KONA is the only electric vehicle in India in their lineup, with a price range of ₹23.79-23.97 lakhs. A more affordable EV needs to be launched to make space in the developing EV market. While there is no official word, we expect the Venue EV to be the first one converted.

The Venue is running in the compact SUV segment and has performed well. Hence it would be the right pick and go against the Nexon EV with no rivals in a similar price range. The Venue EV could be run by a 30kWh battery with a range of 300-400 kilometers. The expected charging time could be overnight for a full charge with optional fast chargers.
