  1. What is the cost of New Battery!? Or should one throw the car out after 1,60,000 kms? It's about resale value after 5/10 years
    When the number of Electric cars go up, recharging out of home will be a hassle. Battery technology regarding recharging is not going to change drastically in the next 10 years.

  2. Electric car will be a hit.
    There is just thing that needs to be done.
    It's to standardized the charging system
    Just like USB type C …

    Govt can regulated a mandate to make it compulsory for providing charging systems to the pump owners and even can keep take a charge from the users

    To be honest its more efficient than my Activa.

  3. No, Kona is overpriced. It looks like compact SUV and features are too like compact SUV so why we pay high price just because of electric yeah it does make car coasty but not this much. It should be around 15 to 18 lac range & service cost also high. For example Crysta service cost is just around 3n half thousand only.

  4. Higher range in the city is due to lower speeds and lower losses due to drag. If you drive on a highway at constant average city speed, you will get more range out of an EV than the actual range you get out of driving in city. Meaning, regenerative braking isn't why you have higher range in the city, its just the lower aerodynamic losses. Aerodynamic losses are proportional to the square of the velocity.

  6. The common people have to wait for another five or ten years for a good and practical EV car.

    Lithium ion battery is not practical and economical.
    The IIT Madras research division recently invented Iron ion battery .
    This is a new hope

  7. What will be the range with using full instrument.. Like music with loud base tube, mobile charging, all lights on, with gps etc all everything???

  8. 24 lakhs for 13 years means 2 lakhs per year without servicing cost and other damage cost. We can buy petrol to run a car 42000 km. But we hardly run 15000 km max for a year. The car is not worthy i think.

  9. If you can afford an 20 lac Kia Seltos and mostly drive in the city, there's no reason why you shouldn't buy a Kona instead. The 5 lac price difference is more than made up over time in reduced fuel and service costs. But here's the catch. Lithium-ion batteries, just like in smartphones, age with time. Somewhere 5-7 years down the line, you must cough up lacs of Rupees for an expensive battery swap. This is exactly why resale value of an EV will drop like a rock after 3-4 years of ownership.

  10. Please think twice about where your electricity comes from!!! We generate our electricity by burning coal or spending water! Both the sources are a big problem in India. Just a good for thought.

  11. 2000 charge cycles when 0 to 100 %. But in real world one never charges when 0%. So will the battery life decreases in half charges.

  12. It's all cool that we have such EVs but i just cannot get over the fact that the very electricity comes from burning Fossil fuel i.e., more pollution to provide electricity for this car . How did it save the environment?
    And yes, it's not the car for the average middle class like me, so these will not be sold like I20s or the Cretas.

  13. Well it's going to help the environment only if the Electricity provided to charge it comes from a Green or a renewable source…..

  14. LOL
    Electricity(71%%) is produced in India from coal,
    So how this car is pollution free
    Buy Mercedes A class without any guilt

  15. Give an ev with 500+ km range in real world conditions and price it under rs 15lac..only then, It can replace ic engines.. otherwise, ic engines are still gonna rule.

  16. Hi
    Could you please provide service intervals and what will be charged besides braking system and battery coolant and what is the price for the coolant.
