    The Russian maker of the AK-47 built a Soviet-style electric car it says can rival Tesla

    The maker of the famous AK-47 rifle this week showed off a concept electric car it says can rival Tesla.
    The Russian company Kalashnikov launched the Soviet-style CV-1 at the Army 2018 military exposition in Moscow.
    Kalashnikov told the Russian news outlet RBC on Thursday that it expected the car to "keep up" with Tesla.
    It can run for 217 miles and reach 62 mph in six seconds, according to the company.

    The Russian company behind the AK-47 launched a concept electric car at a Moscow military expo on Thursday — and it claims it can rival Elon Musk's Tesla.

    The company, Kalashnikov, said it based the design of the new CV-1 on a 1970s Soviet hatchback, the Izh 2125 "Kombi," and it couldn't look more different from the futuristic Tesla range with which it wants to compete.

    The car's specifications, according to Kalashnikov's website, include a battery capacity of 90 kilowatt-hours, 220 kilowatts of power, and a cruising range of 217 miles (350 kilometers).\
    It says the car goes from zero to 62 mph in six seconds. The CV-1 is still in the concept phase, and Kalashnikov hasn't suggested a launch date or a price.

    It introduced the brand-new model at Army 2018, an international forum showcasing 28,000 military items from 1,500 companies where earlier this week Kalashnikov unveiled a weird-looking golden military robot.

    When asked by the Russian news outlet RBC how the CV-1 was better than a Tesla, Sofia Ivanova, a Kalashnikov representative, "could not name the specific advantages of the Kalashnikov car," it reported.

    Ivanova also told RBC: "The car is competing with Tesla because it's currently a successful electric vehicle project. We expect to at least keep up with it."

    It must have an incredible drive train, because they surely didn't spend any money on design.

    Funny how a tool to get you from here to there has to be stylish. Ford did a good job on us. "$500 more for red paint!"
    If not now, then when?
