Produced 1965-1977. In 1970 it got an update and was named MAZ-500A. It had 100 mm longer wheelbase and 500kg bigger max payload.

First experimental models were made in 1958 already. One reason that production was delayed was that they were unable to produce the eninges for it earlier. Full production started in 1965 but small amount of cars were produced serially starting from 1963.

Compared to MAZ-200 the engine was now under the cabin making the car a little bit lighter and payload increased by 500kg. In the same time fuel consumption was about 10% lower.
