    Pravaig Veer: exterior

    Based on the Defy SUV, the Veer has a bare-bones structure and comes with only essential items such as a rollbar, bonnet, fenders and boot as standard. The Veer does not feature any doors for easier ingress and egress for soldiers. However, Pravaig says it can also be configured to have a closed-cab design.

    The Veer is powered by a dual-motor set-up that sends power to all four wheels. Combined, the permanent magnet synchronous motors produce 408hp and 620Nm of torque. It can do a 0-100kph run in 4.9sec (claimed) and achieve a top speed of 210kph (claimed). 

    It has a 90.9kWh lithium-ion battery with a claimed range of more than 500km. Pravaig claims the battery can last for more than 10 lakh km and can be charged from 0-80 percent in 30 minutes. 

    The Veer EV measures 4,940mm in length, 1,950mm in width, 1,650mm in height with a wheelbase of 3,030mm. It weighs 1,870kg and Praviag claims it can carry a payload of 690kg and tow up to 2,500kg.
