After seeing your last year’s post about Road Tax waiver for hybrids in Chandigarh, I had cancelled my booking in Gurgaon and purchased Invicto in Chandigarh to avail the benefits in September. Really thankful to you. Got to know from your post only that Chandigarh admin stopped that scheme for Invicto in November itself.

In today’s era when cars have waiting period of more than 6 months, such frequent changes in policy are bound to leave a sour experience for many.

Looking at their plans to launch EV's & PHEV's https://www.team-bhp.com/news/mg-mot...odels-end-2025,
it's easy deduce why he got flustered by UP governments announcement bashing both mild hybrid & strong hybrids alike.

3. PHEV can solely be run on batteries if a person doesn't travel more than 80-90 kms in a day.
I knew some of the pointers above. Thanks for clarifying though. However, in some websites like CleanTechnica, I have read that many people in the US don't actually plug-in their vehicles. They just buy those to get those tax credit and things. Also , since the battery is usually a bigger one than that of the self- recharging hybrids ,how much energy is actually put back by regen? And if PHEVs do come to India, they'll help many of the fence sitters, who are still not sure of an electric vehicle, but still wants reduced fuel expenses. I hope Toyota or MG will take a step forward in this.

It is as though the Govt pranked M&M into a price cut!
Its the best time to buy a XUV7OO. XUV7OO price cut has badly affected the market since now every customer is expecting good discounts. I was offered a discount of 2+ lac on Fortuner 4x4 AT Diesel and they have a December 2023 model for which they are giving 3 lac discount without even negotiation. Can anyone tell how much discount is good for a Fortuner 4x4 diesel AT? Or I should wait for the Endeavour CBU which is slated to launch in the first half of 2025. Since the upcoming expressways demand a car with ADAS.

Size of the battery doesn't matter for regen. It will provide a set amount of voltage and current to charge the battery. It will charge both batteries with same amount.

Re: No road tax for hybrids in UP?

Mahindra & Mahindra in a recent filing in the NSE says that hybrid to the company are interim and costly solutions.
Thought like sharing with all. A honest assessment by the company.
