Five things you need to know about electric IZH-Kombi from Kalashnikov
Top 5 facts about the new project of electro-vehicle on the basis of universal IZH.
Concern “Kalashnikov” has decided, apparently, to surprise not only new weapons, but decided to learn the industry, presenting a prototype of the electric car IZH Kombi (IL-21252) CV-1. Most interesting is that, despite an outdated platform wagon IZH, specifications of the electric vehicle will surprise you. Such data you can find only in super expensive cars Tesla.
So, here are the most important things you should know about the new project from Kalashnikov:
1) the Prototype was created on the basis of IZH-Kombi as the experimental site
It is surprising that the Kalashnikov concern has decided to develop an experimental model of the electric vehicle on the basis of the old Soviet car IZH-Combi. But surprisingly a little work on the design in the style of futurology, even the prototype turned in some space with classic features body. Contrary to the absurd, looks like this car quite unexpectedly and stylish.
2) Powerful power unit CV-1
Despite the obsolete body, filling this car will surprise any world of auto. So according to the data presented by the group, the nominal electrical power of the CV-1 is 299 HP, which is 220 kW.
Maximum (peak) power is 680 HP and 500 kW.
3) Powerful battery
It is logical that for such a powerful electric powertrain, the car should have a good capacious battery. In the end, the engineers have not stinted and installed in the experimental IZH electric battery capacity of 90 kWh.
Evaluation experts that would be enough for 350 km. But this is the ideal. With such aerodynamics of the body, in real conditions, we think the car is unlikely to pass 200 km. But still it is a very good result by international standards.
4) Quick acceleration
Yes, of course this electric car is not a Tesla, but still the message of concern “Kalashnikov”, the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 6 seconds. All this according to designers was possible due to the fact that electric batteries are revolutionary feeds the inverter, which weighs 50 kg, which allows to develop power up to 1.2 MW of payload.
5) Experimental platform will allow in the future to create a true rival electric Tesla
According to the developers the new experimental model of the electric vehicle on the basis of IZH-Kombi will allow in the future to develop a completely new model that might become a full-fledged competitor to the Tesla electric cars. The main advantage of the domestic electric car will certainly low cost and maintainability.
PS I want to add, I hope it’s not a simple PR to draw attention to the concern “Kalashnikov” and a real project that will soon lead to the creation of the first Soviet mass-production passenger car with electric motor for the mass market.
