Russia's native arms manufacturer and maker of the famous AK-47 assault rifle, Kalashnikov, on Thursday revealed its own electric vehicle, saying the technology will compete with that of Elon Musk-promoted Tesla.

When fully developed, the auto would have a top speed several times higher than the electric cars presently manufactured by the company and it would have a range of 350 km on a single charge, Kalashnikov claims.
It is also noted that on 7 August, the founder of Tesla have published several reports about the possible withdrawal of the company from the stock exchange in his microblog on Twitter.
Ivanova also told RBC: "The auto is competing with Tesla because it's now a successful electric vehicle project". Over the years, the company has ventured into new business ranging from clothing to making covers for mobile phones.
Kalashnikov is using the CV-1 as a platform to demonstrate its electric powertrain components, developed in-house.
