Kalashnikov unveils new Brutalist electric car

If this is cheap enough and like the Checker or early VW Beetles, maaaybe I could stomach it.  Damn thing looks like a Simca.

How does it turn?  It looks like the tires are way to big for the wheel wells.

If the price was right I'd consider it.  I like Checker Marathon boxy, and this looks like it has some headroom for it's size.  If they can fill that price niche in electric cars the way the VW did in gas cars in the 50's - 60's it might sell.

Looks about as welcoming as an AK-47.
