While the Drive EZ kit takes 5-6 hours to recharge, the charging time for the Travel EZ kit is 8-10 hours. The top speed is restricted to 80 km/h (commercial use) and 140 km/h (private vehicles).
The company has not announced the exact price of the EV conversion kits for the Dzire, but it is said to cost around Rs. 5-6 lakh. Bookings are expected to open soon, and customers will be able to order the kits by paying a token amount of Rs. 25,000.
For the Tata Ace, the company offers the Shaandaar and Damdaar kits, with a maximum range of 80-100 km and 160-190 km, respectively. It takes 5-6 hours to recharge the battery in the Shaandaar kit. It can be recharged in just 2 hours using a fast charger.

According to the company, these are plug and play kits and don’t require any modifications. That said, the internal combustion engine has to be removed to install these kits.
