First pre-serial GAZelle e-NN LCVs have rolled off the assembly line at Gorky Automobile Plant. The new model is based on the unified electric platform; its architecture makes it possible to build a complete lineup of light commercial vehicles, including drop-side trucks, minibuses, vans and various specialty vehicles. Three new vehicles were showcased at the Digital Industry of Industrial Russia Conference taking place in Nizhny Novgorod, the hometown of GAZ, from 23 to 25 September.

Gorky Automobile Plant has showcased its first pre-serial GAZelle e-NN vehicles – an executive-class minibus, a shuttle van and a crew van – at the CIPR Conference. The electric vehicles were made at the main assembly line as part of the pre-serial production process. The new model designed by GAZ engineers makes it possible to build a complete lineup of light commercial vehicles, including drop-side trucks, minibuses, vans and various specialty vehicles. This gives flexibility in responding to customer needs and requirements to make various electric modifications with minimum time and technology costs for pre-production.

The new electric vehicle combines unified parts (incl. chassis, body and compartment) of GAZelle NEXT, the most popular Russian light commercial vehicle, and all-new electric systems, e.g. traction batteries, electric motor, voltage converter, charger, etc. Its GVW is 4.6 t. with the payload capacity of up to 2.5 t (drop-side versions). The electric motor is synchronous with permanent magnets, its max. power is 100 kW and its max. torque is 310 Nm. The battery storage capacity is 48 kWh. The vehicle can run 120 km on a single charge at the maximum speed of 100 km/h. If required by the customer, additional batteries can be installed increasing the range up to 200 km. The system supports fast-charging technology that charges the battery up to 80% in just 30 min.
