Bengaluru-based EV start-up Pravaig Dynamics is all set to introduce its first electric car Defy SUV in India on November 25 with a range of more than 500 km on a single charge.
Talking to The Statesman, Ram Divedi, co-founder and Chief Strategic Officer of Pravaig Dynamics, said the company’s first electric car, Defy SUV, is different in comparison to other electric cars which are present in the market as space for luggage in this car is very high because it is SUV adding that the company built this platform for multiple applications as this car is made for both civilians and the Indian Army.
Divedi said the company is going to launch its first electric car, Defy SUV, on November 25 in New Delhi.

The co-founder of Pravaig Dynamics said that these electric cars will help the Indian Army as they are extremely stable and there is no noise in the vehicle.
He said another advantage for the Indian Army is that “These electric cars have an upper edge in comparison to other vehicles which run on petrol on the Pakistani and Chinese borders because in these places there is no petrol and it is transported through trucks which needs a huge supply chain.”
But for electric cars there are some extra batteries that are needed while traveling in groups, Divedi said.
He said the Indian Army has shown interest in the purchase of electric cars and the price will be different because the Army takes in bulk and there is a tender process.
“We are in touch with the Armed forces,” he said.
Divedi said four civilians can be accommodated in this luxury car and for the Indian Army, it will be the same luxury car and the size would be also the same but the seating inside the car for the Indian Army will be different.
“Maximum accommodation in the car for the Indian Army will be for 10 persons,”  he said.
The Army uses lots of electronic devices which need to be charged so these electric cars can be used as energy production devices while in petrol cars it is difficult to charge the electronic devices, he said.
Divedi said to charge electric cars, charging points are available throughout the country.
The co-founder of Pravaig Dynamics said these electric cars have lots of luxury features, more space, leg space, the best air purifying system, and the best sound system.
Divedi further said, “One thing we do is that we don’t do ads for the promotion of cars.”
Marketing of the electric car is through social media platforms and it is completely digital, he said.
Divedi said the price would be less in comparison to other electric vehicles adding that the company has plans to expand pan-India.
He said 80 percent of the parts of this electric car are made in India.
The co-founder of Pravaig Dynamics said there is a right to repair and right to upgrade this electric car.
“This car can be upgraded from anywhere,” he said.
He said Defy electric SUV can reach from 0 to 100 kmph in 4.3 seconds and the average speed of the SUV is 210 km per hour.
The co-founder of Pravaig Dynamics said 80 percent of the car can be recharged in 30 minutes.
He said the company has plans to reach the target of 1 million in terms of export of the car in Europe, Singapore, the Middle East, South America, Peru, and Vancouver.
NATO forces and Middle East countries have shown interest in purchasing these electric cars, he added.
