On December 12, the first AURUS showroom in the northern capital was inaugurated. The new AURUS AVTODOM Dealer Center offers its visitors an exceptionally comfortable space to study, buy and maintain vehicles, including the armored versions of AURUS. The configurator area in the showroom offers a wide range of options for customizing vehicles, from body color and interior fittings to specific personalization options.
The showroom, with ample parking, service and lounge areas, is located in the AVTODOM hub at 14 Pulkovskoye Shosse.
A new chapter in the AURUS story began on September 29!
“The AURUS Komendant will be an important step in the development of the project. This unique vehicle embodies the true nature of strength, combining comfort and impressive endurance, style and reliability, embodying the boldness and power at the heart of the AURUS philosophy” – the commercial service.
On the day of the start of serial production of theAURUS Komendanton 26.11.2022, the AURUS plant in Tatarstan received the visit of Dmitry Manturov, Vice-President of the Russian Government – Minister of Industry and Trade, and Rustam Minnikhanov, President of the Republic of Tatarstan.
The guests ensured that the AURUS industrial project was moving forward with confidence, they also saw what innovations had been implemented and what existing unique technologies had been developed. Visitors were particularly interested in the localization exhibition where the main components supplied by Russian manufacturers were presented – there are already more than 100 of them in the AURUS industrial project.
After visiting the production facilities, DV Manturov sat behind the wheel of the new AURUS SUV. Together with RN Minnikhanov, they carried out a real winter test, because the first snow had just fallen in Elabuga that day.
“The car is very, very fiery. It gives the impression of being even faster than a sedan, because it is higher. Comfortable air suspension,” the new AURUS SUV described to the Deputy Prime Minister.
This model from Russian luxury carmaker Aurus was designed and rolled off the assembly line in less than a year and a half after its predecessor, the Senat sedan. It consists of 70% Russian-made parts. Video credit: aurusmotors.com
WHAT PENALTIES? As premium Western vehicle brands withdraw from the Russian market, Aurus (vehicle manufacturer) begins mass production of a Russian luxury SUV – the Aurus Komendant. With 70% of components sourced locally in Russia, the first commercial sales will begin in 2023.
The Aurus factory also manufactures the Presidential Aurus Senat at a cost of 36 million rubles (i.e. 490,672.68€ at the current ruble rate), it works with two electric motors and one hydrogen engine.
