The Indian Driving Cycle (IDC) idea, which is provided in the CMVR annexures

e who prefer to dive down to the actuals), is the foundation for ARAI range estimation.

To put it briefly, the tests are just 10 km in length and last 19 minutes. 

Their goal is to replicate Standard Test Conditions (STC) for roads and towns, 

even in the absence of temperature control. The maximum speed is restricted to 90

km/h, and the average speed is 31 km/h. Acceleration and deceleration are relatively moderate.
