Often regarded as Captain Cool, MS Dhoni purchased the EV6 with a Moonscape Grey exterior paint scheme. The Kia EV6 was recently launched in India and it’s currently priced from Rs 59.95 lakh, ex-showroom.
A video that has been posted on Twitter by an MSD fan shows that MS Dhoni took his fellow cricketers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Kedhar Jadhav for a joyride in his new eco-friendly prized possession in Ranchi.
