    New Subforum possible? GM Russia?

    I would like to make a proposal for the new subforum - GM Russia & CIS. Probably you guys would know that we produce cars not only walk around with bears, vodka and balalaikas.

    reasons:

    -Rather big piece of cake (emerging market)
    -Different productions (GM Auto Saint Petersburg (Chevy Cruze, Chevy Captiva, Opel Astra, Opel ANtara), Avtotor - (Hummer H2-H3, Cadillac Escalade, Opel astra & Zafira, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Lacetti, Chevy Aveo, Chevy Orlando in future) UZ Daewoo (Lacetti, matiz etc.), GM-Avtovaz (Chevy Niva)
    -We launch smth earlier than US (Cruze for example)
    -news from different brands are in one place

    We have a lot of news here in snowy Mother-Russia

    You've got my vote.

    I'd add that Russia has fascinating automotive history.

    Is the Chevrolet Niva still being produced? What about the original Lada Niva, it still in production somewhere? You're right, very few of us know anything about the Russian auto market. A friend sent me a few pictures of a prototype Russian car a few weeks ago... I'll dig them up and add them. It would be nice to have a few small subforums for these different markets that we don't hear much about. Good idea... and feel free to tell us more!

    Ah was able to fin the pictures (can't add them right now, will do it later)... it was a Volga from GAZ. Quite the interesting concept, probably a few years old, but fairly sleek and solid looking.

    Chevy Niva got a face lift last year, yes, it is produced and a bestseller.

    Lada Niva is now called Lada 4x4. Still produced, we have our own 30 years old Defender still a bestseller

    That concept from GAZ, i see which one you mean - this is fake. that was a 3D render, not an existing prototype - it made a lot of noise couple years ago.

    Ah yes... the Russians.

    I've always said that Cadillac would do well to make more of an effort in targeting Russia, seeming as every Russian I've ever met would absolutely love a huge powerful Cadillac.

    So would many Americans, and Canadians.
