Electric Vehicles in India: Unveiling the New Trend-Setter

Electric VehiclesElectric Vehicles market in India is growing rapidly. Perhaps, not only the renowned brands but also the growth of EV startups is also showing that India is all well to set a new trend across the automotive and automobile industry. To not known, electric vehicles run on an electric motor which is 100 percent eco-friendly when compared to internal-combustion engines which generate power by burning a mix of fuel and gases. In order to control rising pollution, global warming, depleting natural resources, etc. Electric Vehicles has been kept on top focus by the Indian government. Electric vehicles have two types: first one is BEVs (battery electric vehicles), which rely on batteries and the second type is known as Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), which can be operated by both petrol and electricity. The amount of driving that can be done in ‘electric’ mode depends on the capacity of the battery. The advantage of PHEVs over BEVs (battery electric vehicles) is that if you can’t get to a charging point, you can keep driving using fuel alone.

TeslaRecently, the tech-magnate, Elon Musk has announced its brand Tesla’s entry into the India market. The brand has already earned its name through various markets, like, China, South Korea, the UK, the Netherlands, and Norway and now it has reached one of the world’s top five auto markets, India. Although, there were lots of controversies about Tesla’s business in India because it considered being the most expensive brand in the world. For clearing out this issue, a news website quoted the brand, which says, “At the moment, due to the high tariffs in India, Tesla cars will be expensive. However, if the company has its own production, it will reduce the cost of cars to an acceptable level, which will make them more affordable. Thus, at some point, Tesla cars may become affordable for the middle class as well.”

The next project is from electric car maker Triton, which has announced a deal with Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) to make batteries. With the partnership of BEL, Triton is planning to start manufacturing its first vehicle in 3-6 months from now and aims to roll out the first car by the end of this year.
