          Not Sure, Which car to buy?

          Let us help you find the dream car

          Pros and Cons

          • Pros
          • 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

            Nissan Magnite

            • Smartly designed sub-compact SUV. Very well proportioned
            • Spacious and practical cabin. A good SUV for the family
            • Comfortable ride quality. Bad roads can be tackled with confidence
            • Turbo petrol engine offers good driveability and punch.
            • Impressive features list

            Hyundai Kona Electric

            • Average cabin space. Not comparable to a similarly priced petrol/diesel SUV like the Jeep Compass or Hyundai Tucson
            • Average boot space is on par with sub-10 lakh Rupee hatchbacks
            • Limited traveling charge options. You will depend on availability of fast charge stations or have to use the portable charger that takes several hours for a full charge
            • Lacks the road presence and size of a price rival like the Compass or Tucson

            Nissan Magnite

            • Fitment quality is decent but not premium. Doesn’t feel as rich inside as a Sonet/Venue/XUV300
            • Not an exciting or fun to drive car, even with the turbo petrol engine
            • No diesel engine option
            • Nissan’s sales and service network is currently lagging behind the competition
