 As always, there’s more tech on work here - regenerative braking, alternator disengagement and other ‘efficient dynamic’ features as well. Ii is ferociously well equipped. But this also means that owners paying nearly a crore for the car are more likely to be worried about windscreen-washer consumption than fuel bills. What will cause more than some worry is the lack of a spare. Yes, run-flat tyres mean you don’t really need a spare, but there are many parts of India which are more than 100km away from a replacement tyre.
