Thank You Hundai for coming up with a good electric car. Since 2030 is the deadline to go all electric, Automobile Industry needs to catch up with time. Though the price is on the higher side, I am sure once it goes into mass production, the prices will drop.

Great Start for India! The prices will come down as soon as the competition which is hardly two years away will arrive. Nobody needs technology more than India to solve its problems and this is just a start.

18 hours for full charge means how much electricity consumption, how much coal burnt for producing that much electricity. Are e-cars eco friendly really?

EVs are the need of the present day mobility and Hundai is to be congratulated for being first to market it''s SUV.,But the cost is too high. Remember car is not a luxury in India.

People are questioning who will buy such expensive electric car. Well they have introduced it to Indian market as this is the future. It is already running in other countries for past 5-7years.

For this power , pricing point it fine

The price will come down by at least 20% once economies of scale come into play. Hyundai is probably looking at annual sales of a couple of thousand units in the first couple of years if that at all. The battery price should come down significantly after 2020. Come to think of it this works out to almost 35K US dollars. That is expensive. I would say it is almost a non starter at this price point. Something in the 15-20lakh range would have been slightly more appealing.

If you take loan to buy this car, how much are you paying interest ? Add that interest amount & see the actual cost. If you take a car on rent as per your neefs, calculate you will never pay this much amount in your lifetime ! Don''t forget about depreciation of car also if you buy !!
Hi Sudip•Unknown•1 day ago
Only 25 Lakhs ! Make 50 Lakhs & close the factory !!

How do you charge the car if you live in a high rise flat????
Stud Baker• askme young•1 day ago
Stupid question. Do you take the car upstairs with you in high rise flat? You charge the car where you park. Have a socket install near your parking. All the buildings have sockets somewhere in parking.
Vinod• askme young•1 day ago
Either you are really dumb or you are being sarcastic. For all the high rises the meter room is at the ground floor. You need to pull the wire from the energy meter till your parking lot. It won't cost much.

disposal of battery spread more pollution than petrol or diesel bcoz it has lead, lithium etc
Stud Baker• Gagan•1 day ago
these batteries are recyclable. These are not lead-acid batteries which are bad for environment. Most of contents are recyclable. They pollute much less than old type batteries.

Who will buy 26 lakh Rupees car, when, you can buy 5 cars for same price, next charging takes so much time, and where to charge, if you have drive long distance ? Good for environment but bad for pocket and not practical at leadt in India, may be good for south Korea.
