By 2012, AvtoVAZ plans to start producing a low-end sedan to replace its classic models and the Samara, vice president Hugo Demarchelier has said.

The classic AvtoVAZ models include the 2105 and 2107 models which date back to the original Fiat 124 model built under licence from the 1960s.

AvtoVAZ will also start building a new RX-90 model in 2012-2013. It will be developed jointly with the Renault-Nissan alliance, Demarchelier added, according to Prime-Tass.
