AvtoVAZ unveils El Lada electric car

Russia’s largest car maker AvtoVAZ has launched a serial production of electric cars.

First five El Lada cars were transported to the Stavropol district on Wednesday to offer ‘green taxi’ services in the Mineral Waters resort.

With the maximum speed range at 130 km/h, a Lada electric car has a 60 Watt engine.

To cover the distance of up to 150 km the car should first have its engine charged for about eight hours.
