'Electric Supercar' unveiled by Kalashnikov to challenge Tesla

Technology Inceptions

Kalashnikov, known for its automatic assault rifle, launched an electric hatchback car at a military expo in Moscow. The car design was inspired by a rare 1970s model. Russia’s most famous gun-maker now steps into building an electric car as a competition for TESLA with the new technology.

Development of "revolutionary inverter” adds on to the cutting-edge elements for the "electric supercar". The vehicle can travel 350 kilometres on one charge, accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in six seconds, and “revolutionary inverter” convert electricity from direct to alternating current.

Kalashnikov believes they will be able to compete with Tesla, eventually. “We are talking about competing precisely with Tesla, because at present it is a successful project in the field of electric vehicles”.
