Kalashnikov showcases CV-1 electric retromobile

Kalashnikov showcases CV-1 electric retromobile

- Based on a 60s Russian wagon

- Gets a 200 miles range and 0-100kmph in 6 seconds

Kalashnikov, the most famous name in the arms and ammunition industry, is venturing out into automobiles and that too, electric. So, they built their first concept, the CV-1, and trust us, it looks adorable.

And that is because Kalashnikov has built it out of the body-shell of an IZH-2125 Kombi, a Russian wagon from the 1960s. Painted in the powder blue hue that has been made famous by British manufacturers like Jaguar, the CV-1 is a pure restomod with LED headlamps strips stacked up in the front, white multi-spoke alloys and old metal handles on the doors.

Kalashnikov aims to be a rival to Tesla and they might be right to an extent. Because, it accelerates from standstill to 100kmph in less than six seconds and if you are easy on the throttle thereafter, it will keep going for at least 350 more kilometres. Judging by Kalashnikov’s credentials, if they say something about their products, the performance will certainly match their claims and sometimes might even better them.
