Base on the Lada Kalina, the EL LADA can travel 150km (93 miles) on a single charge at speeds of up to 130km/h (80 mph). Recharging its batteries takes 8 hours.
The EL LADA EVs will roll off the assembly line this fall at their plant in Togliatti in central Russia’s Samara region.
The first batch of electric cars will go to taxi operators in the southern Stavropol region.
According to the manufacturer’s website, the price of an EL LADA hovers around one million rubles ($33,000).[source: The Voice of Russia]
