    The design can't be serious, right??

    It's like a combo of 1970's car design and modern electric technology.

    It makes the current market's ugly EVs look so much nicer. Well, I won't name them since it is subjective and some of the members may get insulted for driving them.

    Time will tell how many Russians will buy this over Tesla cars.

    I don't know if this thread is serious or a joke.
    But imbedded in the first sentence is the word "sleek."
    It makes me think this a joke. Right?

    It should get more than that (if it was half aerodynamic). If the M3 LR has 75 kWh and gets almost 500 km...

    It doesn't look like there is enough room under the fenders for the front wheels to even turn.

    Doesn't look like a real production car.

    Part of Putin's strategy to conquer the heart of EV aficionados?
    A Kalashnikov Hyperloop I would have understood. I mean: barrel, bullet train...
