An official statement about this is yet to come from the company. Industry experts believe that if it is true, then the new battery pack will deliver an average of 400 km on a single charge.

Some of the changes like new diamond-cut alloy wheels may be offered to its side-profile. The rear portion will not receive any change.
Inside the cabin, there will be no change and will continue to come with the same seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, that supports connectivity with a smartphone, a semi-digital instrument cluster with a 7-inch TFT display. Other features include multiple airbags, cornering stability control, ABS+EBD with ISOFIX child seat anchors, auto climate control and a few more.
