RAF-2910 is referees electric minivan designed specifically for the Moscow 1980 Olympics. The vehicle, based on RAF-2203 developed a speed of 30 km/h with cruising range of 100 km. The machine was supposed to serve the competition in marathon and race walking, so its main properties were to be quiet and preferably without toxic emissions. For these purposes, the designers of the Riga plant designed electric vehicle, equipped with doors on both sides, turning seat, folding table and chair, fridge in the cabin. In the rear was a sealed compartment for batteries. Some of the RAF-2910s had massive news swivel display on the roof. Some models received another "roof" of the solar panels.
