Putin Jokes On Driving Tesla Car: Why Not? We Don’t Drive Carts or Tanks Anymore!

3672 ratings | 780673 views
Credit to RT Play https://www.facebook.com/RTvids Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has tried driving various foreign electric cars, and may even buy one himself. Because, believe it or not, it is not all carts and tanks that people drive in Russia. When asked by a journalist whether he could see himself buying a Tesla car, Putin replied: "Why not?" The Russian leader was speaking during the plenary session at the Russian Energy Week. “We are open, we buy and sell – we buy everything that is useful for us, and sell everything that is profitable. Therefore, there is nothing special about it. Do you think that we will only drive carts – or tanks? No, we don’t drive carts anymore,” he said, RIA Novosti reports. And Putin certainly seems to know his stuff when it comes to the latest eco-friendly motor technology. “Our [Russian] manufacturers, who dream about electric vehicle production, have shown me some of these cars. I’m familiar with American, Asian – in particular Japanese – electric car manufacturers,” he said, adding that he has experience of driving such vehicles. Praising their fast, efficient and maneuverable nature, Putin added: “I like these vehicles, especially the modern ones. “They are very good for cities because we don’t need emissions in places where lots of people live. But I think that natural gas vehicle fuel is more eco-friendly at the moment.” Tesla was founded in 2003 with a mission to create electric vehicles that “can be better, quicker and more fun to drive than gasoline cars.” Support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/TeamRussiaInsider Visit us! http://russia-insider.com/en Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RussiaInsider?ref=aymt_homepage_panel Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RussiaInsider

Vladimir Vladimirovich will for sure, not be so dumb as to buy ill-functioning, unreliable and expensive U.S.-American trash. He might one day, drive a H²-f-cell electric vehicle Made in Germany, developed in co-operation with: www.clean-energy-bonn.org

Why would anyone want to drive those ugly and dangerous tesla cars? Already there have been a few accidents because of auto pilot on them. They are dangerous and I predict tesla will be out of business in a few years.

My advice all the dead bodies of Successful people should not be cremated, buried or left as carcass ,it should be through in space so that people can tell really that father to space rather good people yell he might in heaven and bad wisher tell that he might be definitely in hell.Because nobody has really seen heaven and hell.Now atleast people can do studies how dead bodies behave in space, is it a better option, what will happen to them if they are left in space.

I respect Putin response to a stupid questions. They seem to love ask Idiotic moronic questions about nonsensical topics of Putin. I wish these Idiotic morons anywhere would grow up. It just shows how childish the world is becoming anymore when college educated adults ask such stupidity of world leaders. And to think that one day these Idiotic morons will be leading Humanity into the next dark ages with this ideas.

It would be interesting to see a Russian electric car, however it would probably be garbage like everything else they make...
Teemu M. (1 year ago)
So the Russians believe that the electric car is a luxury car, available for those you can afford it but not to be mass produced in Russia?
