Best Electric Cars

All about Best Electric Cars ✓ Price ✓ Specification ✓ Riding Range ✓ Seating Capacity ✓ Car Type ✓ Top Speed.

Electric cars are the future, and each year we’ve seen automakers add more EVs to their lineup. Everyone is working on electric vehicles, from well-established existing manufacturers to new names such as Tata, Hyundai and MG. Although the EV industry expected the budget to be as groundbreaking as promised, it didn’t quite deliver on all fronts. This has given rise to mixed sentiments in the industry. The government announced an increase in customs duty on certain auto parts that could hurt the e-mobility segment. On the other hand, in the hope to get people to purchase more environmentally friendly vehicles, the government has this year proposed the launch of voluntary vehicle scrappage. It aims at phasing out any commercial vehicle that’s older than 15-20 years. However, it’s not all gloom and doom for EVs. The industry is still on a major upward trajectory. Consumer demand triumphs in the long run and that is evident in the recent industry developments. For instance, the world’s most valuable electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla, is now all set to launch its cars in India this year. Unsurprisingly, there has been a concerted policy push at the national level to promote e-mobility, especially with the ratification of the Paris climate agreement. The National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 and Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) scheme were both announced in aspiration of an electric-only future for automobiles by 2030. In addition, a lower GST rate (12%) has been levied on electric vehicles compared to other categories.

We’ve compiled a list of best electric cars, from concept to production, that isn’t available yet but will be soon.
