MOSCOW, 27 Jan. AvtoVAZ from November can stop the update utility fleet, wrote on Tuesday the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the dealer of the plant and a source close to the company.
Under the terms of the program, the government compensates for the discounts that manufacturers give to the buyers of new cars in exchange for accepting second-hand trade-in or recycling. In the first half of the programme has been allocated 15 billion rubles. To continue in the second half of the Ministry of industry and trade promised in the summer it was 5 billion rubles, and in September to 2.5 billion rubles.
At first the amount of the document will be signed in the coming days, but for 2.5 billion, the situation remains uncertain, says a person close to AVTOVAZ. And given the market situation and their own capabilities AVTOVAZ does not want to risk, giving discounts at his own expense, he stresses.

He also fears that the company might raise prices. This year Lada rose in price four times already.
