Rare video about the production of electric vehicles in the USSR. Be sure to see to understand that at the time we were “ahead of the rest” in development of such technologies.
In the USSR in 1971, was planning to release a standard electric car! And this at a time when the term “lithium polymer batteries” even though the project did not exist, and batteries for electric vehicles was a big part of the machine. Now of course this documentary looks naive, if you look at the latest designs of type Honda Insight, Toyota Prius or Tesla Roadster.
However, it has been over 30 years, and if you compare the pace of development of electric vehicles with a giant leap in the development of gasoline cars in the early days of their formation, it is a pity that we still go in stinking of gasoline, lumbering monsters.
