UAZ “Patriot” became the first Russian car officially supplied to the United States: a queue has already lined up for it
Last week in Los Angeles, the American presentation of the UAZ Patriot SUV, which will be sold by the Californian Bremach company, under the name Bremach 4×4, took place. Recall that these plans first became known a year ago. Initially, it was planned to release a car called Taos, but this idea was abandoned, since such a model was released by Volkswagen last year.
The American “Patriot” will be available in two versions: standard and for extreme off-road (with special wheels, a different body kit, steel power bumpers and towing eyes brought out). In both cases, a 2.7-liter ZMZ Pro petrol engine with 149 hp is installed. and a 6-speed Punch Powerglide 6L50 automatic transmission. The car is equipped with permanent rear and all wheel drive.
The standard version of the SUV in the US costs $ 26,405, or about 1.9 million rubles. Moreover, in Russia, such a car costs from 1.4 million rubles, as we reported recently. Bremach has already received $ 3.8 million in the first 24 hours since the start of pre-orders. The exact number of pre-orders has not been disclosed, but it is known that the minimum payment for a car is only $ 100.
According to Bremash representatives, UAZ Patriot became the first Russian car officially supplied to the United States. At the same time, the importer claims that it has the best price-performance ratio in the midsize SUV class in the United States. The car has a 5-year warranty or 100 thousand km of run. For transmission – 10 years or 200 thousand km.
Bremach also plans to assemble cars in California from Russian vehicle kits. The first buyers will receive their Bremach 4×4 next year.
