  1. 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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. but this car was already used durin the 80s, the lada’s electro, and also was electric and also was posted in here about it hahahaha, its too funny really
