The “zero” exhaust standard was introduced in a number of European countries back in 1988, and in 1992 it was replaced by the Euro-1 standard. But in Russia, before the May decree of the government, Euro-0 was never used: our country joined the program to reduce the amount of harmful substances in the exhaust only in 2005, immediately adopting the Euro-2 standard.
It was under this standard that anti-sanction Ladas were previously certified, for which Bosch engine control units are no longer supplied. But the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant took the maximum from the new law – and certified some models according to the lower limit.
Instead of the ZMZ-40906 engine (Euro-5 class), the ZMZ-40911 engine, which was originally developed under the Euro-3 standards, was installed on the anti-sanction “Loaves” and “Hunters”. As follows from the operating instructions, injectors, crankshaft and camshaft position sensors, as well as pressure and air temperature and throttle position, coolant temperature and detonation sensors were previously supplied by the same Bosch. About the components of which companies are now used for the “dirty” motor, the UAZ do not report.
A version with an environmentally friendly engine is also available, but it is more expensive: if you buy a nine-seater UAZ-2206 all-terrain vehicle with an Euro-0 engine, you will save 25 thousand rubles (1.355 million rubles instead of 1.38 million), while other models will cost 20 thousand rubles (for example, for the UAZ “Hunter” they ask for 1.375 million rubles). And the rear axle differential lock has also disappeared from the list of options, although for cars with a Euro-5 engine it can be ordered for 48 thousand rubles.
This is not the first simplification that UAZs have been subjected to since the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions. In June, the production of Patriot SUVs and passenger Loafs without ABS and the ERA-GLONASS module began, and the anti-crisis Patriots also lost airbags from mandatory equipment. At the end of July, regional publications reported an increase in the cost of UAZ vehicles by a third.
