The name of the district literally means "automotive plant district", as it grew around the production facilities of the Gorky Automotive Plant, which were constructed in this area in 1930-1932. The administrative district was created in 1931 from the land that formerly had been part of Kanavinsky City District and the suburban Dzerzhinsky District. At the time, the district's population was around 30,000.


The Nizhny Novgorod International Airport (Strigino) is located within Avtozavodsky District.
