All you need to know about Rivian!

Rivian History R1s

Rivian, founded in 2009, is an American electric car manufacturer and automotive technology firm. Rivian is headquartered in Irvine, California, and has production plants in Normal, Illinois, Plymouth, Michigan, Palo Alto, California, Carson, California, Vancouver, British Columbia, and Woking, England. Rivian was formed in 2009 as Mainstream Motors by CEO RJ Scaringe, an MIT graduate with a background in engineering and lean manufacturing. Scaringe was raised in the Melbourne area of Florida. Scaringe became concerned that he was contributing to the contamination of an environment he sought to conserve as he grew older As a result, the firm was formed.

Rivian’s objective and vision are to continue servicing clients for as long as possible. People buy automobiles to go from one location to another or simply to have fun. The corporation recognizes this and intends to develop transportation that will last longer and cost less. Its primary market is adventure sports. It demonstrates the type of work they conduct in terms of research and development of environmentally friendly, electric automobiles. They also intend to design and create cars that will endure forever, resulting in a pollution-free planet.

Rivian Factory

The firm and its employees collaborate to make the planet pollution-free. They also hope that by purchasing their electric automobiles, more people would join their cause. Most of the company’s effort is spent on research and development for the optimal type of vehicle. It makes sense that it took them over eight years to introduce their first product. It demonstrates their intent to go beyond what they previously promised. Rivian was well-versed in both autonomous driving technology and electric car technology two years after its founding. Although the carmaker initially intended to build opulent, battery-powered cars, the rugged, off-road-oriented SUVs we see now weren’t originally the main goal.

Rivian Original Coupe

Rivian debuted a fast coupe prototype in 2011 before abandoning the entire project. Even while it appears that the coupe was a functional prototype, it’s probably for the best that Rivian initially concentrated on SUVs as numerous other EV companies have chosen the path of a high-end EV car. Rivian declared that its two alpha prototypes were finished before the end of 2017. With production set to start in 2020, the R1T truck and R1S SUV made their public debuts at the LA Auto Show less than a year later. Recently, Rivian relocated its principal office and a significant portion of its R&D to Irvine, California. Although Rivian appears to be gradually shifting everything to its new California site, several technologies are still being developed in Michigan.

Rivian R1T Pickup

The first consumer EV from Rivian planned to arrive for the firm is the R1T pickup, which has already generated a lot of buzz. This five-seat, totally electric truck provides many interesting and intriguing features that are focused on the great outdoors, as well as many unique exterior color options. Beginning in three initial trims starting with the Launch Edition in 2021, the R1T’s will come with Rivian’s mid-tier battery pack, which the automaker claims to offer a range of 300+ miles. That said its vehicles would be provided with 105 kWh, 135 kWh, and 180 kWh battery packs enabling “230+ miles, 300+ miles, and 400+ miles. The Launch Edition R1T is fully reserved but is priced starting at $75,000 The Rivian 2022 R1S SUV is the company’s second production model and one of the few three-row EVs, making it a desirable alternative for families looking to go electric. The R1S has many characteristics with the R1T truck, including its 128.9-kWh battery pack, which the EPA says is suitable for 316 miles of driving per charge. The R1S is powered by a quad-motor system that generates 835 horsepower. An adjustable air suspension is standard, allowing the R1S to attain a maximum ground clearance of 15.0 inches. With 835 horsepower on board, the R1S feels incredibly fast. The R1S accelerates to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. Rivian plans to focus on the pickup truck, SUV, and commercial van market segments in the near term. Its focus geographies initially include the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe. In the long term, the company hopes to grow by entering new key markets as well as developing adjacent products.

An Upgrade to the EV Game !!

One can’t deny the fact that the world of EV cars is soon going to hit its heyday. Seeing that EVs are experiencing a successful transition, the government of India has come up with a massive initiative of setting up EV battery testing centers in Mumbai and Kolkata in FY24.

