Russia Develops Electric Car

Kalashnikov, Russian manufacturing firm, has wheeled out a retro-looking electric car that it says will challenge give Elon Musk's Tesla in the market. 

The company that makes  the famous AK-47 assault rifle presented prototype vehicle, in startling eggshell blue, (the CV-1), at an event near Moscow. It said the CV-1, inspired by a Soviet hatchback created in the 1970s, was a revolutionary cutting-edge supercar.

On Thursday the company declared  that the CV-1 car featured a number of ‘complex systems’ with technology that enable them to stand in the ranks of global electric car producers such as Tesla.

It added that, when fully developed, the car would have a top speed higher than normal electric vehicles and would be able to travel 220 miles (350 km) on a single charge.

No details of possible prices have yet been released.

Kalashnikov has been taking its brand in different directions and recently launched a clothing line and a catalogue of personal items ranging from umbrellas to smartphone covers.

 Its decision to develop electric vehicles was met with mixed reactions in Moscow.
