For the Russian automaker raising prices has become a pattern. New price lists have appeared in the cluster KVIRING DRIVE VK SHOP in a social network “Vkontakte”. According to him, the price increase will affect the line of “AVTOVAZ”, including “folk” LADA Granta. The car will gain in value at least 5 000. Expert figured out what caused this situation.

Another price increase is due to many factors. The first one can be called “the cry of the soul” brand from Togliatti — the instability of the ruble and the pandemic crisis, coupled with the dependence on foreign components. Thus, LADA Granta consists of 400 original components, 260 of which are purchased from foreign suppliers. In the end the model remains dependent on the dollar and the Euro.

The main competitors of the flagship models LADA Granta and LADA Vesta is considered the KIA Rio and Hyundai Solaris. Over half of “Asians” went up by 2.6 and 2.4%, respectively, as “Grant” and “Vesta” added to the price of 6.3%. In the pursuit of “Koreans” the Russian model have a chance get to close to him, but only at a price. Perhaps such a policy, the company shall prepare motorists for the exit of the second generation models, which will become even more expensive, but this marketing ploy it is difficult to call fair to the potential buyers.

Another factor considered production automation. The regular number of employees of “AVTOVAZ” is 35 thousand people. Despite the fact that the company conducts an annual reduction of staff resource spent on salaries and allowances. Against this background, more and more European and Asian manufacturers are moving to robotic Assembly. Robots perform the process from Assembly to delivery of the vehicle to the warehouse, saving time and money.

Whatever caused the rise in price — a marketing ploy or “cry of the soul” — many drivers increase the price of “budget” LADA Granta are not happy. The justification for this, according to the drivers, could serve to improve the quality of the Assembly or the vehicle’s equipment, however, is that prices are rising, and the car is “worth” on the spot.


Stepan Menshikov boldly indicated the place of Ilya Yabbarov in the team

Yabbarov began to give in, succumbing to the persecution of Stepan.

Ilya Yabbarov is the leader of the team, the participants have always listened to his opinion. But with the arrival of Stepan Menshchikov on the project, Ilyusha verbally began to receive in the face and everything turned upside down. The conflict between Stepan and Ilya is gaining momentum, men are crossing borders, insulting each other.

“The toilet brush of the project” House-2 “, – so designated Yabbarova Menshchikov. On a recent broadcast, showman Stepan made a gift for Ilya in the form of a toilet set, but of course Yabbarov did not accept it. Stepan is trying in any way to humiliate Ilya, he is not quite bad at it. He composes insulting tales in which he belittles Yabbarov by calling “the ruff knight,” Pinocchio, who can go into any gap. Apparently, Stepan is outraged by the cunning of Ilya, who left and came to the project dozens of times. Many subscribers of Ilya sided with Stepan.

Back in 2016, Andrei Chuev dedicated Yabbarov to the only knight in the entire “House-2” toilet room, while laying a brush on Ilya’s head. Stepan Menshchikov once again thus boldly indicated the place of Ilya Yabbarov in the team: “Yabbarov is like a toilet brush, not stable and squeals like a pig.” Many of the guys in the team are silent, do not try to help solve this situation, reassure Ilya, who is very emotional and in a fit of anger swears with his mother-in-law, while collecting things with shouts: “I will leave the project.” Yabbarov allowed himself a lot: he humiliated women, insulted his relatives. Now Menshchikov puts in place Ilya – to the toilet. Competition or does Stepan make a show, raising his rating?

2K also withdraws their games from the NVIDIA GeForce Now streaming service

NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW game streaming service has come under pressure lately. Big names like them Activision Blizzard and Bethesda have separated from the streaming service and now added to that list is another game editor, 2K games.

Similar to a story we heard at the beginning of last week, Activision Blizzard mentions that they never gave NVIDIA permission to broadcast their games on the platform, particularly after a beta period expired. So that seems to be a contractual disagreement, perhaps it will be resolved between the parties since in the end it is only currency. Nvidia noted on their blog that they are talking to 2K Games in an attempt to bring the games back to the servers.

EPYC games

In other news, NVIDIA is adding some titles, Tim Sweeney on Twitter notes that they will support the platform

GeForce NOW is a game streaming service, with a free account on this service you can play one hour a day for free, and for RTX options or longer play time, you need to subscribe and pay a monthly fee. GeForce NOW is only for streaming games that you already own from a powerful cloud computer and therefore in effect a time of “server rental” for streaming your own games and connecting through let’s say Steam.
