So, if you are one of those people, here are some of the upcoming cars under Rs. 1 Crore in India.

The Ford Mustang has been the go-to muscle car that Indian buyers never got a chance to experience.

As expected, not a lot is known about the Mustang that will be made available in India but there are some specifications that have been released.

According to the rumours, the 2.3L engine is expected to generate 310hp while the 5.0L engine is expected to produce 450hp. In the transmission department, the Mustang 2021 is expected paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

Hyundai Nexo

Expected Launch15 October 2021
Engine120kW Electric Motor
Expected Range600-1000 Kms

The world is slowly but steadily moving towards the electrification of automobiles. Electric Vehicles or EVs have become increasingly popular in countries like the USA, England, Canada, and France, and are majorly used in countries like Norway (74.8%), Iceland (45%), and Sweden (32.2%). India too has been embracing the electric route with electric scooters on an all-time high right now. EV cars are also quite popular and some of the biggest names in the industry already have a few models in their lineup. Hyundai is also entering the game with the upcoming Nexo. The Nexo is expected to be powered by a 120kW electric motor that is expected to generate 163Ps of power and 395Nm of torque. Powering the motor will be Hydrogen fuel cells and a battery pack that will increase the capacity to 135kW. The Nexo has been tested in Europe and it has produced a range of about 600 kms on a single charge, but Hyundai believes that the Nexo could easily have a 1,000 km range in India. Some of the features teased on the Nexo include ventilated front seats, a digital instrument cluster, automatic tailgate, and a sunroof, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and wireless charging. Safety features on the Nexo should include ABS with EBD, adaptive cruise control, park assist, lane keep assist, and forward-collision assistance.

What we can expect on the EQA is luxury in the form of a dual 10.25-inch touchscreen setup, LED headlamps and taillights, MBUX infotainment system, blue accents for ambient lighting, and a digital assistant. Safety will also be a priority on the EQA and it is expected to come with ABS with EBD, Active Distance Assist, Active Steer Assist, Active Blind Spot Monitoring, and Evasive Steering Assist.

Expected to power the S90 2021 is a 2.0L Twin-Turbocharged diesel engine that is capable of producing 190Ps of power and 400Nm of torque.
