Kalashnikov Company is Going to Make an Electric Car

Posted on November 2, 2018 by tim


A Kalashnikov corp – the one that is responsible for AKs rifles has presented an electric car recently. The name for the concept is CV-1 and it’s based on a Soviet cult Moskvitch Kombi car.

The promised power for the car is 220 kW and peak power of 500 kW, with battery giving 350 km of range.

Not yet clear when it goes into production, if it will at all, but this is what we have right now.

    This prototype is one of the best jokes we had in the past year : no way the car can turn its wheels, and the huge fans at the back are seemingly there to cool down the system. Just plainly ridiculous !

  2. Harold says:

    Wasn’t this an April fools?

    Com’on Kalashnikov couldn’t you come up with a better design and color? A 1970’s Soviet era design and powder baby boy blue. Really? Cars cost millions to mass produce and you start with a 60 year old body design…..this can’t be serious.

  4. Stan says:

    I like the retro design (not sure about colour though lol)

  5. Tutan Camon says:

    The car is full auto,or only semi?

  6. Tutan Camon says:

    Te handle of the door,is from Moskvich 408.

    They will definitely take on Tesla, BMW, Nissan, Audi etc electric cars with this
    In USSR times they would not care about form, fit, finish and demand, but times have changed.

  8. Douglas says:

    No one will buy this 60 year old body design. This car is a joke.

  9. Mittens says:

    Ah, the Moskvitch! My dad used to drive it, it was literally indestructible and on rare occasions when it did brake he could repair it himself with his bare hands while today you need like 10 robotics technicians and 15 electricians to repair anything with all those electronics inside

  10. uaz-man says:

    This is not Moskvits, it’s a IZH-2125.

  11. David says:

    I like it … I’ll buy one !!

  12. kwhunter says:

    Maybe it’s a technology demonstrator?! Who knows what advanced technology is hidden under that ugly body?! On a different note, I’m not aware of the Russians being creative as industrial designers; I have to give them credit for creating very cheap products that function very well but at the expense of form and finish.

  13. Douglas says:

    The windows are heavily tinted to obscure the interior which is probably empty….eh.
