But the new 44.5kWh Ultra High-Density Lithium-Ion IP-67 rated new and improved Hi-Tech battery pack returns a claimed range of 419 km on a single charge which significantly more than the predecessor and has been optimised for compatibility in various climatic conditions that are observed in the Indian geography.
