Technologies battery with a capacity of 187 amp-hours (250-450 V). The declared power reserve is 410 kilometers. The list of equipment for the electric Moskvich is the same as for the gasoline twin brother.
Last summer, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin drew up a roadmap for the Moskvich plant for the coming years. The first stage is the organization of SKD assembly of cars from the so-called friendly countries. The second is a deeper localization of the production of the same machines. And only then the company will start assembling its own electric vehicles. KAMAZ will be the main technological partner of the project.
