Build­ing guns and cars is ba­si­cally the same...

If you can make an AK-47 as­sault ri­fle, you can build a car, right? So goes the think­ing at Kalash­nikov who’ve made this, the CV-1 con­cept. It touts a 90kWh bat­tery pack, trans­mit­ted into mo­tive force via a ‘revo­lu­tion­ary in­verter’. And be­lieve us, ‘revo­lu­tion­ary’ isn’t a term just thrown around in Rus­sia. So, de­spite look­ing like a ra­zor crossed with a Lada, the CV-1 will sprint to 62mph in about six and cruise for more than 200 miles. It’s based on the IZH-2125 Kombi, which is def­i­nitely a car we’ve heard of be­fore.
