Top 10 Electric Car Brands in India

     We are all aware of the environmental advantages of electric vehicles, which make them the preferred form of transportation in the future. While many people around the world have already switched to environmentally friendly vehicles, Indians are only now beginning to recognize the advantages and potential of electric vehicles. In 2019-2020, electric car sales were up by 20%. Because of this rapid demand, automakers are developing new battery-powered vehicles virtually annually.

     The rising petrol and diesel prices are also one of the main reasons why people have taken a lot of interest in buying electric vehicles. India is on the verge of an electric transportation revolution. India has over 14 lakh electric cars running on the roads. This data was shared by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. Given the government's commitment to expanding the use of electric vehicles, it won't be long until these innovative new automobiles are commonplace on city streets.

     By 2030, the Indian automobile sector, which currently ranks fifth globally, is projected to overtake the United States as the largest. By 2030, NITI Aayog wants to see EV sales penetration for all commercial vehicles reach 70%, for private vehicles to reach 30%, for buses to reach 40%, and for two- and three-wheelers to reach 80%.

     If you are someone who is looking to buy a new electric car, here is a list of the ten best electric car brands currently attracting Indian buyers.