This initiative exhibits the far-sighted vision of the government by making the right move which can produce exhilarating results.
Currently, our country’s need for services for EVs and their batteries is backed by the only two agencies we have, namely the Manesar-based International Centre for Automotive Technology and the Pune-based Automatic Research Association of India (ARAI).
Additionally, the Indian government has also toughened the safety standards for EV batteries. The same has been explicitly expressed in the form of amendments to AIS 156 and AIS 038.

This was implemented as the country witnessed an array of fire incidents involving EVs in the country. Never a good thing, right?

The vehicles that were believed to be involved in the accident were Two-wheeler EVs of a number of OEMs, namely Ola Electric, Okinawa Autotech, and Pure EV.
But is that all? Hardly.

It’s said that the government would not deter a bit in even posing penalties on the companies involved in the accident.

Only fair one reckons.

There is further good news for the potential users of EVs, the government is coming up with a new promising and value-creating app called National Test House (NTH) which will streamline many aspects of EVs.

This app will help in verifying consumer claims, and conducting tests keeping in mind the mandated standards, and will accelerate quality consciousness.
Though there has been a dip in the demand for two-wheelers in the recent month, but if we look at the larger picture one can only anticipate the tidal wave of positive change that the upcoming generation will usher in.

This, pragmatically speaking, is the age of EV vehicles, where the share of EVs in the sales of two-wheeler and three-wheeler vehicles is expected to rise exponentially to 50% to 70% respectively in the country by 2030.

Here’s what’ll appeal to the EV-liking Urban Mobility optimist there’s an ecosystem being made that’ll propel the world toward the path of unprecedented sustainability.

The Pravaig Defy, a path-breaking EV SUV, is here!


35 of the world’s most polluted cities happen to be in India. Delhi, Ghaziabad, and Gurgaon aren’t the only names in a list no Indian should be proud of.
Kanpur, Varanasi, and Patna have made the not-so-envy-inspiring list. 
This isn’t random name-calling; among the world’s largest free real-time air quality information platforms says this in no uncertain terms.
So where does India, one of the world’s most admired cultures albeit one with an explosive population rate go next?
For how much longer can it defy the truth that given its burgeoning pollution levels, ever-increasing population, and not to mention, rising fuel costs, things aren’t going to get any easier?
That’s as if things anyways were.
Could it be that things we can no longer deny as existing crises can be tackled smartly and intelligently?
What if, instead of choosing to overlook the chaos that’s wiping our peace and hampering progress (at multiple levels- economical, social), one opted for Defy?
Can Pravaig, which describes itself as a Deep Tech company and is one of India’s fastest-growing EV startups arm India with something that’s much needed?
And needed now?
While predicting the future- or the immediate present- is something that’s right up the stockbroker’s ally, what one knows is that Pravaig’s Defy is here and is expected to make heads turn.
In the next few hours from now, the Pravaig Defy, an all-encompassing pure-electric SUV, will greet the national capital of a country in an event, which I’ve heard will floor Delhi and ditto for the remainder of the country.
So what are we talking about?
Pravaig Defy specifications

