Russia will produce new electric car (EV) in 2020…

MOSCOW, August 8. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade in cooperation with major international automaker will announce production of a new electric vehicle on the Russian market in 2020, Deputy Minister Alexander Morozov said on Thursday. “We will announce production of the next following electric car in the coming jointly with the largest international automakers, which have rightfully become the Russian ones at present because they have assets in Russia and commitments on deep localizatio

Russian Engineering and Manufacturing Сompany is focused on development and implementation of non-standard technical solutions and advanced technologies in Electromechanics and Powertrain in International and Russian market. All for just $7000 total price…

Main Development Parameters:

1) Flexibility
2) High road performance
3) Economic expediency
4) Ecological performance.

Usage of advanced technologies and up-to-date approaches allows us to develop transmissionless 4×4 platform with capsular cab connection.


Сapsular cab and chassis connection allows to produce on one platform vehicles of different purposes from sports and entertainment cars till utility and commercial vehicles. Under this project the line of electric vehicles could be produced with category A, B, C, D with high level of passive and active safety (city cars, social, municipal and commercial vehicles)

High road performance:

Electronic ABS/ESP. Each wheel control of drive torque, power and speed of rotation makes possible to realize any “electronic assistants” without component base changing/ adding.

Combined brake system with separated electric and hydraulic circuit solves all issues of safety, reliability and maximum of energy recuperation.

Induction e-wheels of our own production provide the highest specific drive torque with power demand less on 30-55% then world analogues for 100km drive range.

Economic expediency:

The technology of induction e-wheels production does not need the difficult materials and components. Absence of expensive torque transfer mechanisms (transmission, reduction units, drive gear) on platform provides low production cost and high reliability of service.

Ecological performance:

Zero emission of e-motors combined with service system, changing and recovery of electric batteries realize the wildest imaginings of the clean air and low price-oriented day-to-day transport use.

I have been following this for awhile and it really looks as if it has and will happen. The little car is ideal for Moscow and similar cities in Russia…

Lets watch and see what is going to be the future of said vehicle…
