This camper is potentially perfect to become the cheapest choice for Italians who intend to take a nice camping trip. What’s the problem? The country where it is built is not very friendly!
The war is ruining not just business of all the western houses that have rightly decided to cease its activities in Russia at least until Putin returns to milder advice regarding the Ukrainian situation but also of the Russian houses themselves such as Lada, the main brand of the huge Euro-Asian country which is in a moment of serious crisis.
Cold War stuff
The geopolitical scenarios we are experiencing in these very difficult months they are worthy of movies how War Games or Red Dawn with the world again split into two blocs – with China and other non-aligned countries in between to take advantage of it – since hostilities started in Ukraine. Putin’s call to hundreds of thousands of reservists does not seem to ease the situation at all …
But how are the Russian brands that produce cars in this period faring? Easy: very bad. We have already found out through the well-informed English press that Lada, the main Russian brand which produces cars once exported here too in Italy was forced to return to production methods that they haven’t seen each other since the 1970s. Nice stuff!
Farewell to the camper
Among other things, Lada has recently been abandoned by Renault, a French group with intentions to sell its share in the brand to the highest bidder. All these factors mean that an interesting camping vehicle produced by the Russian house will hardly be able to arrive in Europe as we have long hoped for. This is the Lada Granta in the camper version, a vehicle we have already talked about in the past.
There Lada Granta it is originally a small three-volume mid-range converted into a camper thanks to a forward-looking conversion. The price in Euros of this little gem around four meters long and rather spacious for its size? Before the war, it was only 13,000 Euros, a real dream for campers. Numbers in hand, the cost has already risen by several thousand euros due to sanctions and embargoes against the Asian Euro nation.

Another problem, without the Renault partnership, the already few hopes that the Granta could also arrive in Europe are practically nil. A decidedly insignificant problem when compared to the humanitarian tragedy which is happening in a country very close to Europe. But it remains a real shame.