Auto lovers, thrill seekers, believers in the mélange of tech and urban mobility, EV enthusiasts, the chaos-battling, deadline-afflicted, who spend countless hours amid traffic snarls in a city and those who love stepping out will find Defy an able answer to a plethora of problems, and a stylish one at that. 
Moreover, those driven by a sense of conscientiousness in what are hazardous times for the country will find Defy as their go-to drive for a host of features, some of these include: 
The Defy comes with a huge touchscreen infotainment system with several connectivity choices, linked car technology, and the path-breaking Devialet sound system and that’s just the beginning.
With an air purifier and USB Type-C charging outlets, wireless phone charging, there’s also a rear touchscreen. How cool is that?
Combining seating comfort with peerless design, the Pravaig Defy breaks biases and misconceptions that allude to the fact that only the west can make kickass pure-electric drives! 
That said, there’s more?
That told- the SUV’s specs back the captivating design of the Defy with power and purpose!
Defy, Pravaig’s premium all-electric SUV is available in no fewer than eleven hues that might increase in the course of the future. 
These include:
Emperor Purple, Shani Black, Kaziranga Green, Haldi Yellow, Hindigo, Moon Gray, Bordeaux, Lithium, Vermillion Red, Siachen Blue, and 5.56 Green.
From vivid hues to finding clues about just what makes the Defy tick and what can one expect from the Bengaluru-based company’s offering, it’s important to note what among the pillars behind India’s most exciting start-ups had to say:
Ram Divedi, co-founder, of Pravaig Dynamics, shared insights about their EV that points to the vision of an organization built on the irrefutable passion to serve India and the world. 
“These electric cars have an upper edge in comparison to other vehicles, which run on petrol on the Pakistani and Chinese borders because in these places there is no petrol and it is transported through trucks, which needs a huge supply chain,” shared the Kashi-born professor of Geopolitics. 
So what do we know more about their pure-electric drive? Does it have a purpose for the defense establishment of the world’s largest democracy? 
“We are in touch with the Armed forces. Maximum accommodation in the car for the Indian Army will be for 10 persons,” stated Pravaig’s neatly dressed co-founder, who comes across as an Avant-garde artist.
Though, a few things stand out as well as Pravaig CEO Siddhartha Bagri’s no-nonsense and straightforward approach towards the realm of Technology and EV:
“Pravaig is the only company focused on the Right of Repair, Upgradability, and Data protection. An unmet need of users in Europe and the USA! We believe that Defy Technology represents the future direction of all EV technologies.”

At a time when most EV makers in the country are caught up with the biggest question of them all range anxiety- it’s exciting to note Pravaig’s futuristic ambitions.
That’s not all; the Pravaig Defy unveiling, scheduled for November 25, 2022, which is just a few hours away, is poised to be a mega event.
True to the organization’s full name Pravaig Dynamics, the event is expected to be a dynamic marriage between dazzling event decor, cutting-edge technology, and appealing music.
All of this with the Pravaig Defy at the center of it all!
And there’s yet more; you won’t just see the captivating beauty that is the Pravaig Defy, you can actually experience the one-of-a-kind, powerful, feature-loaded SUV EV yourself.
So how’s that?

Experiential drives!
One and all can test ride the Pravaig Defy, the most powerful EV SUV at the event itself over an obstacle course that’ll be as thrilling as it will be engaging.
As per company sources, the obstacle path is primed to be a 2 to 2.5-minute ride.
But one reckons, it’ll eventually be a gain for one who undertakes the test drive and that’s not just down to a bouquet of features that ultimately raise the experience of being with Pravaig and its beautiful creation.
At a time when there are obstacles aplenty in front of us- incessantly rising fuel costs, bizarre car maintenance costs, and whatnot, this test drive is actually a test of what we ultimately choose:
Should we stick with Petrol and diesel car ownership amid problems aplenty? Or,
Defy the ‘has-been’ aka the norm that’s actually taking none of us anywhere?
With so much to look forward to, given its visionary approach towards Electric Vehicles, the Pravaig Defy, one can’t deny, is poised to be a head-turner.

The EV Daily wishes the entire Pravaig team all the very best.

If there’s ever a time to Take Back Control, then it’s now!

Mahindra and Mahindra Sign Partnership Agreement for EV Charging Network!

Many questions strike the mind the moment one says electric cars. Not because the concept is specifically difficult to understand. Rather the EV revolution is something that can shake up those who are ignorant about a basic truth:

That the time is now, that there’s no going back on ICE.

But then what are those questions anyway?

How to charge an EV? Where will get the charging station? Is an EV reliable for long rides? What is the battery life, and so on and so forth?

That told it’s important to note what the widely noted Indian carmaker Mahindra has in store where its EV initiatives are concerned.

To that end, it is important to note that the company has only recently taken steps towards the establishment of EV charging infrastructure and not only that; signed an agreement with 3 EV charging installation companies.

Their names- are Jio Bp, Statiq, and Charging+Zone!

Further to the above, it’s important to note that the above aim is to install new fewer than 2,500 charging stations in 25 cities.

To that end, it will be easy to discover charging stations in the nearest driving locations, which will be connected through E-mobility navigation.

