Rosatom State Corporation will take part in the development of a new domestic electric vehicle Atom, which was reported to journalists by the company’s CEO Alexei Likhachev.
We have already entered the project. Negotiations are underway. Well, at least we have energy sources behind us, we have acquired the appropriate technology while we are carrying out SKD.
In the future, “full localization” is planned at the Kaliningrad plant for the production of drives, owned by Rosatom, launched in October.
We will move to increase our, “Rosatom”, share in the technical competencies of this car.”
