Turbocharged September 2023 Issue:
#MADMAX: We got an exclusive preview of the the Pravaig Interceptor, that’s our cover star for this month’s issue
Our September 2023 issue couldn’t have celebrated World EV Day in a better way than bringing out a world exclusive review of the upcoming Pravaig Interceptor – a very special EV with the Indian Army in mind. That’s not all, as we get behind the wheel of the new Lexus LX 500d and the new-gen BMW X1. Independence Day was a special one too, driving around the made in India Mahindra XUV700 in South Africa and we take you through all the happenings of the famed Pebble Beach Concourse held in California this month. The positivity in the world of two wheels continues with us sampling two iconic nameplates that return; the Hero Karizma XMR and the 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350. Sticking with the EV theme, we’ve also ridden an electric 3-wheeler, the Mahindra Treo, apart from the Ather 450S and the Ola S1 Air electric scooters.
