Recommended Posts

GAZ Group Press Release  /  December 29, 2016

January 1, 2017 marks the 85th anniversary of the GAZ Group’s historic Gorky vehicle plant.

The factory, constructed in just 18 months, is associated with the large-scale transition of the country to automotive transport.

On January 29, 1932, the first Ford AA-based one-and-half metric ton GAZ AA truck rolled off the assembly line. Since then, the Gorky automobile plant has been a key supplier of light and medium trucks.

Over 985,000 GAZ AAs were built in USSR from 1932 to 1950. The GAZ version had a cargo capacity of 1,500 kg (3,300 lb). A model with stronger 50 HP engine and wartime simplifications is often named GAZ–MM, after the engine.

Since its founding, GAZ has produced over 18 million cars and trucks.

Today, GAZ Group’s Gorky plant today utilizes the latest technologies of the global automotive industry to develop and manufacture motor vehicles. The plant produces a wide range of light and medium-duty commercial trucks.
