People’s Car

In 1974 PRR (People’s Republic of Romania) announced a new tender to support the creation of a new passenger car.
The aim of the tender was to create a vehicle that is cheap and reliable enough for the citizens of the country.

BVG was given 3 years to develop the new car, and in the absence of a source of force, they only proceeded with the bodywork work. In the spring of 1976, PRR entered into a merger with the CCCP (Soviet Union) and took over the 2101 engine of the VAZ factory.

This is how BVG 1200 was born.

It’s not just the 1200s for the eastern and local markets. From 1976, with the help of VW, they were also prepared for the Western market.
