Pravaig new Electric SUV
Even though the corporation hasn’t formally announced the name of the e-SUV, several hints from the company have convinced us that the new SUV will be called “Defy”
More information could be drawn from the teaser image released by Pravaig. We can infer that despite its boxy shape, it has svelte stylistic features, such as a single-piece LED tail light that spans the width of the tailgate. The word “PRAVAIG” is inscribed directly beneath the tail light. The Pravaig Defy will be available with a single-pane sunroof for the front occupants and a bigger unit for the back occupant, according to the teased pictures. We expect the launch to be anytime in 2023.
We believe the new eSUV will have a range of 504km with a top speed of 200 km/h on a single full charge. The EV will have rapid charging capabilities, and the quick charge will be appropriate. In just 30 minutes, you could charge it up to 80%. According to Pravaig, the SUV can go from 0 to 100 kph in under 4.3 seconds.
The SUV will have an onboard Wi-Fi system and plugs for 220V power for the back passengers. Additionally, the front and back seats. Devialet speakers, a PM 2.5 filter, USB type-C, and wireless charging are all included. What remains to be seen, though, is how many of these technologies will make it into the final automobile.

Good. But India is not focussing on retrofitting of existing ICE vehicles. Buying a vehicle double the cost of ICE vehicle is not worth it especially four wheelers. Retrofitting should be made easy by law. Technology is there.
