KAMA will enter the Russian market by 2024

The pre-production prototype of the Kama electric car should be ready by the end of 2024. The former AVTOVAZ engineering director, Harald Grubel, who now holds the post of executive director of JSC «Kama», set this deadline. Thus, there are only 2.5 years left before the premiere of an electric car close to the series, but 4 years will have passed since the premiere of the first version in December 2020.

It is planned that by the middle of 2023, the production of prototypes for testing chassis and electronics will be completed. The Chinese specialists will likely participate in the development: in August, the company opened an office in China, which hires engineers for the integration of the ADAS (an advanced driver-assistance system), steering, braking, as well as developers of multimedia systems.
