The price of Kama-1 is 1 million rubles, but this does not include subsidies

Izvestia newspaper has published new details about the compact electric crossover Kama-1. It turns out that the joint development of KAMAZ and NTI SPbPU is ready for mass production, which can be launched as early as next year. The price of the electric car has also been determined – 1.2 million dollars.

Electric crossover KAMAZ will be able to drive 300 km on a single charge and accelerate to 150 km / h

Since the car is ready for mass production, then its characteristics are finalized. It is reported that autonomy when using a standard 33 kWh battery reaches 300 km (in city mode – up to 250 km), and the maximum speed is 150 km / h. Dynamics – at the gasoline cars level: acceleration to 60 km / h – in 3 seconds. That is, it will take about 7-8 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h. This is not bad for a class C or C + car, but the Kama-1 is much more compact – its length is only 3.4 m, and its width is 1.7 m. The developers believe that the electric car will be of interest to both ordinary buyers – individual users- for example, in car-sharing or delivery services.

As for the price, there is one important nuance: from 1 million rubles, which will be asked for the basic version, it will be possible to subtract 25% – this subsidy is provided under the updated concessional lending program launched this summer. It applies to the purchase of Russian-made electric vehicles. However, the indicated price will be valid only if the sales volume is not less than 20,000 cars per year. And this is a lot. For comparison, in 2019, 22,565 fairly popular Mazda CX-5 crossovers were sold in Russia. For a surcharge of 100-200 thousand rubles, the Kama-1 will be equipped with intelligent driver assistance systems – the car will receive automatic cruise control and will be able to park on its own.

Tests of the Kama-1 prototype will be completed within a couple of weeks. And it will be possible to look at the car live on December 10-11 at the VUZPROMEXPO-2020 exhibition. It will take place at the Expocentre Fairgrounds in Moscow.
