Good on them for aiming towards a 5-star safety rating. Heartening to see a new entrant taking safety seriously.

But, it is not clear which agency are they talking about here. The disclaimer at the end of the ‘safety’ section is something Maruti proudly claims whenever somebody poses the security question to them.

5-STAR SAFETY
DEFY is remarkable, the same goes for the safety features that come with her.
Because she achieves the perfect balance of everything you need to do with everything you want for the safety of loved ones.
Pravaig DEFY meets & exceeds the standard safety requirements.

When and how did this even happen? The Extinction was previewed by media and opinion was that it holds promise but is far far from completion. This was some time last year. And now this! This wasn't even spotted once on test was it? Plus this comes will good stuff beyond what Extinction promised.

Why does the opening post look more like a promotion? And where is the car? All is see is metal and a light bar.

Test drives are available only for people in the reservation queue according to the website. Interesting.
However I am grateful to Pravaig for expanding my vocabulary. Performant.

Is this actually the model to be sold? Looks(whatever little is visible) more like a concept

It does not look like any of these are actual car pictures. All seems to be artist rendition, in other words Photoshop.

Wouldn't be surprised if they turn out like that Freedom mobile scam.

"Pravaig" means "speed" in Sanskrit. Nice name for sure.

On the website, it says "dual monitor." Am I missing something or is that supposed to say "dual motor?" Or are there literally two monitors in this car?

I'm somehow not fully convinced by what's on the website. Everything mentioned is very vague and generic, such as in these pictures. What's "complete & true privacy" supposed to refer to? It requires some context in the automotive sense. "Software and hardware upgradable" is also just thrown in with not a single explanation or reference anywhere else.

Maybe I'm nitpicking linguistic choices here, but "glass smooth suspension" is a term I've never come across even once before. Once again, it is just thrown in; is it adaptive or adjustable in any way?

There's a typo here too. Surely, in this day and age, one can at least ensure conformity to grammar on the otherwise official-looking webpage of a luxury car costing nearly 40 lakhs? I'm not convinced by this at all.

And finally, "cooled and electric adjust" seems to be rather poor syntax, as it could be interpreted as a literally cooled adjustment mechanism!

There isn't a single picture on the website that shows any angle other than the rear three-quarters. Is this genuine or is it India's own Nikola? The Extinction caught my attention last time, and I'm surprised to see a new model even though that isn't complete yet. This had my curiosity, but it now has my full attention. If anyone has any more information, it would be welcome.

If anyone is truly truly paying 39.5 lakhs for this, please expect your money to be stuck in queues and waiting periods with renders supposedly being a "launch vehicle".

This is why Indian EV Startups are becoming a major mockery with unfinished websites, no ready products and most importantly no service backup in case things go wrong.

There used to be a time when renders and drawings were released 36 months in advance of the car being launched but this seems like a big ol' joke.

There's an Autocar video on the Pravaig defy, and they have a real car in front of them. Although on first sight it looks like a big cardboard box.

A pre production car on display.

Since I'm a totally jobless guy who lacks the intelligence to design and manufacture a kickass electric car, I read through their warranty statement. Interestingly the warranty on the Defy doesn't cover injector cleaning, engine decarburizing, engine tuning, oil/fluid changes,. They also make it perfectly clear that they will under no circumstances replace the spark plugs under warranty. So be warned and do carry extra plugs on long trips.
This is absolutely bananas!

That box is so barebones that it's making the xpresso look loaded. Even if they do load it up later, why would anyone spend money on this and not just get a BYD Atto 3 beats me?
People have burnt their fingers with even DC Avanti and Ola Scoot so not sure who is going to really plonk their money based on a half baked concept and a website full of promises + some bad grammer/spelling good ups.
