Earlier this month, Bengaluru-based Pravaig Dynamics has conceptualised its first indigenous electric car which can run 504 km on a single charge. Aimed to be launched by next year, let’s see how this will level up the EV game in India.
Crux of the Matter
Fast Charging Capabilities
Pravaig’s Extinction MK-1 has a battery range of 507 km, which can replenish to about 80% in 30 mins. It also has a maximum power output of 204 PS, along with a huge 2400 Nm torque at wheel.
The Exterior Design
As per reports, MK-1 has attention-grabbing minimalistic elements, with the front sporting a grille, which is integrated with an LED light bar that connects the headlights.
What About The Interiors?
- 160 degree reclinable seats
- A sunroof
- Electrically adjustable leather seats
- A large, touchscreen infotainment system
- A digital instrument cluster
- Ambient lighting
The made-in-India car will be propelled by a 96 kWh battery pack which will power a 201 BHP electric motor. This combo will allow the EV to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds.
When Can We See It On The Roads?
Pravaig has issued a statement, stating its plans to initially produce 2,500 units of the EV annually from next year.
The Walkaround Video
The prototype of the car was spotted testing on roads in Delhi by Namaste Car, who has made a walkaround video of MK-1 here:
- In 2012, Tesla began building a network of 480-volt fast-charging Supercharger stations. As of December 2019, there are 1,716 Supercharger stations operated globally with over 15,000 superchargers. Model S and X cars ordered before January 15, 2017 received free unlimited supercharging.
- Mahindra Electric Mobility Limited, formerly known as the Reva Electric Car Company, is an Indian company based in Bangalore, involved in designing and manufacturing of compact electric vehicles.

- A Green recovery is a widely adopted name for a package of environmental, regulatory and fiscal reforms to recover prosperity after the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been broad support from political parties, governments, activists and academia across many developed economies to ensure that investments to lift countries out of economic recession are spent in a way that combats global warming, including the reduction of coal, oil, and gas use, as well as the investment in clean transport, renewable energy, eco-friendly buildings, and sustainable corporate or financial practices.
