Ya'll Nibbiars the Defender is literally tall. When compared to the other vehicles they look quite small. Even the velar and Range Rover Sport. And some showrooms specially in the europe are not even giving test drive to the novice driver's.

BEV, EREV, PHEV, HEV – What Do They Mean? Here’s Your Electric Vehicle Dictionary

What’s the difference between a Pure Electric, an Extended Range EV, a Plug-In Hybrid, and a Hybrid Electric Vehicle?

By John Coulter, Current EV CMO

A Pure Electric, or Battery-Powered Electric Vehicle (BEV) gets all its power from its batteries and electric motors. It contains no internal combustion engine (ICE). Its electric motor uses batteries that are recharged by plugging in to an electric power source (a wall socket or EV charger). An example is the Chevrolet Bolt. CO2 is emitted during the BEV’s manufacturing process, however no CO2 is emitted by the BEV itself, once it begins operating. The grid sending power to charging stations the BEV uses to replenish its battery may emit CO2. (A coal-burning electricity-generating plant is an example.) But extensive studies have shown that from cradle to grave, EVs emit 50 to 51% LESS CO2 than ICE vehicles– and this equation includes the emissions created by recharging the BEV’s battery from the grid.

For much more extensive information about how clean BEVs are and how they create 50 to 51% less CO2, read the article on this blog: EVs: Cleaner Cars from Cradle to Grave – Definitive Proof from the UCS (Union of Concerned Scientists)

An Extended Range Electric Vehicle
(EREV) has an auxiliary power unit (called a range extender) which increases the EREV’s driving range. Most range extenders are small internal combustion engines that drive an electric generator furnishing the electric batteries and motor with electricity. An EREV will create CO2 when its small range extender motor is operating, but not when the EREV is using its electric power. Over its lifetime, an EREV will create significantly less CO2 than an ICE car. An example of an EREV is the Extended Range BMW i3.

A Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) or Plug-In Hybrid, uses an electric motor and gas engine to operate. Its electric motor uses batteries that are recharged by plugging in to an electric power source (a wall socket or EV charger). The gas-powered motor can work together with the electric motor, or separately on its own, to power the powertrain. Extensive scientific studies have shown that powertrains using a gas engine plus an electric motor (or, in many cases, 2 or 3 electric motors), creates much better fuel efficiency. Less fuel is burned during the PHEV’s operation, reducing greenhouse gas output. An example of a PHEV is the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

A Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) is a type of hybrid vehicle and electric vehicle that combines a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) propulsion system with an electric propulsion system (hybrid vehicle drivetrain). The presence of the electric powertrain is intended to achieve better fuel economy and performance. The best example of HEV efficiency is the Toyota Prius Hybrid, which gets the best gas mileage (between 50 and 60mph) of any car using an internal combustion engine.

A Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) generates electricity to power the motor, generally using oxygen form the air and compressed hydrogen. Most Fuel Cell Vehicles are classified as ZEVs: Zero Emission Vehicles that emit only water and heat.

Not to make things difficult, but the BEV, EREV, PHEV, HEV, and even the FCEV are all considered Electric Vehicles.

An Internal combustion engine (ICE) is a heat engine where the combustion of fuel occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber. The expansion of high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by the mini explosion applies direct force to turbine blades, rotors, or as in the case with almost all cars, to pistons. The rotating pistons drive the car’s crankshaft, which turns the wheels. providing motion. When gas (or diesel fuel) is burned, the combusted material remaining is toxic gas, which pollutes the environment.

Ya'll Nibbiars there are alareday 100s of defender on the Indian roads already. How people are rich to spend 1 crore on a style statement as hardly any one is going to take it on the offroad.

Ya'll Nibbiars Tata Altroz has been gaining a lot of popularity in the Indian market in recent times. In April 2021, a total of 6,649 units of the Altroz were sold, thus pushing it to the second spot on the premium hatchback sales chart, ahead of Hyundai i20, of which 5,002 units were sold last month.

The sales of Tata Altroz were thus 32.93 per cent higher than that of Hyundai i20 last month, which is quite an impressive feat. There are plenty of reasons for the rising popularity of the Altroz in the Indian market, the biggest being the vehicle’s safety factor. With a 5-star safety rating for adult occupants (and a 3-star safety rating for children) from Global NCAP, Tata Altroz is the safest hatchback currently on sale in India.

Ya'll Nibbiars today driven the tiago at the speed of 110 km no vibration absolutely non as smooth as any Maruti vehicle but the handling was great and quick even at the high speed. Tata has done a great job at this little but important things.
Tata is catching up very fast. Tata vehicles are top class.

Ya'll Nibbiars Hyundai may face further losses.

Ya'll Nibbiars why this Beijing 7 looks to much similar to the Tivoli?.

Ya'll Nibbiars first I thought could be a original design from Geely. Then is said Na just a ripoff of the Porches and Jeep compass at the back. wouldn't be surprise if they even copied an Indian design. :dude:

Ya'll Nibbiars no surprise they already done that the Geely was just a rifle off unlike this copycat. :dude:
