          • Cons

            Hyundai Kona Electric

            • Claimed range of 452km as per ARAI. Even if the real world range drops by a big margin, there’s enough for a week’s worth of commuting
            • 3 year/unlimited km warranty on the car & 8 year/1,60,000km warranty for the battery pack
            • Feature loaded electric car. Gets goodies like LED projector headlamps, powered driver seat, heated and cooled front seats, sunroof, 8-inch touchscreen, 6 airbags, traction control & a lot more
            • Super smooth drive experience. Immediate acceleration, nearly noise free driving and easy to understand driving behaviour make it a good purchase for first time electric vehicle buyers
            • Multiple charging options - DC fast charge, level 2 AC wallbox charger & level 1 portable charger
            • Low running cost. Hyundai claims overall operational cost, including services, is 1/5th of an equivalent petrol car

            Mahindra XUV700

            • Lot of variants and powertrain options
            • Very capable engine options

            • Lacks the road presence and size of a price rival like the Compass or Tucson

            Mahindra XUV700

            • Not a fun to drive SUV
            • Petrol engine gives effortless power, but not exciting
