Billionaire Elon Musk and his electric car & # 39; s Tesla got serious competition. The Russian legend of Kalashnikov opposed the American manufacturer.
The company introduced the latest Russian electric vehicle. His design, however, has been asleep for four decades.
The Russian arms manufacturer unveiled its concept of electrically powered CV-1 at the Armija 2018 fair. If you remember Soviet creations from the 70s, make no mistake. The Kalashnikov himself is proud of the design of Moskvača Iž 2125. This car was produced between 1973 and 1997. Other features resemble Ladu VAZ 2104.
Whether it is retro or somewhere in the dark corner, they have found the original pieces that they have crushed together, they are not known. The factory in which Moscow originally produced was the Kalashnikov group last year. The original Soviet production and its quality also remind of the large gap between the parts and their poor fit. Nevertheless, the spokeswoman for the company proudly stated: "We want to compete directly with Tesla and we expect to be able to keep up with it." He did not speak about precise parameters and specific advantages. Aerodynamics will not belong there.
