Toronto-based Conquest Vehicles, the manufacturer of the popular Knight XV, an armoured, hand-built SUV, has launched the Evade in India.
Priced at Rs 8.5 crore, the Evade is the costliest SUV available in India.
The vehicle is powered by a 6.8-litre engine that churns out 400 Bhp of power at 2215 Nm of torque.
The SUV is a luxurious six-seater with a cabin space of 400 cubic feet, with the second and third rows facing each other in a limousine-like arrangement.
Some of the exciting features include a retractable flat screen television, three sun roofs, joystick-controlled roof-mounted searchlights and even a night-vision camera.
In India, the 4x4 comes in both diesel and petrol options, and should be available by the end of the year.
Several parts of the vehicle adhere to the ‘hand-crafted’ tradition of the company. The steering wheel, proprietary hinges, running boards and even the key itself are machined out of solid stainless steel. The handles are machined out of a solid block of aluminum.
