CG has a history of serving the nation for more than 150 years. Continuing this journey, CG now is embarking on the promotion and sales of eco-friendly mobility.

CG Motors, MD, Nirvana Chaudhary said, “As per the government’s NDC report, transport sector’s consumption of petroleum is the highest in the country and Nepal targets to reduce transport sector’s dependency on fossil fuels by 50% by 2050. CG Motors feels that the target can be met if we have electric mobility for mass vehicles in private and commercial sectors. Electric mobility presents an attractive option to reduce the national trade deficit and foster long-term domestic sustainable energy solutions. So, we are intending to embrace sustainable mobility in both private and commercial sectors in Nepali Market.”

CG Motors has introduced electric crossover car ‘NETA V’ in Nepal. ‘NETA V’ is one of the top three EV brands owned by Hozon Auto Company in China. The brand has been ranked among the first echelon and rapidly growing brands. NETA V was first launched in 2020 and ‘NETA U Pro’ was officially launched in 2021 and ‘NETA’ was on show.

The vehicle is powered by an electric motor to the front axle with a power output of 70kW/95 PS and 160 Nm of torque mated to a CATL lithium battery pack 38.5 kWh capable of a range of 380+ km (NEDC). With a top speed of 101 kmph, Neta V is a perfect drive partner for a highway too.

This car can be charged within just 20 minutes (30%-80%) through DC charging, whereas it takes less than six hours through AC Charging (6.6 kW).

The company is offering a warranty period of 8 years or 150,000km in battery which is backed up by advanced thermostatic BMS with automatic heating and cooling function that keeps the battery in the best working condition during any climate. Vehicle Motor also comes with the same warranty period while 10-year warranty has been offered on other non-moveable exterior parts.

In every purchase, the company is providing an additional 6.6 kW home-based charger and one-year comprehensive insurance for free.

During the unveiling of Neta V, CG Motors CEO, Hemant Agrawal said, ” CG Motors is a new venture of Chaudhary Group for New Energy Vehicle. We are committed to changing the transport landscape of Nepal by bringing in vehicles of the best quality incorporating the latest technology innovations.

CG has a plan to venture into private vehicle segment as well as the commercial and public transport market by introducing light commercial vehicles such as 11 to 14 seat capacity which can be used to replace existing petrol/diesel microbuses operating in the country.

On the other hand, commercial diesel vehicles are one of the major contributors to pollution and in this segment also, we will be introducing 1.5 to 2.5 tons capacity EV pick-up vehicles.  CG Motors is rapidly building state-of-the-art workshops for the customer and intends to deploy charging networks in all the major highway routes and areas of EV operation.”
