Kalashnikov launches Tesla-rivalling electric vehicle

Russian armament company Kalashnikov, best known as the inventor and manufacturer of the AK 47 automatic rifle, has announced they want become Russia's Tesla with the introduction of an electric concept vehicle.

Russian defence business Kalashnikov has unveiled an electric vehicle prototype which it said will rival cars produced by Tesla.

Kalashnikov's press office stated that the electric cars will let them stand on a global platform-and can compete with high-ranking electric vehicle producers such as Tesla.

The Kalashnikov CV-1 has an electric range of 350 Kms and gets a 220 KT electric motor with a top speed of 100 km/h.

Concern "Kalashnikov" is developing its own electric vehicle, which in the future will compete with Tesla auto Elon musk.

The CV-1 hasn't been well received on social media.

For the first time since Wimbledon in June 2017, a tournament will have the entire Big Four in the men's field: five-time U.S. If you do not now have a subscription with Amazon, you can get a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime by registering an account.

The auto was unveiled at the ARMY Forum - which describes itself as the "world's leading exhibition of arms and military equipment". "We were inspired by the experience of world market leaders when creating our concept". However, the CV-1 is only a prototype.

Kalashnikov is using the CV-1 as a platform to demonstrate its electric powertrain components, developed in-house. Upon first glance, the auto, known as the CV-1, is pretty unassuming - it lacks the flash of a Tesla Model S or even a Chevy Bolt, at least.

Earlier this week, the company was mocked after unveiling its new manned robot called "Igorek" - or "little Igor".

Kalashnikov has for a time been trying to expand its brand beyond that of an arms manufacturer, launching an eclectic mix of products such as lines of clothing, umbrellas and mobile-phone covers.

Kalashnikov hasn't given up though, with plans to reveal a new version of the robot in 2020.
