HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1970 at the VAZ automobile company under the name of Torpedo. The team played in the Soviet Second League until the dissolution of USSR. In 1988 the club was renamed after VAZ's Lada brand.

Since entering the Russian First Division in 1992 Lada experienced a number of divisional movements. They played in the Top Division in 1994 and 1996, in the First Division in 1992–1993, 1995, 1997–1998, 2000–2003 and 2006, and in the Second Division in 1999 and 2004–2005. Both spells in the Top Division were unsuccessful, as Lada finished last. Lada reached the semifinal of the Russian Cup in 2002/03. Lada Togliatti failed to obtain the First Division licence and were thus relegated to Second Division in 2007.
