Indian Army's all-electric Maruti Gypsy spotted

The Gypsy EV uses a 21.7 kWh, 72 Volt battery pack that is said to offer a maximum range of 120 km.

An all-electric version of the Maruti Gypsy has been spotted testing for the first time. What's interesting about this vehicle is that it's being developed by IIT Delhi and Tadpole Projects, in collaboration with the Indian Army.

On the outside, the electric version of the Gypsy looks identical to the regular Army-spec Gypsy. The only way one could identify it as an EV is by the green license plate and the decals on the body. Around 10 cars have been converted into electric as part of a pilot project.

The Gypsy EV uses a 21.7 kWh, 72 Volt battery pack that is said to offer a maximum range of 120 km. The car can reach a top speed of 70 km/h and the battery can be recharged in around 9 hours by plugging into a 15A socket.
