Neta V is a brand new EV, boasting minimalistic styling combined with one of its kind features. It was officially launched at the Neta showroom at Bhatbhateni, Kathmandu.
Mr. Nirvana Chaudhary unveiled the highly-anticipated crossover EV with esteemed Mr. Kul Man Ghising in attendance.
As for the pricing, the Hozon Neta V price in Nepal is Rs. 37.99 Lakhs.

Hozon Neta V will compete against Tata Nexon EV.
Tata Nexon EV is one of the best EVs in the Nepali market right now. It comes from a mainstream brand, offering better hardware, performance, and a reliable service network.
Ironically enough, the powertrain figures in Nexon EV are much better than the Neta V.
Nevertheless, Hozon Neta V does claim a higher range, which ultimately helps with the range anxiety.
CG Motors Addresses Neta V Pricing
CG Motors has issued a statement regarding the infamous Neta V pricing.
According to CG Motors, the government has kept friendly import rates for EVs under 100kW capacity. Moreover, 50% income tax for EVs produced or assembled in Nepal.
However, these incentives are only applicable to Nepal. If a Nepali company were to export those products, those incentives would no longer apply.
The case is similar to the China-made Neta V.
The price of Neta V in China is low due to different incentives provided by the Chinese government. However, those incentives are not applicable when exporting the same product to Nepal.
Furthermore, the automobiles follow a Left-Hand Drive in China, in comparison to Right-Hand Drive in Nepal. So, additional product research and development are required to produce EVs for the Nepali market.
These factors drive up the cost, which simply cannot be compared to prices found online.
Interestingly enough, the import papers for Neta V have been leaked online. You can view it here.
