Electric vehicles are going to be the future of mobility around the world. In India, we have also started seeing a wave of electric vehicles in the market. In the last couple of years, manufacturers like Hyundai MG and Tata have introduced electric vehicles in the market. Tata Nexon is also one of the most affordable and best selling electric SUVs in this segment. Other manufacturers are also planning to enter this space and one of the most popular electric vehicle manufacturer in the world Tesla has also announced that they will be entering Indian market this year. Another Indian manufacturer who has been working on a luxury sedan for our market was Bangalore based start up Pravaig. They have unveiled their first generation prototype Extinction Mk1 and they will be launching the production version of this luxury electric sedan by the end of this year. Here we have a video of a vlogger reviewing the Extinction Mk1 sedan while he gets a ride in it.
The video has been been uploaded by MR. INDIAN HACKER on his Youtube channel. The vlogger starts by explaining the design of the sedan and later in the video, the founder of Pravaig takes him on a ride in this working prototype model. The front of the sedan gets a very sharp looking design to it. It has an LED DRL bar running across the bonnet. The headlights are projector LED units and the turn indicators are also integrated inside the DRL. The grille at the front is very sleek and there are air vents seen at the front of the car.
Side profile of the car reveals the long bonnet of the sedan, which is actually a storage compartment as it does not have an engine at the front. It gets grey coloured 17 inch alloy wheels with disc brakes on all four wheels. The Extinction Mk1 is a 2-door coupe whereas the production version that will be launched in the market later will be a proper 4-door sedan. Rear gets a very unique looking LED tail lamp with Pravaig branding on it. After showing the car from outside, vlogger gets into the car and goes for a ride.
He is not alone in this ride. With him is the founder of Pravaig, Mr. Siddhartha Bagri. He explains that, they are currently working on a second generation prototype and have even completed couple of them. The vlogger was actually surprised by the fact how quick Extinction actually was. We all know that electric vehicles are quicker than a petrol or diesel powered vehicle and the Extinction Mk1 can do 0-100 kmph sprint in just 5.4 seconds.
As this is a prototype, all the buttons and emergency cut off switches are all mounted on the roof. When it hits the production line, the layout of the cabin will be different and will also offer a lot more features than Mk1. The Pravaig Extinction Mk1 uses a 96 KwH battery pack which generates around 200 Ps or power. The car supports fast charging and can charge 80 (300 kms) percent of the batteries in just 30 mins. It has a claimed maximum range of 504 kms. Pravaig won’t be setting up physical dealerships for Extinction in the country. They will only have service centers and the car would be available on on lease, subscription or rental basis.
