Bengaluru-based Pravaig Dynamics has unveiled its first native electric vehicle,  head with Elon Musk’s Tesla when it comes to the electric vehicle market,  which promises to elevate the EV game in India. A few days ago, the EV startup formally introduced the Extinction MK1 premium electric car, which is entirely manufactured in India and will go on sale sometime next year. An electric automobile with a range of over 500 kilometers on a single charge? The most popular and well-established electric cars that are today on the market can only travel 500 kilometers at the moment. Pravaig Dynamics has introduced its first electronic car, which is expected to have a range of up to 500 kilometers. The Tesla Model S has a range of 402 miles (646 kilometers) per full charge.

And if the battery runs out, Pravaig claims Extinction MK1 can recharge to around 80% in 30 minutes. The car is powered by a 96 kHz battery, which has a maximum power output of 200 hp and a top speed of 196 kmph. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds. At first glance, the Extinction MK1’s design, which is uncommon on Indian roads, is certain to draw some attention. Some may compare the design to that of the Lucid Air EVs. The coupe-like, futuristic appearance, along with LED bars on the front and rear, distinguishes the automobile from the crowd of other vehicles now on the road. Stepping inside the Extinction MK1 reveals a spacious interior resembling a lounge. Inside, there is enough room for passengers to stretch their legs and relax while enjoying the ride. Rear passengers will also benefit from reclining seats for increased comfort. However, Pravaig has not yet released any interior photographs.

The two-door, four-seater electric vehicle will largely be utilized in commercial fleets on a subscription basis. Pravaig intends to build approximately 250 Extinction MK1 units per year. It will be sold in cities such as Bengaluru and Delhi first before the EV company expands its reach. The ironic name of the Indian EV, Pravaig Extinction MK I, alludes to the extinction of non-renewable fuel-powered cars that use petrol or diesel. In terms of design, it appears to be a cross between a reasonable sedan in the front and a hefty SUV with flared-out bumpers in the back.
