It can reach from 0-to-60 mph in 2.78 seconds. Similarly, Denmark's Zenvo and UK-based Arash are also in the race to introduce their SHCs into the Indian market.

Arash has a unique road car aerodynamics whereas the Zenvo comes with full carbon body and steel chassis.

All the three SHCs are priced at a range of Rs 2.4-5.4-crore (Rs 24-54 million).