If that does not change what’s needed in the space of the EV revolution, then what is?

Myriad- albeit crucial- locations such as highways, petrol pumps, parking shopping malls, tourist places, and hospitals, all of which are easy-to-access charging points are, therefore, being considered.

And rightly so!

That told, the president of Mahindra, Mr. Vijay Nakra said the following,” I am happy to announce that we tied a partnership with big EV charging solution companies Jio Bp, Statiq, and Charging+Zone, which will show faith and strong relationship between Mahindra customers, who believe in us. It will be helpful to adopt EV on large scale.”

That said, the CEO of Charging+Zone stated some key insights on the basis of the above, “We believe in a clean and green atmosphere, which is proof of our partnership with Mahindra. We aim to provide fast charging all over India, which will be essential to increase awareness towards the green revolution.”

Charging+Zone, it ought to be noted, is noted and among the largest Indian charging infrastructure companies around, which installs many charging stations across various cities.

But all of that said, here’s what seems to be the key takeaway: It’s crucial to install a fast-charging station for upcoming cars if one is to truly stoke India the electric way.

The Latest Mahindra EV Segment Trends: Hip or Hype?

When we talk about the company called Mahindra, then what is the first thing that comes to your mind?

Dependable cars? Integrity? Reliable automotive? Maybe there’s something more? 

Now could it be that the famous company has come out with whose time has come and can no longer be avoided?

Truthfully speaking, but hey, whatever one writes in the public domain, even in today’s so-called age of “integrity,” will obviously speak the truth! 

So on to the point- perhaps it may no longer be incorrect to state that when it comes to the domain of electric mobility, Mahindra, owned by Anand Mahindra and Dr. Anish Shah (MD/CEO of this company from April 2021 onwards), has done their fair bit in the sphere of Electric vehicles.

How’s that? Furthermore, is this a huge claim or something that’s a bit too underrated?

Imagine how the largest tractor manufacturing company worldwide, ranked 17th on a list of top companies, is already a well-known name where the EV segment in India is concerned?

The company is working towards many sectors such as Mahindra AerospaceMahindra Financial Services LimitedTech MahindraMahindra Lifespace DevelopersMahindra Ugine Steel Company, and Bristlecone Mahindra Systech ETC.

For a company that has as its founder a man who doesn’t pose but is actually a Deshbhakt, it is about time that we gave Anand Mahindra his due; a man whose company has today given India cars in multiple segments, whether one speaks of e-Verito or the not so too recent the XUV 400, the latter rivaling (if not primarily) Tata’s NEXON.

That said, let us spend a few minutes appreciating Mahindra’s EV offerings (specs, features); remember it’s a brand whose diversity is redoubtably impressive:

That’s when one speaks of Mahindra Aerospace, Mahindra Financial Services Limited, Tech Mahindra, Mahindra Lifespace Developers, Mahindra Ugine Steel Company, and Bristlecone Mahindra Systech, to quote a few!

Mahindra E Verito

It was well over half a decade back in the day that Mahindra launched its first electric car, which was an e- Verito.

A sedan, still running popularly on Indian roads is priced at INR 9.5 lakh for the base D2 variant. However, The D4 and D6 prices were INR 9.75 lakh and INR 10 lakh, respectively.

The company claimed a top speed of 86 KMPH. That’s not THE EV Daily’s claim, but as said, the claim of the firm.

Moreover, the total range was noted to be 100 km on one single (or as they say) full charge.

That told, the following statement of fact, as quoted by the revered Business Standard does seem to suggest that there are massive plans for the future of the country, particularly from an EV point of view. Which is why it is worthwhile to note the following:

Mahindra has lined up five new electric Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) with the first four expected to hit the market between December 2024 and 2026.

To conclude a story that given the regard Mahindra deserve should actually continue for they’ve contributed spectacularly toward upping India’s ante in EVs (as have the Tata’s), the above is hardly surprising since it’s coming from a visionary who happens to be Anand Mahindra.

A man who the youngsters of our country must read more about if they are willing to understand the meaning of inspiration.
