Later, A. Dekalenkov designed 3 new prototypes of the logo (the first one is on the picture). On the logos was a lodia ship in the shape of a Cyrillic 'V', standing for Volga river. The logo was never used.

Designer Yuriy Danilov updated the prototype and Dekalenkov didn't like it, but it should've become the first official VAZ logo.

On first VAZ 2101's appeared a logo with "TOLYATTI" written on it, it is unknown who added it, on the first 30 cars FIAT accidentally wrote "ТОЛЬRТТИ", instead of "ТОЛЬЯТТИ", mistaking Latin "r" with Cyrillic "ya".
