Consumers can also use a regular 220-volt wall charger to charge the car in 13.5 hours. Once the car is completely charged it can give a range of 305km, claimed by the company.
The EV also gets some latest features like electronic stability control, tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic brake-force distribution and reversing radar.
