Move Over, Elon Musk's Tesla: Kalashnikov Unveils 'Electric Supercar'

.

https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/move...percar-1905222


Quote:
MOSCOW, RUSSIA: Russian arms maker Kalashnikov on Thursday presented its new electric car inspired by a rare 1970s model, saying the new technology will rival Elon Musk's Tesla.
The brand, best known for the AK-47 machine gun, presented the decidedly retro-looking pale blue prototype, the CV-1, at a defense expo outside Moscow.

The look was inspired by a Soviet hatchback model developed in the 1970s called "Izh-Kombi," a statement on the Kalashnikov website said.
Quote:
Its foray into electric vehicles however was met with mixed reactions from Russians. Comments to the news on the company's official Facebook page ranged from "cyberpunk" to "Izh-Zombie".

"Your tanks are great, but it would be better if you stayed away from cars," one user wrote.

I like it: typical Russian engineering (brute force overkill)

I saw some headlines about this thing on my phone between classes and legitimately thought it was a joke.

Body reminds me of late-1970's Ford Escort and Mercury Cortina.
