Kremenchug Automobile Plant has plans to create a dump truck with best layout more than 20 years. The first prototypes appeared in the 80’s, but, for obvious reasons, they remain experimental. Only in the past year KrAZ presented the public with a tri-axial truck KrAZ-7238C4 with the wheel formula 6×4. In addition, during the past year at the plant said that are actively seeking a partner for the serial industrial implementation of this project. Apparently, such a partner is found.
They are likely to become Chinese Automobile Holding Shaanxi Automobile, which by last year took on the Chinese market 4 th place in terms of production. Already known that Shaanxi has set for the first sample KrAZ-7238C4 cab and bridges. However, the Chinese stall, despite its German origins, looks clearly outdated, and the plant is not yet ready to say for sure whether it will stand on a new dump truck KrAZ.
