The Russian automobile giant AvtoVAZ begins mass sales throughout Russia of the first Lada model connected to the telematics platform Lada Connect. The first sign was Lada Granta. Initially, the start of sales was announced back in May. However, until now such cars were not available in all Lada dealerships and only in Moscow, Moscow region, St. Petersburg, Samara region, Tatarstan, and Perm region.
It is also noted that in Lada dealerships all test samples of Lada Granta will be replaced with Luxe and Luxe Prestige configurations with the Lada Connect package.
The new telematics system Lada Connect is offered as an option for various configurations at a price of 12,000 rubles, including 3 years of service. The system allows using a smartphone to monitor the state of the car and control the engine, climate, tailgate, lighting, and other equipment, as well as track the location of the car in real-time.
