India’s EV is nowhere near perfect but can it improve?
Be it the international players or the domestic big dots, there is no one who would appreciate the current status of the EV sales in India but another fact they cannot seem to disagree with is the sector is surely improving.
The electric vehicle would have definitely seen a boost if it was not for the coronavirus outbreak as in 2021, there were a number of launches when it came to electric vehicles but if you are somewhere thinking that the coming years will only be limited to promoting those launches, then it is definitely not the case.
The sector is growing at a rapid speed and this year too, there are many launches lined up in the market which will further boost the use of electric vehicles. The major reason behind this is the gradual shift from petrol-based vehicles to electric vehicles due to the climate-cautious mindset.
Finances is another reason why such a shift is happening and the companies in various brands are exploring their options of investing in the field this year. The best part about the enthusiasm for the electric vehicle is that it is not just limited to the names that we are known of as many of the unknown or not-so-popular names are also looking to invest in this.
Big names like Tesla are already testing their Model 3 for a launch in India but other brands such as ORA are also trying to penetrate into the Indian market. Some of the electric vehicle options that one should explore in this and upcoming years are as follows.
One of the most relatable brands when it comes to cars in India is TATA and the conglomerate is coming up with TATA Tiago EV. The vehicle is inbuilt with a 75PS electric motor powered by the same 26 kWh battery pack.
The Mahindra eKUV100 is another one in the race. A model of this sort was first available in 2020 but then due to the pandemic, the company could not promote it further. As per the tested stats, “For the eKUV100 more specifically, we expect a 53PS producing motor capable of 125 km on a single charge thanks to a 15.9 kWh battery pack.
