Recently, our channel told about the new Russian medium-tuning «Valdai Next», which now produces Gorky Automobile Plant. The most unusual in it is the cabin of a domestic truck. She is Chinese. That is, from the Chinese truck Foton and comes equipped with this Chinese plant in Beijing.

Group executives Gas such a decision simply explained simply. The new Nizhny Novgorod «Three Tonka» «Valdai» is a fairly narrow market niche of cargo transportation in cities. He, Valdai, will have to work in cramped conditions of cargo and warehouse courtyards, because ordinary gases will not fit. And since the development of a new bad cabin is not checked, it is easier to cooperate with the Chinese partner Foton. Moreover, the production program of Gaza in «Valdai» is only 3000 trucks per year.

Everything is clear, the solution is optimal and verified from the point of view of the economy. But, as it turned out, the largest domestic producer of KAMAZ freight equipment went in the same way.

Within the framework of the program for diversifying its model range, the Kamsky Auto Higgy has long been tolerated plans to create a modern line of medium-room under its brand. And the other day in Naberezhnye Chelny, a presentation was held for the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishoustina, who at the beginning of June a cargoant visited. With him was a representative delegation. At the presentation, for the first time KAMAZ showed a compass truck, he was immediately corrected by the competitor to Gazovsky models.

In the photo, published on the website of the President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov, immediately striking the fact that the cabin of the new Komet truck «Compass», well, very much reminds the Babe-blind Cabin of the Jac Truck, which in turn inspired by Japanese Isuzu N-Series from the beginning 2000s.

Thus, the Chinese cabin is incorporated for another Russian truck. This conclusion can be made from the presentation.

Unfortunately, during the presentation, technical details about the new «compass» were not disclosed. As long as the following is known. The very demonstration sample of the «compass» with the onboard platform and a two-axis chassis «Ninth-» (competitor «Lawn Next»), that is, we are talking about the «heavy» modification of the car. In general, the KAMAZ «Compass» family will include

Also it became known that

And yet, returning to the topic of the cabin, judging by the interior of the cabin, on the architecture of the «Compass» interior

Summing up, we note that the use of the Chinese cabin for the new family of KAMAZ is also dictated by economic reasons.
