About creating a truly “people’s car” in the land of the Soviets was conceived in earnest after the Second world war.
When the Soviet Union seriously thinking on creating a car for the people who would be available to a large number of consumers, designers began to offer a huge number of concepts. However, most of them never went into production. One of the first and most interesting “humpback”.
History has shown that sooner or later every country, where there is an active industry, there is a need to create a car. Not just machines, and so to say “people’s car”. We are talking about a vehicle that could be produce in large quantities and which, thus, would be available to the General public. This period has been in the automotive industry in Europe, in the United States, it came in the Soviet Union.
About creating a truly “people’s car” in the land of the Soviets was conceived in earnest after the Second world war. The economy recovered, the industry has grown and welfare of citizens. It’s time to create a vehicle that will become an essential attribute of the citizen, to ease his life.
At the beginning of the development of the first hunchback, the power of the car was fully loaded, so for the production of cars decided to adapt another company “Kommunar”, which subsequently became widely known Zaporizhia automobile plant.
As expected to all new concepts at the first “people’s car” was set. Designers and engineers ate his bread not in vain and pointed to the judgment of the Commission, dozens of design options and technical equipment budget the car. The options were many, but perhaps the most interesting version was the car “Squirrel.” Now you can see in the photo. To produce “Squirrel” was planned in two versions: urban and rural roads. However, the car failed to pass the test and therefore the series never got.
