Car a few months ago Share Tweet Pin Share As the automotive world continues to chase after Tesla and its electric vehicle designs, more and more companies are looking towards developing their own sustainability-focused vehicles. At a defense expo outside of Moscow, established Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov unexpectedly unveiled its electric supercar concept, the CV-1. Undeniably retro-inspired, the prototype vehicle is actually based on ’70s Soviet car brand IZh’s 2125 Kombi. Unveiled in a vintage pale blue color, the CV-1 is said to feature a “revolutionary” inverter that allows the car to travel at a staggering 217 miles on a single charge. If the cutting-edge inverter can pull off the incredible feat, Kalashnikov is poised to become a major player in the electric vehicle market. No other specifications or pricing details just yet, but stay tuned for more information on the Kalashnikov CV-1 electric supercar concept.
