The 30kWh variant uses sodium-ion battery chemistry which has key benefits. It becomes cheaper for manufacturers to make and are less vulnerable to cold temperatures. However, owners will have to bear the cost of lower energy density and a slower charging rate. So far known, it is the first car with a sodium-ion battery and we can only expect the li-ion variant here in Nepal.
