Found the following video about another "Bolt EV" car prototype made by TATA, who produces for the India market:


I'm not sure what to make of this.

According to autocarindia, this is not yet a production car, and it looks like they have replaced the fuel tank in their regular liquid fuel TaTa Bolts with a 16kWh battery, and replaced the engine with a 109 hp electric motor. It looks like it takes overnight to recharge the battery. Probably something similar to an early leaf in terms of likely range, but I have not found any range figures yet.

Wow, 100km or 60miles of range per recharge.
Top speed 85~90kph or 55mph.
It looks like a development car and something to show that TATA is trying to keep up with the EV technologies.
It's very much a car just for show and nothing they would sell.

Unless they sell it for 10 Lakh, which is not impossible. India is known for pulling off a spectacular high-tech project for a fraction of the feasibility study cost in the US :)
